How the well was dug in Water in our life – Class 6 Science Experiment

Chapter Name: Water in our life

Activity Name: How the well was dug in Water in our life

Activity Description:

The experiment aims to understand the process of digging a well and estimate the approximate volume of water in a well. Additionally, information will be gathered from the elders in a nearby village regarding the water level in the well over the years.

Required Items:

  1. Notebook
  2. Pen/pencil
  3. Measuring tape (optional)

Step by Step Procedure:

  1. Visit a nearby village where there is a well used for drinking water.
  2. Observe the well closely and make notes about its structure, depth, and any visible markings.
  3. Approach the elders in the village and politely request their assistance in gathering information about the well.
  4. Ask the elders about the approximate volume of water in the well. They might provide an estimation based on their knowledge or experience.
  5. Inquire about the water level in the well over the years. Ask if the water level has remained constant or if there have been noticeable changes.
  6. Record the information provided by the elders in your notebook, including the estimated volume of water and any observations about water level fluctuations.
  7. If possible, measure the depth of the well using a measuring tape. Note down this measurement as well.
  8. Ask the elders about the process of digging the well. Inquire if they have any knowledge about the equipment or techniques used.
  9. Listen carefully and take detailed notes of the well-digging process described by the elders.
  10. Thank the elders for their time and information.

Experiment Observations:

  • Structure and depth of the well: Note down any observations about the well’s physical appearance, such as its shape, size, and depth.
  • Volume of water: Record the approximate estimation of the water volume provided by the elders.
  • Water level changes: Note any information about the water level in the well over the years. Determine if the water level has been constant or if there have been noticeable fluctuations.


  • Respect the privacy and time of the villagers. Seek permission before approaching them for information.
  • Be polite and considerate while interacting with the elders. Show appreciation for their knowledge and experiences.
  • Do not enter private property or areas where access is restricted without proper permission.

Lesson Learnt from Experiment:

This experiment helps to gain insights into the process of digging a well and understanding the approximate volume of water it can hold. It also highlights the importance of water conservation and monitoring the water level in wells over time to ensure a sustainable water supply.
