In class we finished up the Dump and Clump and went outside to think about where water goes on campus, related to the water cycle.

Handout: weatherwalkquestionsweather-climate-dump-n-clump

Period 2 and 3

In class students completed a pre-assessment showing their knowledge of the water cycle at this time. We then played the “water cycle” game to explore how water moves throughout the water cycle.

Handout: water-cycle-pre-post handoutwatercyclegameflowchart

C-Day

Period 1 and 4

In class students completed a pre-assessment showing their knowledge of the water cycle at this time. We then played the “water cycle” game to explore how water moves throughout the water cycle.

Homework: None

Period 3

A picture of a water cycle concept map from the USGS

In class we discussed how the water cycle game is a type of scientific model as well, because it helps us make sense of the water cycle and uses knowledge about the water cycle to make predictions. We then spent time working on analyzing the outcomes of the game. I also handed out a list of terms about the water cycle along with the picture of the water cycle, seen above, from the USGS

Handout: water-cycle-terms

Homework: Study the water cycle terms.
