The Water Cycle - Main Components

Present the water cycle to your middle schoolers with this lesson. After an anticipatory set, they participate in a Q & A session about the terms associated with the water cycle: evaporation, transpiration, condensation, and precipitation. Once they have reviewed terms, they go to the computer lab to print a graphic of the water cycle. To wrap-up, learners think about what water has been around to experience. This lesson is straightforward, but not highly interactive or engaging.
