Water is a vital resource; most living things depend on it for survival. But where does our water come from? Most kids might say it comes from the tap, but how does it get there in the first place? With water wells, of course! Throughout history, humans have been using wells to draw up the water naturally present in the earth into our homes.
Give your child the chance to see how a well works by constructing your own! In this activity, make your own well and plot of land with a cardboard tube, sand, and gravel. This is a great kindergarten activity that provides an excellent visual to help kids understand the process behind water wells.
