Edible Earth Parfaits- Groundwater Foundation

This activity uses soda, ice cream, sprinkles, colored sugars, and food coloring to represent the layers of Earth and aquifers under the surface. Students are instructed to “drill a well” with a straw and “pump the well” by sucking on the straw, as they watch the decline in the water table. “Contaminants” are noticeable, and students can also simulate a rain shower by adding more soda to their “aquifer.”
