Students participate in the scientific process to investigate what happens to water when it evaporates by observing condensation. In small groups they observe what happens to ice in a cup, and what occurs when they hold a bowl of ice above steam. They record their observations on a condensation data sheet.
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. Questions are supplied to prompt discussion; these questions could also be assigned for written work. At the end of the lesson, class members draw the water cycle, labeling their drawings. A useful online resource link is included.
Fourth graders investigate the concept of condensation and how it is formed. They conduct an experiment and make observations of the chambers. Students record the data and then write down conclusions. The lesson plan includes background information for the teacher to use.
Students explore how temperature affects the processes of evaporation and condensation.
Second graders define condensation and evaporation. They identify and describe the steps in the water cycle. They ask questions to end the lesson.
Fifth graders who are studying water vapor and the condensation process use this worksheet to help them understand the process of condensation. Most of the worksheet is simply a source of information, with a good descriptive paragraph and a diagram. Learners do answer one question regarding the process of condensation.
Students explore how temperature effects the processes of evaporation and condensation and how the air may be polluted  by the evaporation of certain compounds.  In this temperature lesson students complete a lab and a worksheet.
Learners condense information and create a summary paragraph on a video segment. In this brain activity lesson, students watch a video that chronicles an experiment in how the brain responds when making moral decisions. Learners use a graphic organizer to condense the information, then summarize the experiment and conclusions in a paragraph.
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.
Fifth graders explore the major components of the water cycle. They pay close attention to evaporation, condensation, and precipitation. A water cycle kit is set up in the classroom, which learners observe for a couple of days before the lesson actually starts. Then, they engage in a series of activities and view other demonstrations that aptly simulate the concepts covered. An excellent science lesson!
The water cycle is a fascinating process! Introduce young scientists to the water cycle using a colorful instructional 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. As a final activity, learners research and write about evaporation, precipitation, or condensation and share their findings with classmates.
Students define precipitation, evaporation, and condensation as they relate to the water cycle; use a model the water cycle; define the three forms of water as solid (ice), liquid (water), and gas (vapor); and describe water in terms of usage.
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. The final product is a short report. This is a very detailed lesson plan that includes worksheets, resource links, and extension activities.
Students investigate sublimation and deposition using moth balls and toilet bowl freshener. In this sublimation lesson plan, students make a water bath and use two small beakers inside 2 larger beakers with moth balls in one and toilet bowl cleaner in the other. They heat the water bath and observe the solids vaporizing and then condensing back to their original form.
Fourth graders explain and demonstrate the process of condensation, experiment and observe the condensation of water droplets from water vapor to droplets to clouds and infer what variables affect water condensation.
Fifth graders investigate evaporation, condensation, and precipitation. They observe a water cycle kit and record their observations, and examine how water condenses on the outside of a cup. Next, they observe an evaporation demonstration, and create a drawing of the major elements of the water cycle.
Students study the water cycle including condensation, evaporation, and precipitation. In this water cycle lesson plan, students watch a video and access assigned web sites to investigate the water cycle. They complete an experiment with a lamp and ice cubes in a box, to show how the water cycle works.
Delve into the differences among solids, liquids, and gases with this PowerPoint. It is both applicable and attractive. Large, colorful diagrams display the molecular arrangement of each state of matter and their properties are arranged in an easy-to-read chart. Finally, evaporation, condensation, and vaporization are explained with simple animations. Slide seven might be better used later in the presentation, and is easily moved if you are familiar with using PowerPoint.
Students identify how precipitation, evaporation, and condensation are interconnected in the water cycle. They define and use water vocabulary words correctly and use reading resources to develop a list of ten facts about water. Students also record events in sequential order as they complete a graphic organizer on the four parts of the water cycle and write a summary detailing how the water cycle works.
Students compare the room temperature to the temperature of a can of ice water. In this physics lesson, students determine the dew point temperature of a can of ice water by recording the temperatures of the water over time and observing the outside of the can for condensation.
