The hydrologic, or water cycle is the movement of water on, above, and through the earth’s surface. In this activity designed for K-12th graders, students will be introduced to the hydrologic cycle, how water is collected and is used in California, and how scientists measure the water cycle. By the end of this activity students will be able to define parts of the cycle, describe how the cycle changes seasonally, and identify the ways scientists measure the water cycle.
