Daily Objectives #7 (February 3, 2009)                                        Dr. Sanders

By the end of today's class, you should be able to do the following:

Experiments on Water Flow

  Give your Homework #2 presentation.  Evaluate your colleagues' presentations using the rubric we developed together

Water Flow--Lab Explorations (continued from last time):  Investigate, discover, and articulate the general principles that describe the movement of water and the factors that drive it.  Use simple lab set-ups to investigate the movement of water through open conduits and through porous media. 

v  Review what we learned last week in Infiltration Observation and Capillary Action.

Activities for today:  (Click here for an MSWord copy of the instructions.) 

v  Using simple sketches, show how water would flow from one container (like a rain barrel) into another if they were connected by hoses.
