This is an experiment I use in my class every year. It serves two purposes. It visually shows the students each step of the water cycle (evidence of evaporation is the water droplets-condensation-on the plastic wrap and sides of the container, precipitation is proved by the water collection in the small container) and answers the question my students always ask me ("Does ocean water go through the water cycle?-I never drink or use salt water!") using a clear container in the classroom. The handout goes over the materials needed, steps to set up the experiment, hypothesis, recording observations, and generating conclusions (both right there thoughts and inferring about real world scenarios). Again and again, they love this experiment and reference it throughout the unit and as we review over the course of the year. I hope your class loves it as much as mine does!
