An interactive quiz about the Water Cycle. This quiz by NASA’s Global Climate Change website allows students to test their knowledge about the natural water cycle and its role in Earth’s climate.
Students will be quizzed on various aspects of the water cycle, including evaporation and precipitation. They will understand the connections between the various components of the water cycle and be introduced to some of the facts and figures associated with these components.
Use this tool to help your students find answers to:
- Discuss the ‘Water Cycle’ and its components in the classroom.
- Discuss how climate change can potentially affect the water cycle.
