Teach how fracking works and why it is controversial.
Fracking (hydraulic fracturing) for shale gas has vastly increased the availability of natural gas all over the world. However, this has come at an environmental cost. Show your class how fracking is carried out with our paper model.
First, they make their model of a fracking well using the colourful parts. Then, they use it to work through the steps involved in creating a well, producing natural gas from it and consider the environmental issues (such as earth tremors, pollution, etc) fracking raises.

The model covers: drilling a vertical borehole, horizontal drilling, steel plating the well, cementing the well, the use of plugs (plug and perf), perforating guns, frac liquid (stimulating fluid), extraction of gas and storage and disposal of waste (produced) water.
Your class then use their model to consider the pros and cons of fracking.
