The teaching unit is suitable for the subject of geography in grades 5–7. It is split into three teaching sequences (guideline: 7 class periods), which gives the teacher the opportunity to adapt the contents based on the class level. The water cycle topic is partly a review from elementary school. Some materials in this teaching unit, especially the animation and the worksheet, are also suitable for elementary school.
The wide variety of media in this media package (graphics, interactive information modules and animations, information sheets, experimentation instructions, a worksheet, and a project idea) support you in real-world-oriented teaching. The time division of the teaching periods and the use of the media are outlined in teaching methods for the teacher.
