## Presentation Transcript

Slide1Department of Mathematics and ScienceBig Idea 7:  Earth Systems and    Patterns The Water Cycle SC.5.E.7.1  Create a model to explain the parts of the water cycle.  Water can be a gas, liquid, or solid and can go back and forth from one state to another.  (also assesses SC.5.E.7.2) Keisha Kidd, Curriculum Support Specialist Mary Tweedy, Curriculum Support Specialist Millard Lightburn, PHD Instructional Supervisor Department of Mathematics and Science

Slide2Water Cycle Water  Cycle • Evaporation • Condensation • Precipitation Department  of  Mathematics  and  Science

Slide3Essential Question: Essential  Question: What will happen to water in a cup if the cup is placed inside a sealed bag and left in a warm area? Department  of  Mathematics  and  Science

Slide4Water Cycle  Activity Water  Cycle  Activity EXPLORE Essential Lab #8 Review (3 days) Department  of  Mathematics  and  Science

Slide6SunSun • • Heat from the sun changes water into water vapor Department  of  Mathematics  and  Science

Slide7When the sun  changes water into water  vapor E VAPOR ATION Department  of  Mathematics  and  Science

Slide8CONDENSATIONWhen water vapor forms clouds Department  of  Mathematics  and  Science

Slide9Rain or  snow  falls  from clouds Rain  or  snow  falls  from clouds Department  of  Mathematics  and  Science

Slide10PRECIPITATIONDepartment  of  Mathematics  and  Science

Slide11Water Cycle  Song (to  the  tune  of   “She’ll  Be  Coming  Around  the  Mountain”) Water  Cycle  Song (to  the  tune  of   “She’ll  Be  Coming  Around  the  Mountain”) Water travels in a cycle, yes it does. Use pointer finger to draw large circle in air . Water travels in a cycle, yes it does . Repeat above motion. It goes up as evaporation , Raise arms at side with palms up. Forms clouds as condensation, Brings hands together above head, forming large cloud shape with arms. Then falls down as precipitation, yes it does . Slowly lower arms at side with palms down, fingers moving. Department  of  Mathematics  and  Science

Slide15True or  False True  or  False Water can be found naturally on Earth as a solid and a liquid, but not a gas. • False The H 2 O molecule consists of one Hydrogen atom, and two Oxygen atoms. • False It takes a lot of heat, or energy, to change the temperature of water. • True Water covers approximately 75% of the Earth’s surface. • True Department  of  Mathematics  and  Science

Slide16Review Questions Review  Questions • What is the role of the sun in the water cycle? • Answer: The sun provides energy that makes the water cycle happen. • How is water vapor created? • Answer: When the sun warms water it evaporates. When it evaporates it turns into water vapor. • . Department  of  Mathematics  and  Science

Slide17What happens to water vapor in the water cycle? • Answer: Water vapor becomes part of the atmosphere. Then it cools and turns into liquid water or ice. The water or ice then falls back to Earth as precipitation. • Where does water collect on Earth after falling from the sky? • Answer: Water collects in the oceans. It also collects in other bodies of water and underground.

Slide18GIZMOSWater  Cycle Control  the  path  of  a  drop  of  water  as  it  travels  through  the  water  cycle. Many  alternatives  are  presented  at  each  stage.  Determine  how  the water  moves  from  one  location  to  another,  and  learn  how  water resources  are  distributed  in  these  locations.
