Discover and investigate

Your pupils will discover that water can exist in three different states: solid, liquid and gas.

They will find out how this relates to the water cycle and how the water cycle works. They will also learn how to make a water cycle using simple materials, and make their own in a bag.

The lesson also involves a dramatic activity in which students become a water drop as it journeys through the water cycle and beyond.
