In this activity (page 11 of the PDF), learners investigate how quickly water moves through various materials. They measure and compare the permeability of gravel, sand, and soil. Although this was created as a post-visit activity for a workshop about earth processes, it also makes an excellent stand alone activity. Less

In this activity about molecular diffusion (located on page 2 of the PDF), learners will make predictions and move molecules of iodine through a seemingly solid plastic sandwich bag. The process of diffusion will be visually indicated by a color change when the iodine reacts with starch inside the bag. Information in the resource explains how this activity relates to nanoparticles and research. Related to linked video, DragonflyTV Nano: Nanosilver. Less

In this activity, students investigate how different riparian ground covers, such as grass and pavement, affect river flooding. They learn about permeable and impermeable materials through the measurement how much water is absorbed by several different household materials in a model riverbed. Students use what they learn to make recommendations for engineers developing permeable pavement. Also, they consider several different limitations for design in the context of a small community.

In this lesson, students explore how groundwater contamination can spread through aquifers by participating in a groundwater plume simulation. Students will consider where they would look to determine the source of groundwater contamination and where they could turn for assistance; explore the possible contamination of Nevada groundwater by a major nuclear test site by reading and discussing, "Concerns Arise Over Aquifer Near Nuclear Test Site"; investigate how underground contamination travels in plumes by participating in a lab simulation; and write a persuasive essay from the point of view of a Nevada resident living close to the groundwater contamination source discussed in the featured article.

This is an activity (located on page 3 of the PDF) about diffusion of small molecules across cell membranes. Learners will use gelatin to represent a cell and dye to represent molecules to model how small molecules such as nanoparticles can penetrate living environments. Relates to linked video, DragonflyTV: Nanosilver. Less

Learners design their own experiment to explore the permeability of different materials such as soil, sand, gravel, and marbles. They will also be introduced to the basic concepts of building design, landscape architecture, and environmental pollutant transport. As an extension activity, learners will discuss the importance of proper drainage and urban design issues in sensitive environments such as coastal areas. Less
