In this module, students will:

  • learn about the source of rainfall
  • explore the natural water cycle
  • conduct an experiment investigating evaporation
  • reflect on and suggest improvements to scientific investigations
  • design and make a rain gauge
  • dramatise or digitally explain the Water Cycle
