The Water Cycle (Evaporation, Condensation, Precipitation)

The 3 steps of the water cycle, evaporation, condensation, and precipitation, are the focus of this lesson. After a neat demonstration of rain using hot water, a pie tin, and ice cubes, young scientists observe and discuss the elements of the water cycle. Questions are supplied to prompt discussion; these questions could also be assigned for written work. At the end of the lesson, class members draw the water cycle, labeling their drawings. A useful online resource link is included.
