Study Jams! The Water Cycle

Will tomorrow's soccer game be rained out? That depends on the water cycle. An animated feature explains precipitation, evaporation, transpiration, and condensation with diagrams and dialogue between Sam and RJ as they huddle under a jacket to keep from getting wet! Use this to introduce Next Generation Science Standards and to prepare water wizards for designing a water cycle model.
