This inquiry based lesson will remain the same with the following exceptions:
the "engage" component of the lesson will instead be the "flipped classroom" piece where students use this Sophia tutorial to learn about the water cycle. Instead of the teacher reading the students "Wet All Over" (Magic School Bus), the students will watch the video at home. Students will come to class prepared with relevant vocabulary, introduced in my "where does water come from" video, so that we can go right into the "explore" science activity (Water Cycle Bag).
Learn all about the water cycle and new related vocabulary!
Watch as Ms. Frizzle's class goes on a wet and wild ride through the water cycle. The students will evaporate, condensate, precipitate, collect into the ocean and then do it all over again!
Watch this video to find out more about the water cycle. Highlight the key vocabulary words to discover their meaning and test your knowledge at the end with the short quiz!
