Students view a video of the water cycle, and make a water cycle baggie. In this water cycle lesson plan, students watch a video, discuss vocabulary, and make a water cycle baggie out of water, salt, ice, and a hot plate.
Present the water cycle to your middle schoolers with this lesson. After an anticipatory set, they participate in a Q & A session about the terms associated with the water cycle: evaporation, transpiration, condensation, and precipitation. Once they have reviewed terms, they go to the computer lab to print a graphic of the water cycle. To wrap-up, learners think about what water has been around to experience. This lesson is straightforward, but not highly interactive or engaging.
Sixth graders recognize that a water cycle is a repeated pattern of change. The lesson plan is designed to help students theorize how the water cycle recycles the earth's water supply. They illustrate and identify the steps in the water cycle.
Students list the nine places on earth where water is found. They define the terms cycle and water cycle. Students explain how energy from the sun powers the movement of water molecules through the water cycle. They name and describe the five processes through which water molecules through which water molecules move through the water cycle.
Students explore the water cycle. In this water cycle activity, students read the book The Magic School Bus Wet All Over and summarize the steps of the water cycle. Students label a picture map of the water cycle.
Students explore the water cycle. In this earth science lesson, students read the book Water Dance by Thomas Locker and use an interactive whiteboard to view the website www.epa.gov/safewater/kids/flash/flash_watercycle.html . Students review the water cycle on the website.
Are you studying the water cycle in your class? If so, consider this lesson that includes several project ideas. After going over vocabulary and forming hypotheses about the water cycle, scientists get into groups and choose 1 of 3 projects to complete. Learners have the option to draw a cartoon of the water cycle, create flashcards, or use a digital camera to take pictures that represent the different parts of the water cycle. Handout links do not function.
Students take an imaginary journey through the water cycle. In this water cycle activity, 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 the stages of the water cycle and evaporation. In this water cycle lesson, students read Water Cycles and color a diagram of the water cycle. Students review related terms and sing a song about the Water Cycle. Students then complete a water cycle experiment to study evaporation.
Second graders discover the components of the water cycle. In this water cycle lesson, 2nd graders view a PowerPoint and bulletin board, read a book, and sing a song to learn more. Students complete a K-W-L chart at the end of the lesson. 
Young scholars explore the water cycle and wade through the facts and vocabulary associated with it.
Third graders explore the different stages of the water cycle.
Young scholars watch a video about the water cycle. They discuss the water cycle and write a story in their science journal about a drop of water going through the water cycle.
Learners examine the water cycle and trace the flow of energy produced. Heat transfer operating in each process of the water cycle is identified. The learner investigates the role of the Sun in the processes.
Young scholars examine the steps of the water cycle and how it influences agriculture. They discuss the different fruits and vegetables grown in their community, and read an article about the water cycle. To wrap up, they create a book illustrating the steps of the water cycle. The article is not included, but it would easily replaced by any article about the water cycle. This would work best for schools located in agricultural areas.
Second graders explore the water cycle and explain how it works. They create a graphic organizer to show the four steps of the water cycle. The entire class will read "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" by Laura Numeroff to explain what a cycle is. Then they will watch a video about the water cycle.
Students complete activities to learn about the water cycle. In this water cycle activity, students complete an experiment to study the water cycle. Students read poems and related books to study the water cycle. Students complete charts, diagrams, and graph activities for the water cycle.
Fourth graders complete activities involving ice cubes, posters, dishes, buckets, and more to illustrate the properties of water. In this water cycle lesson plan, 4th graders illustrate the 3 properties of water, the 4 steps of the water cycle, and explain the 2 changes of state in water.
Students explore the water cycle. In this investigative lesson, students examine the water cycle process. They will record their observations and discuss marine and freshwater ecosystems.
Third graders sing a piggyback song to explore the parts of the water cycle and then illustrate and label the water cycle in their science journals.
