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 Simulation Lab-Badwater Landfill


Students will use data from observation wells and a cross-section of the Badwater Landfill Study area to sketch the water table for three different months. Using the sketches from the data students will answer questions about the study area and how groundwater will move throughout the three months.

Learning Targets: 
Students will understand how groundwater moves through the ground.
Students will demonstrate an understanding of how contamination can flow and move through the ground.
