3rd Lab Week
Concept: Water Cycle

Objective: Students will learn the 3 main parts of the Water Cycle and how water moves through it.

Homework: Water Cycle worksheet


Questions of the Week:
•What is evaporation?
•What is condensation?
•What is precipitation?
•What is transpiration?
•What does a drawing of the Water Cycle look like?

Can you fill in the blanks? Video of the Week: Water Cycle

Class Reading: FOSS Science Resources Read pages 219-226. Wonders CA Content Reader Reread pgs 54-55.

How much of the water can we drink on Earth?

The Water Cycle

What temperatures does snow, sleet and freezing rain occur?
Different types of clouds

How can we conserve water at home?
How does acid rain form?
Most of the fresh water in California is used for agriculture.

CA State Science Standards
3a. Students know most of Earth’s water is present as salt water in the oceans, which cover most of Earth’s surface.
3b. Students know when liquid water evaporates, it turns into water vapor in the air and can reappear as a liquid when cooled or as a solid if cooled below the freezing point of water.

3c. Students know water vapor in the air moves from one place to another and can form fog or clouds, which are tiny droplets of water or ice, and can fall to Earth as rain, hail, sleet, or snow. 3d. Students know that the amount of fresh water located in rivers, lakes, underground sources, and glaciers is limited and that its availability can be extended by recycling and decreasing the use of water.
