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.
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.
Ashes to Ashes: Using Evaporation Rate to Identify an Unknown Liquid
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.
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.
Students explain and demonstrate the process of evaporation and conduct an experiment that lead to better understanding of the variables that affect evaporation.
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. Questions are supplied to prompt discussion; these questions could also be assigned for written work. At the end of the lesson plan, class members draw the water cycle, labeling their drawings. A useful online resource link is included.
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. 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.
Evaporation in the Water Cycle
Students study the stages of the water cycle and evaporation. In this water cycle lesson plan, 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 instructional activity, students participate in an experiment to study the process of evaporation that uses jars and water. Students complete an observation worksheet for the experiment.
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. Students discuss their observations and take an Internet quiz based on their understanding of evaporation.
Evaporation and Condensation
Learners 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.
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.
Evaporation of Alcohols Vernier Data-Collection Activity
Learners collect and analyze data. In this chemistry instructional activity, students collect data to measure the amount of evaporation that occurs in alkanes and alcohols. Temperature probes are used to help with evaporation.
Survival Science: How Evaporation and Condensation Can Save Your Life!
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.
New! 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. Note that there are no lab sheets provided; consider having older learners draw up a data table prior to experimenting. Another variation for this experiment would be to compare different types of same-sized paper towel t-shirts.
Dimming The Sun
Students review the meanings of global warming and global dimming. While watching a video, they take notes on different aspects of the issue. In groups, they develop a list on what can be done to reduce global dimming. They participate in an experiment which they measure and record weather conditions for a specific amount of time. To end the lesson, they determine the various factors that affect evaporation.
How Much Salt is in the Gsl Water?
Fourth graders study the water cycle and the different processes that are involved, like precipitation, evaporation, etc. They conduct an experiment observing the water cycle in action and write a hypothesis, observations and conclusions. They draw a picture that shows how the water cycle works.
