Sixth Grade Science students study our water

Thanks to Barbara Ellis for her description of this engaging learning opportunity:
On April 5th, 6th and 7th,  sixth grades students were visited by Kat Munson of the Cumberland County Soil and Water Conservation District, as well as a representative from the Yarmouth Water District. The goal of this visit was for students to understand that their drinking water comes from groundwater, to learn the characteristics of North Yarmouth's drinking water, and to understand the surface-groundwater connection and the role humans play in this system. They constructed a model that shows what happens when pollutants introduced at the surface make their way into the groundwater.  It was a wonderful, educational , hands-on experience for our budding young scientists!
