Swimming Through the Water Cycle

Target group: 5th grade during science block

This BrainPop video will be watched by a fifth-grade classroom as an introduction to the water cycle. Although they might know some of these concepts and words, they will be learning about the different aspects of the water cycle and how it connects overall. There will be follow-up lessons going into greater depth of the water cycle, but this will help them get a basic idea. There are a series of both multiple choice and short answer questions for them to answer throughout the video.


After engaging in a water phenomena video, students will engage in a brainstorming session about how the water cycle works. After the discussion, students will open their laptops and engage with the video and questions.
