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.
Here is a terrific earth science lesson on the water cycle that's designed for grades two to five. In it, understanding of the water cycle will be enhanced. The lesson focuses primarily on evaporation, and what happens to the water vapor once it's back up in the atmosphere. This fabulous, 8-page plan has everything you need to implement it with your class. Terrific worksheets, web links, and detailed activities are all here for you.
Students 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. Students complete a worksheet and define a list of vocabulary terms as well.
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.
