Water Cycle Kickball

Sixth-grade science classes have been studying the water cycle for their final unit of the semester. For our RTI block of AO this week and next week, we have been playing water cycle kickball. In water cycle kickball, students begin their journey as a cloud. Once they advance to first base, they must become a form of precipitation, rain, snow, sleet, or hail. Going to second base, students are to run as fast as they can to show how water runoff "runs" downhill. And advancing to third base, the ocean, students become freshwater storage. Whenever three students would land in the ocean, someone would evaporate to home plate, thus completing their water cycle journey.
