Water Cycle Board Game

MISSION: IMPERMEABLE - You are a water molecule and you are on a mission to find out how water moves through a system.

This is a differentiated board game which covers many aspects of the hydrological cycle. The game introduces a lot of technical terminology in context, encouraging deeper understanding of the links between processes in the system.

The supporting question sheet is designed to encourage students to think about how realistic the game is and the sequential nature of the hydrological cycle.

These resources are ideal for determining student understanding of the intricacies of the hydrological cycle, but equally could be used to introduce the cycle from scratch, with more able classes.

Additional equipment required:
Counters - although pen lids and rubbers etc work equally well
Dice - or dice app!
