Product Details

When your students get a glass of water from a faucet, do they stop to wonder where in the world that water has been? Send your students on an adventure where they follow a drop of water navigating the water cycle. This interactive exercise helps students understand that the seemingly simple cycle of evaporation, condensation, and precipitation is much more complex. A simple roll of a specially-designed colored die at each “water cycle station” determines the next step and increases student awareness of the various stores and flows involved in hydrologic processes. After traveling through the water cycle, students compare and contrast their experiences, and conclude that no two adventures are alike!Super Value Kit is complete for 30 students working individually. All materials are reusable.

Performance Expectations

MS-PS1-4. Develop a model that predicts and describes changes in particle motion, temperature, and state of a pure substance when thermal energy is added or removed.
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.
HS-PS1-4. Develop a model to illustrate that the release or absorption of energy from a chemical reaction system depends upon the changes in total bond energy.
HS-ESS2-5. Plan and conduct an investigation of the properties of water and its effects on Earth materials and surface processes.
