WARM UP What is the water cycle? Explain what you know. If you don’t know what it is, tell me what you think it might be.
Each Person Should Have 1: Sparkly Blue Bead Gray BeadWhite Bead Yellow Bead Sparkly Clear Bead Sparkly Green Bead Clear Bead Sparkly Turquoise Bead Sparkly Brown Bead Piece of String
Take The String Knot part way up the string to help hold the beads on. Take your beads and string them on the bracelet in any order you choose Knot the other end near the last bead Tie your bracelet together and wear!
The Beads Each bead represents a part of the water cycle. Let’s look at what each one can tell us about the water cycle.
Yellow - Sun The sun is the source of all energy on Earth and powers the water cycle
Clear – Water Vapor The part of the water cycle where water is suspended in the air or is steam and humidity Why did we use a clear bead to represent the water vapor?
Gray - Clouds When water vapor condenses but is still in the air, we call it a cloud Why did we use a gray bead to represent clouds?
Sparkling Clear - Rain Moisture from clouds falls to Earth as a liquid Why do you think we used a sparkling clear bead to represent rain?
White - Snow Moisture falling in the frozen state Why did we use a white bead to represent snow?
Sparkling Turquoise - Oceans The Earth’s weather factory. Moisture evaporates from the oceans by the sun’s heat and is carried around the Earth by winds Why did we use a sparkling turquoise bead to represent the oceans?
Sparkling Blue - Lakes Lakes collect water from streams and rivers and also evaporate water into the atmosphere Why did we use a sparkling blue bead to represent lakes?
Sparkling Brown – Puddles Rain water collects in low spots, streets, and sidewalks. Puddles evaporate or go into storm drains. Why do you think we used a sparkling brown bead to represent puddles?
Sparkling Green – Plants Plants take in water through roots and evaporate water into the atmosphere through leaves – a process called transpiration Why did we use a sparkling green bead to represent plants?
Reflect Now that you know what each bead on your bracelet represents, please explain your water cycle on your own paper. Write in complete sentences and mention the color of each bead you are discussing. You should have at least nine sentences when you are finished. Now, draw one picture that includes all the processes discussed in your bracelet.
