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. As a final activity, learners research and write about evaporation, precipitation, or condensation and share their findings with classmates.
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. This is one of the most thoroughly thought-through, one-period lesson plans I've ever come across!
Investigate facts about water by showing this PowerPoint! The slideshow addresses ways we use water, why it is important and how much of it we have on earth. There are beautifully illustrated slides along with clear sentences that provide explanations on why water is important.
