Each water cycle experiment is easy to set up and can be done as a whole group or in small groups. The coordinating pages test students' understanding of the water cycle vocabulary words (collection, evaporation, condensation, precipitation) and how the experiment demonstrated each stage of the water cycle.
Several of the experiment pages can be completed using the free app Pic Collage or Pic Kids for easy technology integration.
Please note that the water cycle experiments require the following materials that are NOT included in this resource: large bowl, mug or small cup, plastic wrap, string or large rubber band, water, Ziploc baggie, tape, blue food coloring, marker, shaving cream, small glass, medium glass, straw or eye dropper.
The water cycle wheel craftivity gives students a visual representation of the water cycle and shows that it repeats over and over again.
Also includes time-saving bonus activities (book list, math activity, song, 4 crafts)!
