# Design for Learning

Instructor: Miss Lavender Lesson Title: The Water Cycle Curriculum Area: Science Grade Level/Cooperating Teacher: 2nd Date: November 1, 2013 Estimated Time: 45 minutes

Standards Connection: Describe evaporation, condensation, and precipitation in the water cycle. Learning Objective(s): When given an exit slip with a diagram of the water cycle, students will be able correctly identify the stages of the water cycle and give a brief description of each.

Learning Objective(s) stated in kid-friendly language: Today class, we will be learning about the water cycle and its three stages. You will know youve got it when you can label the parts of the water cycle and tell me a little about each stage.

Evaluation of Learning Objective(s): Students will be given an exit slip with a diagram of the water cycle on it. They will have to be able to label the water cycle correctly. After students label the water cycle diagram they will provide a brief description/explanation on the second sheet provided about the three steps discussed in class. Engagement: To start off the lesson the teacher will teach the students a song. Alright class, I have something fun for you guys this morning. Are you ready?! I am going to teach you a fun song. I need everyone to listen closely to the words and watch me....there are some motions and movement to this song! Alright, listening ears on!!! Here we go. (Teacher will sing The Water Cycle song to class. The song is to the tune of Shell be coming around the Mountain.) Water travels in a cycle, yes it does. Water travels in a cycle, yes it does. It goes up as evaporation, then forms clouds as condensation, then falls down as precipitation, yes it does! Pretty easy, right? I think we can do it. Wanna try? (wait for appropriate response) Alright, altogether on the count of 3. 1....2....3.....(The class will sing song with teacher) Water travels in a cycle, yes it does. Water travels in a cycle, yes it does. It goes up as evaporation, then forms clouds as condensation, then falls down as precipitation, yes it does! Superb job! Learning Design: I. Teaching: The teacher will transition into the teaching part of this lesson. So, can any of my friends tell me what you think we are going to be talking about today? (wait for appropriate response) Thats right! The Water Cycle. We have all seen rain, right? (wait for appropriate response) How many of you all like the rain? (wait for appropriate response) Ok, how many of you al dont like the rain? (wait for appropriate response) Me too! I am not a fan of rain! It messes up my hair!!! Well, another word for rain is precipitation. Which was in our song, right? (wait for appropriate response) From our song, who remembers the three stages mentioned? (wait for appropriate response) Awesome! Evaporation, Condensation, and Precipitation. Ok, I need for everyone to
