Our The Water Cycle lesson plan guides students through the water cycle process and enables them to define and accurately explain each of the steps of the Earth’s water cycle. During this lesson, students are asked to create a 2D model of the water cycle, using a checklist to make sure they have included every step. Students are also asked to complete a crossword puzzle using lesson vocabulary, demonstrating their understanding of the terms and definitions needed for this lesson.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify the water cycle process, plus define and accurately explain each of the steps of the Earth’s water cycle.
