The water cycle

In this unit devoted to Year 5 of Primary Education, we are going to introduce the topic of Science "Water Cycle" in English (CLIL) through this song.

 

Timing: 2 lessons of one hour.

 

Activity 1. This is a motivating song about "The water cycle", let´s learn the lyric!

 

The water cycle
Takes the water and moves it
Up and down and all around the Earth
The water cycle
Takes the water and moves it
Up and down and all around the Earth
The water cycle
Takes the water and moves it
Up and down and all around the Earth
The water cycle
Takes the water and moves it
Up and down and all around the Earth
Evaporation comes
When the heat from the Sun
Warms up all the groundwater
Then it turns to water vapor
Condensation takes over
It goes up to the clouds
Water vapor cools down
And it changes to a liquid, now
Precipitation happens
When the drops get big
It falls like rain, snow, sleet, and hail upon my head
I know it's the water cycle happening again
Evaporation, condensation, precipitation
The water cycle
Takes the water and moves it
Up and down and all around the Earth
The water cycle
Takes the water and moves it
Up and down and all around the Earth
Evaporation comes
When the heat from the Sun
Warms up all the groundwater
Then it turns to water vapor
Condensation takes over
It goes up to the clouds
Water vapor cools down
And it changes to a liquid, now
Precipitation happens
When the drops get big
It falls like rain, snow, sleet, and hail upon my head
I know it's the water cycle happening again
Evaporation, condensation, precipitation
The water cycle
Takes the water and moves it
Up and down and all around the Earth
The water cycle
Takes the water and moves it
Up and down and all around the Earth
Evaporation comes
When the heat from the Sun
Warms up all the groundwater
Then it turns to water vapor
Condensation takes over
It goes up to the clouds
Water vapor cools down
And it changes to a liquid, now
Precipitation happens
When the drops get big
It falls like rain, snow, sleet, and hail upon my head
I know it's the water cycle happening again
Evaporation, condensation, precipitation
The water cycle
Takes the water and moves it
Up and down and all around the Earth
The water cycle
Takes the water and moves it
Up and down and all around the Earth
The water cycle
Takes the water and moves it
Up and down and all around the Earth
The water cycle
Takes the water and moves it
Up and down and all around the Earth

 

Activity 2. Explain in what consists the water cycle to the children and do a brainstorm on the whiteboard. Then, give them a worksheet related to the topic.

 

Activity 3. Review with flashcards the high frequency vocabulary of this CLIL. (Link 3).

 

Activity 4. Role-play. Using this kind of methodology, children will represent each part of the water cycle.

 

In the next links, we have also included games, more information, the high frequency vocabulary of this CLIL and some arts & crafts. We hope you have enjoyed with this lesson plan.
