10. Ask the students to explain their observations and draw conclusions about the water cycle.
Timing: 30 minutes
Introduction:
Good morning everyone. Today we are going to learn about the water cycle and how water evaporates and becomes rain. We are going to conduct an experiment to observe the changes that occur in the water cycle. Does anyone have any ideas of different ways water can move?
Background Information:
The water cycle is the process by which water is moved through the environment in the form of water vapor, clouds, precipitation, and runoff. Water evaporates from the surface of the Earth, rises into the atmosphere, and condenses into clouds. The clouds eventually release precipitation, which falls to the Earth’s surface and is either absorbed by the ground or runs off into streams and rivers.

• https://www.teachengineering.org/activities/view/cub_watercycle_lesson01
Closing Activity:
To review the lesson, ask the students to explain the changes that occurred during the experiment and explain how the water cycle works. Ask the students to draw a diagram of the water cycle to summarize the lesson.
