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.
Learners explore how humans can pollute the water.  For this water quality lesson students test for water quality and then compare various samples taken from their own personal water supply. 
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.
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. 
Middle schoolers 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 activity students identify ways to conserve water. 
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.
Middle schoolers create their own water cycle in a terrarium. In this water cycle lesson plan, 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.
Learners 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.  Learners utilize pantie hose, a coat hanger, can and humidifier to create a fog net and use it in class.
Students create a postcard.  For 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 lesson, 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.
This easy-to-perform demonstration shows students how the water cycle, specifically the processes of condensation and evaporation, purifies Earth's water supply. Just mix up some water, dirt, and gravel in a glass bowl, place a cup in the middle, cover bowl with plastic wrap, and leave it in the sun for a few hours. When you check back later in the day, the cup will contain clean, clear water. In the upper elementary and middle school grade levels, this demonsteration would make a perfect addition to an earth science unit on the water cycle.
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.
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.
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.
