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, 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.
