The Earth's Water Cycle - Environmental Science
Although very short, this video imparts the basic information associated with the water cycle. It might be best-used as a refresher for the teacher to make sure he/she has the most important vocabulary words and their definitions down.
1 min 4th - 8th Science
Lesson 1: Confronting Climate Change: Seeing
Examine the effects of climate change on the water cycle in the first of three lessons using the IBM THINK app, which walks through the process of innovation. Learners look back through history to see which tools might help them study climate change, then perform a controlled experiment simulating the hydrologic cycle under different environmental conditions.
6th - 12th Science CCSS: Adaptable
Take A Spin Around The Water Cycle
Are you looking for a great collection of lessons and activities on the water cycle? This plan is for you! In it, second graders engage in hands-on lessons that cover science, langugage arts, and art as they study the water cycle. Topics covered are the various types of water on Earth, ground water, water vapor, clouds, and precipitation.
Science and Reading: Water Cycle
Students explore Earth science by identifying characteristics of water. In this water cycle instructional activity, students read 10 separate books regarding Earth science and weather patterns. Students analyze the information from the books and complete graphic arts activities, vocabulary quizzes and study questions.
1st - 5th Visual & Performing Arts
The Water Cycle in a Bowl
Students conduct an experiment on the stages of the Water Cycle. In this water cycle lesson, students view the materials needed for the experiment and brainstorm how they relate to the Water Cycle. Students conduct an experiment where they create the Water Cycle in a bowl and observe it for the next few days.
K - 3rd Science
The Water Cycle Experiment
An interesting experiment is filmed in this earth science video. The narrator shows the class the differences between covered soil and bare soil when it comes to retaining rain water. He pours water into two containers, one with soil covered with a layer of powdered horse manure and the other which has soil with no cover on it at all.

Water on the Move in the Great Salt Lake Basin
Fourth graders explore the water cycle as it relates to the Great Salt Lake basin in Utah. They discover how water moves in and out of the Great Salt Lake Basin. They consider what it would be like to take a journey through the water cycle in the Great Salt Lake Water Basin as a water drop!
In this science worksheet, students learn about water cycle, weather, clouds, storms and water resources by completing 8 pages of this full color newsletter. Students read a story, study weather maps, learn to make a rain gauge, learn about violent storms and complete a weather crossword puzzle.
4th - 5th Science
Science: Surviving in Salt Water
Learners read the Adventure Team journal about scuba diving and discuss underwater plants and animals. They discover the meaning of water cycle, erosion,and examine how plants and animals can live in salt water. Students experiment with eggs dropped in glasses of water and salt water to observe how salt helps fish float.
3rd - 5th Science
Go To The Head of the Cloud
Students pretend they are water droplets traveling through the water cycle. Using their text, they discover the steps in the cycle and the different paths water can take. They write a report about their journey through the water cycle and present it to the class.
4th - 8th English Language Arts
Wonders of Weather
Fourth graders complete activities to study weather and the water cycle. In this water cycle lesson, 4th graders observe a demonstration of the three stages of water. Students work in groups to complete a water cycle lab activity. Students visit the given websites to view the water cycle online and sing a related song.
Where in the world is the Hydra Electron?
Walk your class through the journey water takes once it leaves your kitchen sink, all the way through the water cycle. Demonstrations support your lecture. This plan is thoroughly written, but ideally you would follow it up with water quality testing or other activities.
1st - 8th Science
Students connect the water cycle concept with local fresh water availability and consumption. They identify waterways in their own region. Students define, predict, research, and map local watershed areas. They research the positive effects that watersheds have on global warming.
