Daily Objectives:

1. Explain the water cycle and describe how evaporation, transpiration, condensation, cloud formation, precipitation, infiltration, surface runoff and ground water occur within the cycle.

2. Identify and differentiate between different water environments
E.ES.07.81 / S.IP.07.1 / S.IA.07.13

Today in Class:

1.Students completed the Atmospheric Layers and Objects WS – you should have completed your Atmospheric Layers and Objects diagram notes last week Thursday and Friday (or even drawn the objects in different layers yesterday).  You were to list each on a worksheet, showing how much you covered.

2.  Next, students were put into groups of 5-7 people.  Your group was to check definitions of concepts related to the Water Cycle (this list is on the notes section of my Blog.).  If your group was unfamiliar with a term – ex.: aquifer-  one person should have looked up the definition of that concept in the textbook (or online, if it is not in your text).  Then each group member was to explain the terms and definitions that they researched to the rest of the group.

3. The next step – is to draw a Water Cycle diagram –  YES, more diagram notes!  This is important.  Do NOT simply draw a simple water cycle diagram off of the internet.  Most of these diagrams do not show many of the parts of the water cycle.  Most students were just starting these diagrams.  We will complete these diagrams tomoorrow during class.

MY Notes Page is acting up—  😦

so I am posting the terms below the HW for today.



Read pages 5-10 in your text.  Which reading strategy will you use?  Sticky Note Reading?  I Read, I Understand?  Frames?  Hamburger Frame?  Write Ins?….
