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 analyze physical science by conducting an in-class experiment. In this evaporation lesson plan, 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.
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!
Here is a terrific earth science instructional activity on the water cycle that's designed for grades two to five. In it, understanding of the water cycle will be enhanced. The instructional activity 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.
High schoolers explore the concept of evaporation rates. In this evaporation rates lesson, students try to identify the chemical that began a fire. High schoolers perform an experiment where they use the evaporation rates to determine the unknown liquid. Students graph the data using their graphing calculator.
Students study the stages of the water cycle and evaporation. In this water cycle instructional activity, 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.
Second graders explore water formations by conducting an experiment in class. In this evaporation instructional activity, 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.
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.
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.
