Title: The Water Cycle
Description: The water cycle explains the sun heating the earth's surface water so that it evaporates. This vapor gathers in clouds which rise to the cold air. When those clouds become too heavy to float, they release their moisture as precipitation. The precipitation collects in lakes or oceans after siphoning through soil or running down rivers. It then evaporates and repeats the cycle once again. This lesson plan describes an activity that demonstrates the water cycle using a model that the students build as a class. 
Key Words: water cycle, precipitation, evaporation 
Grade Level: 6th, 7th 
Subject: Science
