Understanding the Water Cycle

Earlier today, in my search for elementary school resources about dinosaurs I stumbled upon some other interesting science resources for elementary school students and teachers. One of those resources is Morphie's Great Water Ride Adventure. In Morphie's Great Water Ride Adventure students follow the journey of a raindrop as it performs many tasks. Through the adventure students learn about the many ways that water is used and why it is important to conserve water.

Applications for Education
The lesson plans that accompany Morphie's Great Water Ride Adventure include hands-on activities that get students to look at all of the ways that water is used in their school and community.

The slideshow embedded below may be of use middle school and high school science teachers teaching about the cycle of water.
