Exploring the Water Cycle
The water cycle is one of earth's most easily observable processes, but demonstrating each step within classroom walls can be a challenge. Through a series of videos and quick demonstrations, cover each aspect of the hydrologic cycle in just two days, or, if you have the time, extend the learning beyond the basics with some of the additional lessons or activities created by the brilliant minds at NASA.

Where’s the Water?: Acting Out Science Cycles
Young scientists transform themselves into rivers, oceans, clouds, and drops of water in order to explore the water cycle. After assigning and explaining to young scholars 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.

"Lettuce" Learn About the Water Cycle
Young scientists investigate the water cycle through a lettuce seed experiment. For this experiment, learners plant lettuce seeds inside of a ziplock bag in order to create a small greenhouse. They observe condensation and precipitation, and have the option of weighing the ziplock bags and recording their data over time.
