Amazon Water Cycle Roleplay
In this creative roleplay activity, learners will explore the various processes of the water cycle using movement, sound, and props to aid in comprehension.
The Water (Hydrologic) Cycle: Transpiration
In this lab, learners grow broad bean (also called fava bean) plants in three EarthBoxes for a few weeks before exposing one to wind (using a fan), another to heat (using a lamp), and the third to not
Learners build models to learn about the special cells and structures that plants use to move water from their roots up through the stems and leaves.
Determining the Amount of Transpiration from a Schoolyard Tree
In this activity, learners calculate the number of milliliters of water a nearby tree transpires per day.
Leaf it to MeAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners observe the effect of transpiration as water is moved from the ground to the atmosphere.
Learners place cut flowers in colored water and observe how the flowers change. The flowers absorb the water through the stem and leaves.
The Water Cycle
Did you know that the water we use today is the same water found on Earth millions of years ago? The Earth constantly uses and recycles water in a process called the water cycle.
In this outdoor activity, learners compare the moisture released from different kinds of leaves and from different parts of the same leaf, by observing the color change of cobalt chloride paper.
What-a-cycleAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners act as water molecules and travel through parts of the water cycle to discover that it is more complex than just water moving from the ground to the atmosphere.
Photosynthesis and TranspirationAdd to list Details
In this activity on page 7 of the PDF (Plants—The Green Machines), learners examine the effects that light and air have on green plants.
Make a Water Cycle WristbandAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners thread colored beads onto string. Each beach represent a process of the water cycle.
