Water Cycle Game

  1. 1. Water Cycle Investigation 5 - 1 Part 2
  2. 2. Think About a Water Molecule <ul><li>A water molecule can move from place to place. </li></ul><ul><li>It can blow through the sky in a mass of water vapor or as part of a drop of liquid water in a cloud. </li></ul><ul><li>It can flow down a mountain in a river. </li></ul><ul><li>It can move through the ocean in currents. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Water-Cycle Game <ul><li>Each group represents one water molecule </li></ul><ul><li>Move from place to place, just like a water molecule moves from place to place on Earth </li></ul><ul><li>Water-Location Posters </li></ul>Soil River Plant Ocean Lake Groundwater Glacier Atmosphere Animal
  4. 4. Location <ul><li>Water-Cycle Game </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Fill in Location space after each roll of the die. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Roles </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Starter - in charge of rolling die </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reader - reads directions from Water-Location Poster and figures out where the group heads next </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Recorder - records the location and the changes (if any) that occurred to molecule after each roll of die </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Monitor - makes sure everyone in group stays together throughout its travels </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Game Rules <ul><li>Start at assigned location, record </li></ul><ul><li>Roll die. Find die number on poster. </li></ul><ul><li>Read statement to find where to go next </li></ul><ul><li>Depending on result above, roll die again or move to new location </li></ul><ul><li>Continue rolling die, moving, and recording location until all spaces are filled </li></ul><ul><li>Return to desks after roll 10. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Class Results <ul><li>Copy group results onto individual sheets - first box only! </li></ul><ul><li>Class tallies per location </li></ul><ul><li>Record class results on worksheet </li></ul><ul><li>Review results, where did the water land most frequently? Least frequently? </li></ul>
  7. 7. How Does Water Move Around the Environment? <ul><li>Water evaporates from the ocean </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Turns liquid water into water vapor </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Water vapor enters atmosphere and lifted upward </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Condenses into clouds of tiny liquid droplets </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Clouds move over land </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Water falls as precipitation </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Precipitation flows downhill </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Eventually returns to ocean </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Compare your results to the above </li></ul>
  8. 8. Refining the Water Cycle <ul><li>Any time a molecule leaves a location and returns to that location, it has gone through a cycle. </li></ul><ul><li>Some cycles are short and simple. </li></ul><ul><li>Some cycles are long and complex. </li></ul><ul><li>Two meanings of Water Cycle </li></ul><ul><ul><li>General system shown on poster - evaporation, condensation, precipitation, accumulation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Smaller, more complex water cycles </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>Respond to items at bottom of Water-Cycle Game sheet </li></ul><ul><ul><li>2nd item - write “s” and 1-10 on picture to indicate where your molecule started and moved to after each roll of die. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Draw a line connecting the numbers </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. Water Cycle Summary <ul><li>What are your insights about movement of water through the environment? </li></ul><ul><li>Water cycle = water in motion </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Water leaves Earth’s surface </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Moves to new location as vapor and clouds </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Returns to Earth’s surface as precipitation </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Huge cycles that take a long time </li></ul><ul><li>Small water cycles </li></ul>
  11. 11. Questions from last class <ul><li>What prevents us from running out of water? </li></ul><ul><li>Where does new water come from? </li></ul><ul><li>Answer is The Water Cycle! </li></ul><ul><li>Water cycle constantly redistributes water all over the planet - recycle </li></ul><ul><li>Water vapor condenses into liquid and solid water - precipitation </li></ul><ul><li>Precipitation delivers new water </li></ul>
  12. 12. Weather Role <ul><li>Water cycle plays a major role in the kind of weather we have </li></ul><ul><li>Water condensing in sky = cloudy weather </li></ul><ul><li>Water returning to Earth’s surface = rain or snow </li></ul><ul><li>In hot weather, lots of water evaporates = humid weather </li></ul><ul><li>Each part of water cycle produces some kind of weather </li></ul>
  13. 13. Quick Write Review <ul><li>Review original response to “What is the Water Cycle?” </li></ul><ul><li>Circle and number ideas or sentences you wish to comment on or revise </li></ul><ul><li>Add new information and illustrations to enhance explanation of water cycle </li></ul>
  14. 14. Vocabulary <ul><li>Salt water - water found in the oceans. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Contains dissolved salts and other materials </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Fresh water - water containing little or no salt </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Located in atmosphere, glaciers, ice caps, lakes, rivers, streams, soils, and groundwater </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Water Cycle - general process that recycles water by evaporation, condensation, precipitation, and flow </li></ul>
  15. 15. Content <ul><li>Where is most of Earth’s water found? </li></ul><ul><li>Where is Earth’s fresh water found? </li></ul><ul><li>How is water recycled on Earth? </li></ul><ul><li>Homework: Read Earth’s Water and The Water Cycle - answer questions in notebook </li></ul>
  16. 16. Earth’s Water Questions <ul><li>Where is most of Earth’s water? </li></ul><ul><li>What are the main sources of fresh water used by humans? </li></ul><ul><li>What can people do to make better use of the water that is available? </li></ul>
  17. 17. The Water Cycle Questions <ul><li>What is the water cycle? </li></ul><ul><li>When water fall from clouds, what forms can it take? </li></ul><ul><li>Describe a large water cycle that takes a long time to complete. </li></ul><ul><li>Describe a small water cycle that takes a short time to complete. </li></ul>
