    In this activity, students build an aquifer model and examine how water gets into an aquifer system.

    By the end of this activity, students should be able to:

    • discuss the part groundwater plays in the water cycle
    • describe the various pathways precipitation can take once it falls to the ground – infiltration, run-off, evaporation and uptake by plants
    • discuss the link between groundwater, surface water and the water table.
