The Incredible Journey

In this weather activity (page 4 of the PDF), learners will explore the water cycle through an interactive game. They will move among various stations representing areas within the water cycle, and keep track of their "journey." This is a great way for students to visualize, and therefore learn, the water cycle. Though this activity was created as a pre-visit for a traveling science show, it makes a great stand-alone activity as well!
