This resource includes a hands-on science lesson that demonstrates the whole water cycle in a jar and the formation of a cloud! It is really cool! You will only need simple household materials. This resource includes a slide show explaining the water cycle, response pages and interactive notebook flaps and folds.
Also available for purchase as part of a unit Water Cycle Unit
This resource is aligned with NGSS
NGSS 4-ESS2-1. Make observations and/or measurements to provide evidence of the effects of weathering or the rate of erosion by water, ice, wind, or vegetation.
NGSS MS-ESS2-1. Develop a model to describe the cycling of Earth’s materials and the flow of energy that drives this process
NGSS MS-ESS2-4 Develop a model to describe the cycling of water through Earth's systems driven by energy from the sun and the force of gravity.
and Utah SEEd Standard 6.3.1 Develop a model to describe how the cycling of water through Earth’s systems is driven by energy from the Sun, gravitational forces, and density.
This resource is also aligned with Utah Core 4th Grade Standard 1: Students will understand that water changes state as it moves through the water cycle.
