Lesson Plan

Cycling Water Through the Environment:

Water plays a major role in the planet's weather and climate, as well as nourishes people, plants, and animals; it is a crucial ingredient for life on Earth. Earth's natural mechanism for transporting, cleansing, and recycling water between the surface and the atmosphere is referred to as the water cycle. This lesson has students recognize water's different forms and where it exists in the environment. The class will discuss and perform experiments, modeling the water cycle and exploring how salt water can be distilled into fresh water.

The Hydrologic Cycle:

The hydrologic cycle describes how water is perpetually recycled, continuously traveling between Earth's surface and the atmosphere through five main processes: condensation, precipitation, infiltration, runoff, and evapotranspiration. This NASA-adapted interactive resource explores the steps of the water cycle in a computer model.
