Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Groundwater Activity-Newberry Lab


Students are given a cross-section of a proposed cranberry farm site. They must use the scenario/information given to determine whether the site is good for the farm. Students will use many groundwater concepts as they work though the lab questions.

Learning Targets: 
Students will understand how water can move and flow through the ground.
Students will demonstrate understanding of rocks and materials porosity and permeability.
