The Water Cycle

In our The Water Cycle lesson plan, students learn about the steps of the water cycle, vocabulary related to the water cycle, and the ways in which the water cycle affects the planet day-to-day.

Our The Water Cycle lesson plan guides students through the water cycle process and enables them to define and accurately explain each of the steps of the Earth’s water cycle. During this lesson, students are asked to create a 2D model of the water cycle, using a checklist to make sure they have included every step. Students are also asked to complete a crossword puzzle using lesson vocabulary, demonstrating their understanding of the terms and definitions needed for this lesson.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify the water cycle process, plus define and accurately explain each of the steps of the Earth’s water cycle.

    Water Cycle

    This review of the water cycle served as an excellent source to differentiate my reading levels for my students and still provided quality content. Thanks so much for all you do, Clarendon Learning!

    This exercise was concise with a practical activity that was easy for my 7 year old do independently given the criteria to follow.

    The Water Cycle

    The item/lesson was a good resource for online learning. My students accessed it on Google Classroom and were able to work on it using Kami.

    Great Lesson!

    The lesson is well thought out and includes all of the components of the water cycle through 6th grade standards. Love that the lesson has handouts and questions to use with your students.
