A Raindrop Roadtrip
In this activity, students will 'become' water droplets and travel among the different storages of water. Students will roll a die to determine which station in the classroom they will go to: the atmosphere, ocean, forest, or glaciers. They must answer a question correctly to roll the die again and continue to another storage in the water cycle. As students journey around the water cycle, they will keep track of their travels and also name the process that allows them to travel from one water storage to another.
Real World Science Topics:
- Modeling of a major Earth system.
- An exploration of the storage and flows in the water cycle.
After completing this activity, students will be able to describe the storages and flows of the water cycle.
