2 Water Cycle By: Angela Vazzana & Amanda Dobner

3 IL Learning Standard 12.E.2a (Late Elementary) Identify and explain natural cycles of the earths land, water and atmospheric systems (e.g. rock cycle, water cycle, weather patterns) Identify and explain natural cycles of the earths land, water and atmospheric systems (e.g. rock cycle, water cycle, weather patterns)

4 Objectives Name three ways water gets back into oceans and lakes Name three ways water gets back into oceans and lakes Label 4 main parts of the water cycle Label 4 main parts of the water cycle Explain the difference between surface runoff and percolation Explain the difference between surface runoff and percolation

5 Match water cycle vocabulary with the definitions Match water cycle vocabulary with the definitions Explain the importance of the water cycle Explain the importance of the water cycle

6 Vocabulary Condensation-Water vapor in the air gets cold and changes back into liquid, forming clouds. Condensation-Water vapor in the air gets cold and changes back into liquid, forming clouds. Precipitation-occurs when so much water has condensed that the air cannot hold it anymore so the clouds get heavy and water falls back to the earth in the form of rain, hail, sleet or snow. Precipitation-occurs when so much water has condensed that the air cannot hold it anymore so the clouds get heavy and water falls back to the earth in the form of rain, hail, sleet or snow. Evaporation- is when the sun heats up water in rivers or lakes or the ocean and turns it into vapor or steam. The water vapor or steam leaves the river, lake or ocean and goes into the air. Evaporation- is when the sun heats up water in rivers or lakes or the ocean and turns it into vapor or steam. The water vapor or steam leaves the river, lake or ocean and goes into the air.

7 Transpiration-is the process by which plants lose water out of their leaves. Transpiration gives evaporation a bit of a hand in getting the water vapor back up into the air.

Atmosphere-blanket of air surrounding the earth. Atmosphere-blanket of air surrounding the earth. Surface runoff- water that flows down hill into streams, rivers, ponds and lakes. Surface runoff- water that flows down hill into streams, rivers, ponds and lakes.

8 Percolation-Vertical and lateral movements of water through spaces between soil and rock layers. Percolation-Vertical and lateral movements of water through spaces between soil and rock layers. Collection-when water become part of the ground water that plants and animals use to drink or it may run over the soil and collect in the oceans, lakes or rivers where the cycle starts Collection-when water become part of the ground water that plants and animals use to drink or it may run over the soil and collect in the oceans, lakes or rivers where the cycle starts

16 Research Findings The Environmental Protection Agency. (2000). Great Minds! Great Lakes!. Chicago, IL: The Environmental Protection Agency. (2000). Great Minds! Great Lakes!. Chicago, IL: Great Lakes National Program Office. Great Lakes National Program Office. This research gives fun facts about how much water a person uses every day and how they use that water (on average a person uses 168 gallons of water a day). This research article also provides teachers with different activities in reference to different elements of the water cycle and how to incorporate them into other subjects to reinforce learning.

20 Website Review This website is a very good website for kids to use as a resource. It explained the different parts of the water cycle very well and had pictures to go along with its explanations. It would not be a good idea for a teacher to use this website for substantial materials for a lesson since it only provides coloring sheets.

21 This website had a lot of explanations for on the water cycle but did not provide pictures to go along with them. The pictures that the website does provide of the water cycle would be very confusing for kids because the has arrows going all over. Kids would probably become bored with this website due to the lack of color and pictures.

22 an/Watercycle.shtml an/Watercycle.shtml an/Watercycle.shtml an/Watercycle.shtml This website is very kid friendly in that it is brief and to the point, has understandable pictures of the water cycle, and fun facts to interest kids in other things related to the water cycle. For teachers this website provides some worksheets on the water cycle that they could incorporate into their lesson.
