Water Distribution on Earth
Are you covering water distribution on Earth in your 5th-grade science class?
Students will LOVE these engaging activities and labs on water distribution! This unit starts with the use of phenomena and includes an assessment. The reading passages and response can be used for a distance education packet. Students love my science resources for 5th-grade like this mystery powder science lab and this great Food Chain Lesson.
These water distribution labs give a great visual way to see Earth’s water distribution.

This resource has almost two hundred PERFECT reviews on Teachers Pay Teachers:
The lab so clearly demonstrates the comparison of salt and freshwater as well as where water is found. My kids loved this lab! Reading passages really sealed the learned and were tied nicely to CCSS for RI text.
I liked how the standards are referenced. Kids enjoyed working on this.
