Water Cycles Lesson Plan

The water cycle is the continuous movement of water from ocean to air and back to ocean. When you are teaching students about the water cycle, observation is an important part of the process. When students have the opportunity to observe the water cycle, they can ask questions, gather information, and come to conclusions. In this particular lesson, students will observe a water cycle, and through observation, they will be able to identify why it rains. The lesson materials include: Ziploc bags, water, and food coloring, and tape. Through their process of observation, students are able to see droplets of water forming on the bags as time passes. The students discuss what they see as a class.
