Throughout the inquiry, in this chapter, students play the role of scientists who are investigating the question, How can a drop of water travel around the world? Students examine the water cycle: evaporation, condensation, infiltration, and transpiration. Then students develop a water cycle diagram based on what they have learned. Along with learning about the water cycle, students also learn about the importance of the reproducibility of results.
