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.

Water in the Geosphere
Through a PowerPoint presentation and the embedded animation and video, earth science enthusiasts find out about the moisture in the soil beneath our feet. In the animation, follow a water molecule on its path through the water cycle. As part of the lesson, learners gather into groups to use thermometers and moisture meters to take measurements.

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.

Water in Earth's Hydrosphere
Environmentalists test stream water for temperature, pH, and turbidity. Each group shares their information and then the class makes an overall evaluation of the water quality. A slide show sets the backdrop for the teaching portion and the wrap-up discussion.

Water Purification by Evaporation and Condensation
This easy-to-perform demonstration shows students how the water cycle, specifically the processes of condensation and evaporation, purifies Earth's water supply. Just mix up some water, dirt, and gravel in a glass bowl, place a cup in the middle, cover bowl with plastic wrap, and leave it in the sun for a few hours.

Modeling Earth's Atmosphere
Life on Earth is made possible by the unique composition of its atmosphere. Working collaboratively, a scale model is created as young scientists learn about the different layers of gas that surround the planet. Cards are included that describe the specific region of the atmosphere that each group is responsible for adding to the model.

The Water Cycle and Climate vs. Weather
Really there are two presentations in this collection of slides. The first is an intermediate-level introduction to the water cycle that even investigates factors affecting soil infiltration. The second is an exploration of the factors affecting climate.

All the Water in the World
In a cross-curricular instructional activity linking math and science, examine the percentages of earth's water supply with your elementary kids using pasta or dixie cups of water. Younger learners focus on identifying local water sources on the globe or a map, then making a pie chart of the earth's water, while older kids graph the data on a bar graph after performing a brief simulation representing the distribution of earth's water.

The Water Cycle and Water Conservation
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.

New Review How Heavy Is Air?
It's amazing how easy it is to forget that every second of our lives we are being pushed on by an uncountable number air molecules. Explore with your class the concept of air pressure and how it affects our bodies, the earth's weather, and the universe as a whole with the help of this short video.

Water in the Atmosphere
A slide show serves as the backdrop for a instructional activity on the moisture in Earth's atmosphere. Through it, mini meteorologists learn about the attributes of the atmosphere and actually use data-collecting weather tools to make observations and measurements.

The Water Cycle
Your class sets up a mini water cycle model to examine the process. Then they watch an animation, following a water molecule through the cycle. A well-developed lab sheet guides learners through the lesson and a PowerPoint presentation supports your direct instruction portion.

Water in the Biosphere
Environmental explorers examine the campus and take note of living organisms. Introduce them to the biosphere and the questions of the day: How much water can be found in the biosphere? A slide show helps you along, and even contains a water cycle animation.

What Is the Water Cycle?
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.

All the Water in the World
Numbers and statistics don't mean nearly as much to middle schoolers as visuals. Create a model of earth's water supply with an aquarium, then follow the directions to remove small portions of the water to represent water in its various places on and around our planet.

Getting to the Core: The Link Between Temperature and Carbon Dioxide
Polar ice samples provide scientists with valuable information about the condition of the atmosphere for hundreds of thousands of years in the past. Of particular interest is the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and its relationship to global warming.

Water, Water Everywhere!
Students brainstorm on ways they use water, and where water comes from. They view video, Down the Drain, to gain specific facts about water use, properties of water, problems of water and the water cycle. They perform a lab activity demonstrating
