New Review Evaporation
This is one in several lessons that explore the relationship between temperature and phase changes of water. After some discussion, elementary physical scientists place wet paper toweling on a hot and a room-temperature water bag and evaluate the evaporation rate.

Evaporation Introductory Lesson
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.

Ashes to Ashes: Using Evaporation Rate to Identify an Unknown Liquid
Learners explore the concept of evaporation rates in this evaporation rates instructional activity. 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.
9th - 12th Science 3 Views 4 Downloads CCSS: Designed
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.

The Water Cycle (Evaporation, Condensation, Precipitation)
The 3 steps of the water cycle, evaporation, condensation, and precipitation, are the focus of this lesson plan. 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.

Evaporation in the Water Cycle
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.

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.

Weathering the Water Cycle: Evaporation
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.

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.

Lose Some Weight- Evaporate!
Students 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.

Dry My Laundry!
Meant to be a pre-field trip lesson plan, this can also serve as a cute and simple activity to use when your little ones are learning about evaporation or surface area. The children cut tiny t-shirts out of paper towel material, wet them, and hang them to dry while tracking the drying time for different sizes.

New Review The Dipping Bird
If you have or want to order the dipping bird demonstration, it is useful for showing how evaporation and changes in the pressure of a closed system cause cyclical motion. After teaching about pressure, consider setting this little guy up and asking your class to try explaining how it works.

Evaporation and 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 plan students complete a lab and a worksheet.

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.

Up, Up and Away
Third graders are presented with the problem of: Do all liquids evaporate at the same rate? The lesson contains adequate background information for the teacher. They participate in a lab experiment in order to test the scientific concept. Observations are made and a summary is written of experimental outcomes in simple terms.
