Is This Water Clean Enough To Drink?
Young scholars examine the steps of the hydrological cycle; identify surface water and groundwater; determine how surface water is cleaned before being used for drinking, bathing, cooking, and other direct purposes; and model a process used to clean water.
Mini Water Cycle
Students explain the process by which water becomes a cloud. in this cloud formation instructional activity students complete an experiment and write a story to understand condensation and water vapor.
Water Cycle (Grades 3-4)
A guide for covering the water cycle in all aspects of your multi-disciplinary class. Identify and explain natural cycles of the Earth's land, water and atmospheric systems (e.g., rock cycle, water cycle, weather patterns). The ideas here involve building a terrarium and collecting data and many activities to stimulate reflection and personal description work.
Wonderfully Wet Water!
Young scholars define precipitation, evaporation, and condensation as they relate to the water cycle; use a model the water cycle; define the three forms of water as solid (ice), liquid (water), and gas (vapor); and describe water in terms of usage.
Introduction To the Elements of the Water Cycle
The basic elements of the water cycle and how water is recycled through our environment is focused on in this lesson. Your students construct classroom terrariums and learn to make and record observations relating to the water cycle. They create a classroom big book about the water cycle with watercolor illustrations.
Energy From Wind And Moving Water
Second graders investigate air and water as two sources of energy. They determine that wind and moving water are renewable resources that have advantages and disadvantages in their use. Through the design and construction of wind- and water-propelled devices, they identify factors that affect the motion and control of such devices.
Water Cycle (Grades 2-4)
Students demonstrate their understanding of the water cycle and how it effects the environment by graphically depicting and describing the water cycle.
Water Cycle (Hands-On Activity)
Students investigate the water cycle by performing a simple hands-on activity using a plastic container, plastic cup, a rock, and a reflector lamp. They observe the model and measure the water level from time to time.
MEASURING THE DENSITY OF WATER
Students perform an experiment to measure the density of tap water vs. salt water.
The Water Cycle
Fifth graders explore the major components of the water cycle. They pay close attention to evaporation, condensation, and precipitation. A water cycle kit is set up in the classroom, which learners observe for a couple of days before the lesson actually starts. Then, they engage in a series of activities and view other demonstrations that aptly simulate the concepts covered. An excellent science lesson!
Nutrients in Lake Water: Too Much of a Good Thing?!
Students investigate nutrient concentrations in lake water. In this biological communities lesson, students experiment with nitrogen and phosphorus cycles using real life situations. Students discuss watersheds, runoff, and both natural and non-natural sources.
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. You could apply reading standards to this lesson, but it would be most effective in a life sciences unit.
The Impact of Climate Change on Great Lakes Water Levels
Environmental studies stars read an article from the year 2000 about the loss of water from the Great Lakes. They discuss how climate change is contributing to the differences there and elsewhere on the planet. They discuss why water levels are declining in some areas while they are climbing in others. Finally, they do research to find the most current data on water levels. A simple lesson plan that can be a nice addition to your unit on climate change.
Cycling Water Through the Environment
Students explore how the water cycle can take on different forms. In this water in the environment lesson students examine how water travels through the environment and produce fresh water from saltwater.
The Water Cycle
Students discuss what happens water on the sidewalk after the sun comes out. In this water cycle lesson, students further discuss condensation and water vapor. A terrarium is used to demonstrate the water cycle to students.
The Water Cycle
Young scholars 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.
Young scientists explore Earth elements by conducting an experiment. They define water vocabulary terms such as condensation and precipitation. In addition, they conduct a water experiment in which they build a terrarium, so they can observe a smaller scale water cycle in their class.
Water Contamination Mapping Lab
Students are introduced briefly to the Biscayne Bay Ecosystem, observed microbe distributions and water current maps are introduced. They measure water current speeds to predict the movement of pollutants based on the type of the tidal flow.
Amazon Water Cycle Role Play
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.
