Product Description

This lesson is the second lesson in a series for the NGSS Performance Expectation of: 5-ESS2-1. Develop a model using an example to describe ways the geosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and/or atmosphere interact.


There are multiple activities in this lesson including:

  • Observing a teacher demonstration (video here) and drawing a diagram of what they observed.
  • Reading about each main component of the water cycle (evaporation, condensation, and precipitation) and comparing it to what they saw in the demo.
  • Revising models with new information and identifying limitations of models.
  • Practicing with basic questions about the water cycle and the Earth systems that are involved.
  • Creating a new diagram, this time drawing the water cycle on Earth.

This resource is a non-editable PDF and includes 8 pages of student activities, along with a teacher's guide, answer key, and tutorial video (total of 21 pages).


Prior Knowledge: Students should be familiar with the four Earth systems (Hydrosphere, Atmosphere, Biosphere, and Geosphere) before this lesson. An introductory lesson for those can be found here.


Lesson Notes: This lesson focuses on the interaction of the Earth systems and the overall functions of the water cycle. It does not go into detail about phase changes at a molecular level. Students will learn at this level of detail in middle school in the standards MS-PS1-4 and MS-ESS2-4.
