ENTRY BEHAVIOUR/ PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE: the students are familiar with the human body.
WORD FILE: electricity, condensation, evaporation.
Water is very essential to man, animals and plants to survive in their environment for growth and to cool its body.
Human use water also for cooking, eating, source of electricity, processing of goods.
THE WATER CYCLE
Water cycle is the movement of water in liquid or gaseous state from the earth surface to the atmosphere and back to the earth.
The Heat from the sun causes water to move as gas or vapour from the surface of the earth into the sky by evaporation. The water becomes cool and forms cloud by condensation, the cloud sends down the water back to the surface of the earth as rain.
THE FORMATION OF RAIN
The major sources of water are lakes, River Sea, ocean etc.
The process of rain formation are as follows:
- When rain falls, some of the water goes to the streams, rivers, lakes, ponds, and sea while some water will fall on leaves and holes in trees.
- The heat from the sun changes some of the water to vapour or gas (Evaporation). This vapour is carried up into the atmosphere.
- The rising vapour meet cooler air in the sky and then forms clouds (condensation).
- When the cloud becomes too big and heavy for the air to carry, it falls back to earth as rain.
- The Teacher revises the previous lesson (Reproduction in Plant).
- The Teacher introduces the lesson through question and answer (WATER CYCLE AND RAIN FORMATION).
- The Teacher explains the lessons.
- The Teacher write the note on the board.
Learners participate in the class discussion
Teacher ask the learners to:
- What is Water cycle?
- What is Rain formation?
- What is the Relationship between water cycle and rain formation?
CONCLUSION: the teacher summarize the lesson.
