Fun Activities for School Age Children

By Lori Davison, The Groundwater Foundation

Now that July 4th has passed, summer vacation for school age children will be coming to a close soon!  Running out of fun activities for them to do?  The Groundwater Foundation has just the answer for you!  Check out a couple of our products that will bring hours of fun (and also they will be learning all about groundwater in the process!)
Check out the Awesome Aquifer Kit (AA Kit):
The Awesome Aquifer Kit is a great tool for school age children.  It is a hands-on kit that has everything you need to build your own working aquifer model.  They will learn:  
  • What an aquifer is
  • What role groundwater plays in the hydrologic cycle
  • What happens when groundwater is contaminated
  • Connections between groundwater and surface water
  • How difficult it is to clean up contaminated groundwater        

Another fun activity is the JUG (Just Understanding Groundwater):

The JUG is a self-contained aquifer science kit.  It contains all the tools to construct a groundwater flow model. The activities demonstrate:
  • Aquifer geology
  • Water movement
  • Water pumping
  • Contamination effects on an aquifer

Check out both of these products along with many other fun activities at the Groundwater Foundation’s website!  Share your fun experiences with these two educational kits!
