Are You Thirsty? The Effects of Pollution on Drinking Water
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.

Changing Planet: Permafrost Gas Leak
Pair earth scientists up to use an amazing online arctic portal mapping tool and Google Earth to analyze permafrost changes. They compare changes to data on atmospheric concentrations of methane to see if there is a correlation. Then they experiment with temperature and gas concentrations.
7th - 12th Science
Another A+ physics presentation, this one on gases, is brought to you by the Nevada Joint Union High School District. Cohesive, compact, and even cute, this collection of slides leads viewers through an exploration of the properties and behavior of gases, atmospheric pressure, the use of Boyle's law and Bernoulli's principle, and ends with a brief introduction to plasma.

Watershed Works: Unit 3
Geology whizzes observe the effects of change within a model of a watershed. They place replica waste dumps within the models and note the path that the waste takes as water passes through. This detailed lesson plan provides teacher narrative, instructions for building the watershed model, discussion questions, and more!
6th - 8th Science
How Much Water is Available in the Atmosphere for Precipitation?
Students explore the relationship between the amount of water in the atmosphere available for precipitation and the actual precipitation observed by satellite. They examine seasonal changes in precipitation. They practice using Internet resources.
7th - 12th Social Studies & History
Blocking the Sun: Earth's External Heat Engine and the Earth's Atmosphere
Using a detailed worksheet, advanced earth science learners examine radiation data and graphs. They compare the solar energy reaching different latitudes and the effects of the atmosphere on insolation. The exercises are comprehensive. The graphs and diagrams on the worksheets are a little lighter than the typed font, so you might have to explain if they are hard to read.
8th - 12th Science
Water Cycle Reading and Writing
Here is a great way to get pupils to express a scientific concept in a fun way. After hearing the story of Walter the Water drop and learning facts about the water cycle, the class will write a creative expository piece describing what they have learned.

Where's the Water? Stream Side Science
After a whole-class discussion of water reservoirs, ten liters of water are given to each lab group to represent Earth's total amount of water. They divide the water into smaller containers, each representing one of those reservoirs. The goal is to estimate the percentage of Earth's total water that is contained in each.
6th - 9th Science
The Water Cycle
An inventive and interesting instructional activity on the water cycle (and other cycles associated with it), is here for you. After doing a well-designed hands-on inquiry in class, learners also identify organisms and processes that are involved in the nitrogen cycle and the carbon cycle.
The Properties of Water: "Dead Or Alive"
Students study the water cycle and create a booklet entitled: "Discover the Wonder of Water" They observe and record data regarding evaporation, condensation, and precipitation and how water moves from a solid to a liquid to a gas. They also create a mini water cycle.
2nd - 4th Science
Amounts of Dissolved Oxygen in Various Bodies of Water
Students test water to determine the dissolved oxygen content while displaying the proper use of testing instruments while visiting water testing sites. They determine if the amount of dissolved oxygen is appropriate for the tested water. Next, they interpret the data that is collected on worksheets and determine what could skew the results.
11th - 12th Science
Winter Wonderland - Winter Olympics and the Water Cycle
After a concise introduction to the water cycle, junior meteorologists access NOAA's average snowfall data. They choose a city to examine in terms of precipitation. Then they look at historical snowfall data and use it to predict snow supply for the Winter Olympics.
5th - 7th Science
WATER HERE AND THERE
Introduce the topic of water conservation with a little drama. Dressed as snowflakes, hail stones, or rain drops class members dramatize the events in a narration of the water cycle. The series of lessons that follow focus on conservation techniques, hot springs and geysers, ground water, water pollution, and soil types.
