1. Topic-
 Parts of the Water Cycle
2. Content-
 Condensation Precipitation Runoff Evaporation
3. Goals: Aims/Outcomes-
 1. Label each part of the Water Cycle 2. Understand the importance of each part 3. Comprehend how each part works off of each other. 4. Create their own Water Cycle in a small group
4. Objectives-
 1. Label the whole Water Cycle 2. Explain how the Water Cycle works 3. Be able to explain the importance of each part.
5. Materials and Aids-
 Smartboard Posterboard Markers Water Cycle Sheet
6. Procedures/Methods-

A. Introduction-

 1. Raise your hand if you use water throughout the day? 2. List some ways you use water.

B. Development-

 1. Bring up an example of the water cycle. 2. Go through each part and pronounce it. 3. Explain how the water cycle flows.

C. Practice-

 1. Teacher brings up the Water Cycle and points to its parts and the students raise their hand and state which part of the water cycle the teacher is pointing too.

D. Independent Practice-

 1.Each Student receives a water cycle sheet. 2. Work on placing the right "Section tab" in the right spot on the blank water cycle sections.

E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)-

 1. Allow the student to say the part instead of writing it. 2. Have the student point to the part of the water cycle that you call out. 3. Have the student only work on two of the parts of the water cycle.

F. Checking for understanding-

 1. While the students are raising their hand and stating which part of the water cycle you are pointing too. 2. Walk around the room as the students are labeling the water cycle parts. 3. Asked questions on which part the students like the most and why?

G. Closure-

 1.Explain how they all just learned the WHOLE Water Cycle. 2. Explain how they now understand how important water is to their daily lives.
7. Evaluation-
 1. Assessment will occur while the students work on labeling the water cycle, raising their hand and stating what part it is, and at the end of the lesson when they present their groups water cycle. 2. The summative assessment will be done by the students later being able to label the parts of the Water Cycle as well as write one fact about each part.
