Now that you’ve got the basics of groundwater down, its time to learn about the water cycle – the constant move of water in the environment.
Water is always on the move. From the time the earth was formed, it has been endlessly circulating through the hydrologic cycle. Groundwater is an important part of this continuous cycle as water evaporates, forms clouds, and returns to earth as precipitation.
The videos of this lesson are broken into 2 – one for K-3 and one geared towards grades 4-8. Also check out the Water Cycle song/video!
Along with the coloring sheets and word searches that are included in every lesson – Lesson 2 includes a paper craft, water cycle experiment, and an activity to measure and track how much water you use in a day.
The Groundwater Foundation also offers a resource search to find material by age, topic, and activity category.
