Study Jams! The Water Cycle
Will tomorrow's soccer game be rained out? That depends on the water cycle. An animated feature explains precipitation, evaporation, transpiration, and condensation with diagrams and dialogue between Sam and RJ as they huddle under a jacket to keep from getting wet!
4th - 8th Science CCSS: Adaptable
Dry My Laundry!
Meant to be a pre-field trip lesson, 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.
Pre-K - 8th Science
The Water Cycle
The water cycle is a fascinating process! Introduce young scientists to the water cycle using a colorful worksheet. 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.
3rd - 5th Science
Where Did The Water Go?
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.
2nd - 5th Science
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.
4th - 7th Science
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.
1st - 4th Science
What Is the Water Cycle?
Small groups place sand and ice in a covered box, place the box in the sunlight, then observe as evaporation, condensation, and precipitation occur. These models serve as miniature water cycles and demonstrations of the three phases of matter that water is found in: solid, liquid, and gas.
K - 5th Physical Education
Where’s the Water?: Acting Out Science Cycles
Young scientists transform themselves into rivers, oceans, clouds, and drops of water in order to explore the water cycle. After assigning and explaining to students their different roles in the activity, the teacher reads aloud a narrative describing the different stages of the water cycle while the class acts out each event.
2nd - 5th Science CCSS: Adaptable
The evaporation of water and what happens to it as it travels through the water cycle are the focuses of this lesson. The evaporation of water seems like a "magical" process to people of all ages. This lesson takes away the mystery, and shows exactly how the water cycle works.
Incorporate art and poetry into an early elementary science activity about cloud formation. With fun and engaging activities that follow a natural learning progression, youngsters will develop key vocabulary and conceptual understanding about clouds.

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.
6th - 9th Science
Exploring the Water Cycle
The water cycle is one of earth's most easily observable processes, but demonstrating each step within classroom walls can be a challenge. Through a series of videos and quick demonstrations, cover each aspect of the hydrologic cycle in just two days, or, if you have the time, extend the learning beyond the basics with some of the additional lessons or activities created by the brilliant minds at NASA.
6th - 8th Science
The Hydrologic (Water) Cycle
Learners construct a model of the hydrologic cycle, and observe that water is an element of a cycle in the natural environment. They explain how the hydrologic cycle works and why it is important, and compare the hydrologic cycle to other cycles found in nature.
