The Water Cycle - Reading Passage and Questions


Common Core requires students to read a variety of different texts for understanding. This Water Cycle passage is a great way to have students engaged in both reading and science.

I use these passages to introduce a topic to my students. It is especially helpful for my struggling readers because I can give it to them the night before we cover it in class. This way they are able to spend extra time with the material. They are also helpful for student-centered work in the classroom.

This is an introduction to the water cycle and can be used either at the beginning of the unit or at the end as a review.

The passage is approximately a page and a half in size 14 font. There are six questions for students to answer that require a synthesis of the material - not just memorization/repetition.
