Students engage in a lesson which explores the wate cycle. They get to see some very entertaining video, do fun hands-on activities and gain a better understanding of evaporation, condensation, precipitation and collection.
The Water Cycle
The water cycle is a fascinating process! Introduce young scientists to the water cycle using a colorful instructional activity. 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.
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. This is one of the most thoroughly thought-through, one-period lesson plans I've ever come across!

Students are challenged to write a riddle using a vocabulary word. They answer two questions about a paragraph included on the worksheet.
Rain and Rainbows
Students explore the weather system by analyzing water properties. In this precipitation instructional activity, students review weather related vocabulary terms and discuss how rainbows are created by light hitting droplets at the right time. Students conduct a rainbow experiment by utilizing an electric kettle, cotton balls, mirrors and other household objects.
Learners identify the different stages in the water cycle. In this earth science lesson, students calculate the residence time of water in oceans using a mathematical formula. They explain how this cycle regulates the Earth's climate.
Water Cycle Adventure
Students take an imaginary journey through the water cycle. In this water cycle lesson, students identify the various parts of the water cycle, listen while their teacher leads them on an imaginary journey through the water cycle, and discuss what they learned.
Clouds and Rain
Students study how clouds form, what different types there are and what rain is. In this atmospheric lesson students make a cloud and create evaporation.
