Lesson

Drip, Drip, Drop!

Students will first explore where water is found on Earth and then make predictions about how water travels within Earth’s spheres. Students will explore that phenomena that repeat in predictable patterns can create a cycle. The water cycle follows a sequence, but can begin or end with any part of the cycle. They will discover how the water cycle is driven by the Sun. Students will observe three parts of the water cycle by traveling through centers that highlight these three processes.
