Water Cycle - Magic School Bus. We watched this one today, and it really connected some dots for Nugget. If you enjoy the show, buy the boxed set on DVD. One of our best resources for fun leaping-off points for learning.
These water cycle posters outline the most important parts of the water cycle, including the 3 states of water. You can print and laminate these posters to display around your classroom or print them out to put in your student's notebooks! Includes: - 3 states of water poster - evaporation - condensation - precipitation - collection - runoff - infiltration - water cycle model
Science games are great ways to increase collaboration to learn facts about weather. These games are best used in groups of 2- 4 people and can be used during a guided practice or review portion of a lesson plan. The only materials needed are the games, dice, and/or a spinner/pencil.
3 of my favorite water cycle, rain cycle experiments. These science experiments are simple to set up and use common household items. http://lessons4littleones.com/2015/04/15/water-cycle-rain-cycle-science-experiments/
The Water Cycle Anchor Chart. Add this mini anchor chart to your student's science journals. The information included will help them remember the names and definitions of the different stages of the water cycle.
