Fourth graders examine the concepts of evaporation and the water cycle. They describe the relationship between heat energy, evaporation and condensation of water on Earth and identify the sun as the source of energy that evaporates water from the surface of Earth.
Fourth graders study the water cycle and the different processes involved, specifically evaporation. They explore the processes of evaporation through hands-on collaborative activities and relate learning to life through experimentation with evaporation.
Learners explore the concept of evaporation rates in this evaporation rates lesson. They will try to identify the chemical that began a fire, perform an experiment where they use the evaporation rates to determine the unknown liquid, and graph the data using their graphing calculator.
Learners analyze physical science by conducting an in-class experiment. In this evaporation lesson, students identify the use of heat to attract water and utilize canning jars, a pitcher of water, and markers to conduct an evaporation experiment. Learners complete a worksheet and define a list of vocabulary terms as well.
Students explain and demonstrate the process of evaporation and conduct an experiment that lead to better understanding of the variables that affect evaporation.
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.
Students study the stages of the water cycle and evaporation. In this water cycle lesson, students read Water Cycles and color a diagram of the water cycle. Students review related terms and sing a song about the Water Cycle. Students then complete a water cycle experiment to study evaporation.
Students review the steps of the scientific method and participate in a three day experiment. They observe water evaporation over time.
First graders explore, analyze, document and study weather and the water cycle. They observe the weather and begin a weather journal. Each student interacts with the concepts of evaporation, condensation and precipitation, clouds, temperature, measuring tools and the effects that weather has on the environment.
Students study the evaporation stage of the water cycle. In this water cycle lesson, students participate in an experiment to study the process of evaporation that uses jars and water. Students complete an observation worksheet for the experiment.
Second graders explore water formations by conducting an experiment in class. In this evaporation lesson, 2nd graders utilize Styrofoam plates, water, sponges and crayons to test an evaporation theory while letting their water soak up in the sun. Students discuss their observations and take an Internet quiz based on their understanding of evaporation.
Students explore how temperature affects the processes of evaporation and condensation.
Third graders generate ideas as to where water goes when it disappears, predict what happen to water left on a plate overnight according to its' location, the evaporation of water on plates and come to a conclusion as to why the amounts of water vary.
Learners determine that some liquids are able to evaporate more readily than others. They create a balance using cups and a ruler to determine which end of a strip dipped in alcohol or water evaporates the fastest, hence loses the most weight.
Students collect and analyze data. In this chemistry lesson, students collect data to measure the amount of evaporation that occurs in alkanes and alcohols. Temperature probes are used to help with evaporation.  
Eighth graders demonstrate how scientific principles can be used to provide resources in an emergency situation.  In this evaporation lesson students view a demonstration on a solar still and see a brief PowerPoint presentation. 
Students calculate evaporation rate using differential equations. In this calculus lesson, students explain how pan evaporation works. They complete a worksheet to sum up the lesson.
High schoolers explore the process of evaporation and the effect of the presence of salt on the process. The water cycle, incorporating evaporation and condensation forms the basis of this lesson plan.
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.
Fifth graders demonstrate the concept of evaporation by conducting their own experiments, recording their observations. They draw conclusions from their results.
