The Water Cycle
The water cycle is a fascinating process! Introduce young scientists to the water cycle using a colorful activity. Complete with "before reading," "during reading," and "after reading" questions, this presents the water cycle to elementary schoolers through engaging graphics, detailed vocabulary, and a short reading.
3rd - 5th Science
Exploring Moisture on the Outside of a Cold Cup
As a stand-alone or as part of the intended unit, this is a valid investigation of what causes condensation to occur. By limiting the amount of air around a cold cup of water and comparing it to one out in the open, they find that the moisture comes from the surroundings.
3rd - 8th Science
"Lettuce" Learn About the Water Cycle
Young scientists investigate the water cycle through a lettuce seed experiment. For this experiment, learners plant lettuce seeds inside of a ziplock bag in order to create a small greenhouse. They observe condensation and precipitation, and have the option of weighing the ziplock bags and recording their data over time.
1st - 3rd Science
Exploring Moisture on the Outside of a Cold Cup: For Dry Environments
If the area you live in is arid, or the preceding experiment in this unit didn't yield obvious results, use this one in place of it to help reveal where condensation comes from. The mini unit that this is part of a comprehensive investigation of the properties of matter, so make sure to also take a look at the entire teacher's lab guide.
3rd - 8th Science
Water Purification by Evaporation and Condensation
This easy-to-perform demonstration shows students how the water cycle, specifically the processes of condensation and evaporation, purifies Earth's water supply. Just mix up some water, dirt, and gravel in a glass bowl, place a cup in the middle, cover bowl with plastic wrap, and leave it in the sun for a few hours.
4th - 7th Science
The Water Cycle (Evaporation, Condensation, Precipitation)
The 3 steps of the water cycle, evaporation, condensation, and precipitation, are the focus of this lesson. After a neat demonstration of rain using hot water, a pie tin, and ice cubes, young scientists observe and discuss the elements of the water cycle.
1st - 4th Science
What Is the Water Cycle?
Small groups place sand and ice in a covered box, place the box in the sunlight, then observe as evaporation, condensation, and precipitation occur. These models serve as miniature water cycles and demonstrations of the three phases of matter that water is found in: solid, liquid, and gas.
K - 5th Physical Education
Where’s the Water?: Acting Out Science Cycles
Young scientists transform themselves into rivers, oceans, clouds, and drops of water in order to explore the water cycle. After assigning and explaining to students their different roles in the activity, the teacher reads aloud a narrative describing the different stages of the water cycle while the class acts out each event.
2nd - 5th Science CCSS: Adaptable
Condensation in the Classroom
An excellent presentation explains what condensation is, as well as what causes it. There are several thought-provoking activities and discussion questions included in the PowerPoint. Additionally, it focuses on whether or not condensation or evaporation is occurring.
3rd - 4th Science
Study Jams! The Water Cycle
Will tomorrow's soccer game be rained out? That depends on the water cycle. An animated feature explains precipitation, evaporation, transpiration, and condensation with diagrams and dialogue between Sam and RJ as they huddle under a jacket to keep from getting wet!
4th - 8th Science CCSS: Adaptable
It's Clean, Fresh and only Three Billion Years Old - Water!
Students engage in a lesson which explores the wate cycle. They get to see some very entertaining video, do fun hands-on activities and gain a better understanding of evaporation, condensation, precipitation and collection.
7th - 9th Science
The Water Cycle - Main Components
Present the water cycle to your middle schoolers with this instructional activity. After an anticipatory set, they participate in a Q & A session about the terms associated with the water cycle: evaporation, transpiration, condensation, and precipitation.
