Water Cycle. K-6 Science Curriculum.
Blueford, J. R.; And Others
Water Cycle is one of the units of a K-6 unified science curriculum program. The unit consists of four organizing sub-themes: (1) atmosphere (highlighting the processes of evaporation, condensation, convection, wind movement and air pollution); (2) water (examining the properties of liquids, water distribution, use, and quality, and the water cycle); (3) oceans (investigating the physical features, life forms, resources, and locations of the oceans); and (4) weather (addressing the topics of clouds, winds, climate, and seasonal change). Each sub-theme contains an introductory statement, student activities for lower primary grades (K-3) and upper primary grades (4-6), and a teacher's copy for each student worksheet. Student worksheets are ready for duplicating. (ML)
