1.  Explain the water cycle and describe how evaporation, transpiration, condensation, cloud formation, precipitation, infiltration, surface runoff, groundwater and absorption occur within the cycle.
2.  Analyze the flow of water between the components of a watershed, including surface features (lakes, streams, rivers, wetlands) and groundwater.
3.  Explain how human activities (surface mining, deforestation, overpopulation, construction and urban development, farming, dams, landfills, and restoring natural areas) change the surface of the Earth and affect the survival of organisms.

Today in Class:

Welcome Back to School!  We hope you had a terrific Spring Break! 🙂

1.  Quick review of clouds seen over Break.  

2.  Water Retention & The Water Cycle Activity- you and a partner moved from station to station of the water cycle,  as a drop of water.  The role of the Water Cycle die told you where you would go next, how the water droplet would move from place to place, or that you would be retained at that particular step of the water cycle.

3.  The class watched the video, “After the Storm.”    You should have completed answers on an accompanying worksheet as you watched the video to help you to focus on the concepts illustrated in the video.   Most classes watched about 3/4 of the video.  We will watch the last part of this video tomorrow in class, but you are also welcome to watch this at home if you wish to check your answers and your understanding.

Homework:  1.  Study and complete: Types of Clouds Diagram.  Be prepared to ask and answer questions tomorrow.   2.  Quiz #1: The Water Cycle,  Watersheds, and Clouds – (types, formation)
