Tap each sign to continue to the next phase of the cycle. Try viewing the Water Cycle in virtual reality for a breath-taking experience! VR headsets are not required though, and you can also experience the Water Cycle on mobile, Desktop, and even AR. After observing the unique properties of each phase of the Water Cycle, you can test your knowledge with a quick assessment at the end of the experience. Discover why water emerges from the ground in the form of sprigs, or how the sun can turn ocean waves into giant storm clouds! After viewing, you could discuss how climate change would affect each stage of the Water Cycle differently. Or how animal and human life affects feedback loops in any natural setting. Let this experience be a jumping off point for any unit on water or the water cycle!
