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.

Water in the Atmosphere
A slide show serves as the backdrop for a lesson 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.

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 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.

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 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.

The Water Planet
Students use NASA photographs and hands-on activities to compare the amounts of land and water on our planet. They discover that the world has five oceans and that they cover seventy percent of Earth's surface. Students learn how this affects the entire Earth system.

Water Cycle Stories
Students create water cycle stories. In this water cycle lesson, students review the parts of the water cycle. They create a story that describes the journey of a water molecule as it makes its way through the cycle and into different phases.

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 lesson 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.

Water Cycle Stories
Students explore the water cycle. In this water cycle lesson, students simulate the water cycle by placing an ice cube in a Ziploc bag and observing the changes which occur over time. Students record the mass of the Ziploc bag and record their findings.

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 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.

What Makes Water Special?
Get close up and personal with a drop of water to discover how the polarity of its molecules affect its behavior. Elementary hydrologists split and combine water droplets, and also compare them to drops of oil. Much neater than placing a piece of wax paper over the graph paper is inserting a piece of graph paper into a resealable plastic bag and zipping it shut.

What Dissolves in Water?
One of water's claims to fame is as the universal solvent. Young physical scientists experiment to discover which materials dissolve in this special compound. You could never be more prepared for teaching this lesson than by using this resource; it comes with a video of teaching tips, a well-written lesson plan, handouts, and math and reading supplements to add cross-curricular components.

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.
