This website provides an interactive water cycle model that is great for teachers and students. There are three different levels at which you can set the model- beginner, intermediate, and advanced. This makes the site perfect for a wide range of students. The model is a labeled picture that includes the names of the different parts of the cycle, as well as some other things that influence the cycle. When a student hovers over any of the words, a box pops up with information about that specific part of the cycle. As the level increases, the amount of words on the model increases. The explanation of each step of the cycle goes more in depth in the higher levels, and explanations are simpler/shorter at the beginning level. In the ‘advanced’ level model, the description boxes include links to more information, allowing students to further their research.
