Review from last time
Using simple sketches, show
would flow from one container (like a rain barrel) into another if they were
connected by hoses.
Describe the relationship
between capillary rise and pore diameter.
Review: Define and draw a diagram illustrating the water table, capillary fringe,
saturated zone, tension-saturated zone.

What makes water flow?
Explorations (continued from last time)
- Darcy Discovery:
Complete your investigation from last
time, measuring the flow rate of water through various samples of sediment.
We will compare values as a group.
v Using the ground
water model ("sand tank"), inject colored dye and keep track of its flow over
time. Observe the flow paths created by all the dye inputs. What
makes water flow?
