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.

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.

New Review From Gas to Liquid to Solid
From gas to liquid condensation to solid frost, water undergoes phase changes before students' eyes! Using ice, salt, water, and a metal can, they set up an investigation that can be used in a physical science setting, or as part of a weather unit.

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.

New Review 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.

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.

"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.

The Water Cycle
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.

Rain, Rain, Where Did You Go?
Young scholars study the water cycle including condensation, evaporation, and precipitation. In this water cycle lesson, 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.

I Just Drank George Washington's Water!
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.

Dew Point Temperature
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.
