Students develop a better understanding of the need to conserve our renewable resources.  In this water cycle lesson students take notes, complete a guide sheet and illustrate the water cycle. 
Students participate in a role play where they play clouds, the ocean, rain drops, and more in order to learn about the water cycle. In this water cycle lesson plan, students have discussions and learn vocabulary.
Students explore the different properties of water. They experimenting with different activities, each one explaining a different property of water. Students read an article "Small, Ues, But Might: The Molecule Called Water." and then complete the experiments.
Young scholars explore how humans can pollute the water.  In this water quality activity students test for water quality and then compare various samples taken from their own personal water supply. 
Students recognize that all of the water on earth cannot be used for drinking and that the percentage of ground and surface water is a small percentage.  In this water lesson students identify ways to conserve water. 
Learners analyze water samples to see the contaminants and then use the Internet to find the sources of the contamination.  In this investigative water instructional activity students analyze water and work together to solve the mystery of contaminants.
Students create their own water cycle in a terrarium. In this water cycle lesson, students research the water cycle and complete a worksheet using the Internet. They create a water cycle of their own in a jar with stones, sand, soil, and seeds or plants.
Students investigate the different forms of water by turning fog into drinkable water.  In this harvesting lesson, students discuss and observe photographs of fog and why it is essential for some countries to collect water from fog using simple tools.  Students utilize pantie hose, a coat hanger, can and humidifier to create a fog net and use it in class.
As the title implies, this is a list of vocabulary terms relating to water monitoring. If your ecology class is learning about how to test water quality, this will be an appropriate reference sheet for them. As a bonus, if you live in Texas near the Little Bear Creek watershed, you will find a topographic map of the area. 
Students create a postcard.  In this landscape lesson, students watch a video about Earth's waters and review the sites mentioned in the video.  Students then create a postcard displaying information collected from a chosen website.
Students study the water cycle. In this water cycle instructional activity, students examine how the water cycle works, what its functions are, and how to diagram it.
Students explore the need for water conservation. In this water conservation lesson, students use videos for discussion about water conservation and the benefits and drawbacks of different water management techniques. They explore strategies for conserving water at home.
Students research how water played an important role in US history. In this social studies lesson, students make a mock newscast from one of the events they researched. They present their newscast to the class. 
Discuss the availability of clean, plentiful water and the causes of water pollution. In groups, sixth graders discuss problem-solving methods for keeping water clean. They explore the function of water treatment plants and perform experiments to predict pollutants that can be stopped by filtration. You could apply reading standards to this lesson, but it would be most effective in a life sciences unit.
Learners construct a model of the hydrologic cycle, and observe that water is an element of a cycle in the natural environment. They explain how the hydrologic cycle works and why it is important, and compare the hydrologic cycle to other cycles found in nature. This is one of the most thoroughly thought-through, one-period lesson plans I've ever come across!
Meteorology learners explore the weight of air, layers of the atmosphere, and air pressure action through a series of discussions, demonstrations, and hands-on group activities. Enough discussion prompts, background information, student handouts, and internet resources are provided to build a complete atmosphere mini-unit.
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!
Students discuss flooding and its causes. They view a Powerpoint presentation about floods and prevention methods. After creating a model with clay and pans, they investigate river behavior in various terrains with different amounts of water. They simulate real world conditions by modifying the riverbed with levees.
Students build a model to simulate parts of the water cycle. They recognize and explain the essential elements of the water cycle.
Students discover the techniques meteorologists use to examine the atmosphere. In groups, they build their own weather station and observe the various weather conditions. They identify the types of weather patterns that allow the meteorologists to make forecasts.
