This resource provides a hands-on lesson in which the students can see the whole water cycle in a baggie! The second lesson includes an informational text passage and response pages. The passage explains the water cycle and gives the students practice using their reading informational text skills. Both lessons include clever interactive notebook flaps and folds. There is also a slide show included that explains the water cycle process.
