Sixth graders have studied the water cycle in science and we made a connection with an experiment that the students recently built and began to test. We engineered water tables that would allow us to test erosion, dams and water movement. In the photos below we were testing how a natural dam would react when it is stressed to the limits with imminent failure. Students reactions to the experiment were always great as they were so excited and anxious for when it would fail and how it would fail. Only more fun to come with our new water tables.
