Description:

In this activity, learners observe the hydrologic cycle in action as water evaporates and condenses to form rain right before their eyes. Learners perform a simple experiment to precipitate "rainwater" from ice cubes sealed in a sandwich bag. This resource includes an explanation of how little rainwater accounts for the total amount of water on Earth as well as some tips for flash flood safety.
