Product Description

In this hands-on science unit students will explore the importance of water and discover how it cycles through the environment. They will also investigate water as a resource that needs to be conserved, exploring ways to do that in their own local communities. The complete unit features project-based learning, a guided inquiry project, directed lessons, small group projects, vocabulary games, and detailed teacher instructions all along the way.

Included in this hands-on unit is…

  • Student Title Page
  • Teaching Guides - teaching guide included at the beginning of each section. Includes possible verbal prompts and an outline for student learning.
  • Introduction - choose from one of two group (or individual) worksheets to get students thinking about water and the water cycle
  • Vocabulary Games – three hands-on games to introduce students to water cycle vocabulary that will help them build a solid foundation for the rest of the unit

  • Direct Instruction – non-fiction reading and reading comprehension about the water cycle

  • All About Water Lapbook Project – an independent project which asks students to do simple research about the importance of water and write an imaginary journal entry about a day without any water (LA integration)
  • Sources of Water – a small group project where students investigate the difference sources of water on earth and work together to build a Sources of Water mini book reference guide
  • Guided Inquiry – an age-appropriate guided inquiry project that asks students to look for ways to conserve water in their own direct communities. This project can be done using the flipbook template provided.
