How to Use the Water Cycle - Common Core Lessons and Activities
Work through the lessons and activities as a class to teach your students higher-order thinking, analysis, and 21st century skills necessary to meet new Common Core expectations.
Allow students to work through the lessons independently to build and practice these new skills.
Include technology, collaboration, presentations, and discussion in the activities as you desire - you can decide how in-depth to go.
Watch your class develop new abilities to meet the rigor of Common Core State Standards, right before your eyes!
Use some of the pages - or use them all - based on your grade, your students, your curriculum, and your needs.
Use these pages at their current size, or if you prefer them to be 8.5" X 11", enlarge them 125% on your copy machine.
Use the correlations grid to easily see which Common Core standards are covered in each lesson.
