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.
Learners 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. 
Students explore the causes of water pollution. In this environmental lesson, students conduct experiments with natural filtration systems.
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 analyze water samples to see the contaminants and then use the Internet to find the sources of the contamination.  In this investigative water lesson students analyze water and work together to solve the mystery of contaminants.
Learners 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.
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.
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 instructional activity that can be a nice addition to your unit on climate change.
Pupils study the water cycle. In this water cycle lesson, students examine how the water cycle works, what its functions are, and how to diagram it.
Students examine the various stages of the water cycle. In groups, they complete a hands-on activity by creating model water cycle. Students design posters representing each of the seven stages of the water cycle.
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. 
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.
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.
Learners 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.
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 build a model to simulate parts of the water cycle. They recognize and explain the essential elements of the water cycle.
Earth science explorers act as hydrologists as they research local issues involving water quality. In this hydrology instructional activity, 7th graders research a local water quality problem. They test the water quality of a local body of water and analyze their data. They conduct a video research conference with other students to discuss water quality issues.
