Students identify the different stages in the water cycle. In this earth science instructional activity, students calculate the residence time of water in oceans using a mathematical formula. They explain how this cycle regulates the Earth's climate.
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.
Students study how clouds form, what different types there are and what rain is.  In this atmospheric activity students make a cloud and create evaporation.
In this seasons and weather instructional activity, students take notes in a graphic organizer as they read several passages, then answer six comprehension questions.
In this English vocabulary skills worksheet, students answer 6 multiple choice questions which require students to examine the relationships among words.
Students participate in a role play where they play clouds, the ocean, rain drops, and more in order to learn about the water cycle. In this water cycle lesson plan, students have discussions and learn vocabulary.
Investigate seasons and weather through this text-companion worksheet. Learners read about changing seasons and what causes weather patterns, taking notes and answering 6 short-answer comprehension questions as they read the selection. A graphic organizer is provided for notes, however it seems students may be expected to copy it into a notebook, since it is quite small. Vocabulary words are defined on the side. Intended for use with the McDougal Littell World Geography text.
Students examine Earth science by participating in a water experiment. In this water cycle activity, students identify the importance of the sun and evaporation in the cycle of water. Students utilize an aquarium, plastic wrap, water and a lamp to conduct an evaporation experiment.
Students conduct Internet research to determine what causes one of the five forms of precipitation to develop. Students work in groups to research a particular type of precipitation and what atmospheric conditions cause that form of precipitation. Students create PowerPoint presentations of their findings.
Students examine the weather conditions throughout the globe. As a class, they discover the impact of snow on various types of crops. In groups, they participate in an experiment in which they form raindrops and calculate the difference between five centimeters of snow and the same amount of rain.
Fifth graders write a journal about the different kinds of weather. For example, they can include hurricanes, tornadoes, sleet, snow, and other types of weather. They then write definitions of different types of weather and a short summary of them.
Go beyond the typical earthquake drill and prepare your learners to become proactive responders in the event of an emergency. From blackouts and droughts to thunderstorms and extreme cold, your class members will discover how disasters happen and the role geography plays, as well as how they can help their communities prepare for and respond to disasters.
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. Perform this engaging activity as an introduction to a lesson plan series on the hydrologic cycle, repeating it throughout the unit to reinforce children's understanding of the process.
Preparation is key when it comes to dealing with disasters. Starting with a lesson series centered around researching the facts about different types of emergencies, children go on to create preparedness plans and learn how to respond in actual emergency situations.
What is an emergency, why is preparing for one important, and how can your pupils help others prepare for an emergency? Answer these questions and more with a short unit. Learners will participate in a variety of collaborative, inquiry-based, and hands-on activities to learn about disaster preparedness. Your charges will feel confident in their abilities to handle emergency situations after completing this unit and their own emergency preparedness graphic novels!
Examine the perspectives, cultural clashes, and historical implications of Indian removal policies in the United States during the 1930s. Your young historians will closely examine primary sources and engage in insightful discussions on such topics as Andrew Jackson's Indian Removal Act and the Trail of Tears.

Pairs conduct an Internet search for a series of primary and secondary sources pertaining to the forced removal of the Cherokee Nation from Georgia. Armed with information gathered, teams then debate whether the Indian Removal Act was justified and if it was constitutional.
Beginning with an exercise of favoritism to engage learners, progressing through image and primary source analysis of the Nineteenth Amendment and the Seneca Falls Declaration, and culminating in a look at a political cartoon called Election Day, your learners will get up close and personal with the advocacy events leading up to the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment.
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.  If you can afford it, purchase a few plastic shoebox-sized tubs rather than trying to use aluminum-foil-lined cardboard boxes. The foil is certain to leak and soak the cardboard leading you to need to find a new set of boxes each school year, whereas plastic tubs can be reused. This instructional activity is part of a unit that provides tremendous teacher resources!
