Students explore the weather system by analyzing water properties. In this precipitation 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.
Students identify the different stages in the water cycle. In this earth science lesson plan, students calculate the residence time of water in oceans using a mathematical formula. They explain how this cycle regulates the Earth's climate.
Pupils 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 lesson students make a cloud and create evaporation.
In this seasons and weather worksheet, students take notes in a graphic organizer as they read several passages, then answer six comprehension questions.
Fifth graders keep a weather journal. In this weather lesson, 5th graders define types of weather, summarize types of weather, and keep a weather journal.
In this English vocabulary skills instructional activity, 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 instructional 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.
Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol provides the text for a formative assessment exercise designed for middle schoolers. Patterned on the AP exam, the packet includes a treasure trove of materials including answer keys, rationales, metadata, and attributes for each question, sample essays, and scoring guides for each essay prompt. The three types of assessments included (close reading multiple choice, editing multiple choice, and essay response) are designed to build the skills of learners and give feedback to instructors. Well worth a place in your curriculum library.
In this winter precipitation activity, students read the paragraph about snowflakes and visualize as they read. Students draw and label important information in the space below the paragraph.
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.
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 series on the hydrologic cycle, repeating it throughout the unit to reinforce children's understanding of the process.
Such a great resource and perfect for learners in Kindergarten through third grade. The class will discuss cloud types and formation, and then they'll get outside and draw as they observe the clouds they see. They'll need to take note of the weather and consider how those two things affect each other. They'll use the cloud sketches to create a series of cloudy landscape paintings that reflect their scientific observations. A rubric, examples, images, and worksheets are all included.
In this winter precipitation worksheet, students read the paragraphs about winter precipitation. Students then draw a label the important information in the provided space about each paragraph. Students also complete a science demonstration about condensation.
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 lesson is part of a unit that provides tremendous teacher resources!
Young ecologists can practice their critical reading skills while learning about the water cycle, the impacts humans can have on the earth's water supply, and why we have a responsibility to our planet to preserve this precious resource. Intended as background information for a teacher, the excerpt could be an excellent supplement for higher-level readers.
