The Water Cycle

This is a website by scholastic that focuses on the water cycle. The target grade range for this interactive site is 3rd-5th grade. There is a short list of learning objectives that are provided on this site- so you will know right away if the activities on this site satisfy what you are looking for. Also on this page, there is an ‘activity’ link that will take you to the interactive site that your students can use.

After clicking the activity link, students will be able to watch a 3 minute animated video that briefly explains the water cycle. This would be a great video to show during an introduction to a unit on the water cycle. After the movie, students have the option of taking a 7 [multiple choice] question ‘test’ about the water cycle. There isn’t a way for teachers to see the results, but students will be able to see their own strengths and weaknesses in knowledge of the water cycle. One last thing that this site provides is a ‘Key Vocabulary’ list that includes words from the video along with written definitions.
