Students will differentiate between the states of water and how they relate to the water cycle and weather.
Resources cannot be aligned to this standard, browse sub-standards to find lessons.
Demonstrate how water changes states from solid (ice) to liquid (water) to gas (water vapor/steam) and changes from gas to liquid to solid.
Identify the temperatures at which water becomes a solid and at which water becomes a gas.
Investigate how clouds are formed.
Explain the water cycle (evaporation, condensation, and precipitation).
