# Module 6: Moving Water Around the World- Science 3 - Course Guide

## Module Overview:

In this module, students will learn to describe how the water cycle works and complete an experiment to investigate the water cycle. They will observe and record the rate at which water evaporates and investigate condensation and record findings. Students will also describe the changes water goes through in different states, differentiate among the three states of matter, and demonstrate how heating and cooling cause changes in the properties of water.

## Learning Coach Notes:

Lesson # Lesson Title Notes
1 The Water Cycle After completing this lesson, ask your student to illustrate the water cycle and explain it to you.
2 Evaporation and Condensation After completing this lesson, ask your student to explain the role of evaporation and condensation in the water cycle.
3 States of Water After completing this lesson, ask your student to explain how the states of matter are represented in the water cycle.
4 Project: Water Cycle Weather After your student reviews the directions for this project, ask them to explain the requirements of the project and the rubric before they begin. When they are finished have them review the requirements and rubric again, to make sure their project meets all of the requirements.

## Module Guiding Questions:

When a student starts a lesson ask them questions to check for prior knowledge and understanding and to review concepts being taught. At the end of the lesson ask the questions again to see if their answer changes.

Lesson Title Question
The Water Cycle
1. How does water move around the Earth?
Evaporation and Condensation
1. What are the roles of condensation and evaporation in the water cycle?
States of Water
1. How does water change?
Project: Water Cycle Weather
1. How does the water cycle connect to the weather?

## Module Video Questions:

When a student watches a video take time to ask them questions about what they watched. Suggested questions for the videos in this module are listed here. Suggestion: Have the student watch the entire video first all the way through. Then have them watch the video a second time, as they watch it pause the video and ask the questions.

## Module Suggested Read Aloud Books:

Take time to read to your student or have them read aloud to you. Read a different book each day. While reading the book point out concepts being taught. You may purchase these books or find them at your local library. Suggested things to discuss while reading the book:

• What is the main idea?
• What are three things new you learned?
• How does this book relate to what you are learning about?
