Understand the water cycle by playing it out
Duration: 45 to 90 min
Type of activity: hands-on modelization
Materials required: chalk or rope to trace lines on the ground
In this activity, students become water molecules and change state from solid, to liquid, to gas. They then move around between the ocean, air and land to act out the water cycle.
Acting out processes that are too big or too small to be investigated easily is a good learning strategy!
The videos show examples of how this activity can play out. The instructions can be found in the downloadable activity sheet.
