Inhalt - B1 Water cycle (teacher instructions) The teacher instructions include information on the following: the main question, relevance to the curriculum, skills, notes on conducting the subexperiments, the research group, and further research assignments. The experiment comprises two subexperiments: • The Earth’s water cycle • Water transport in plants The students will learn about the Earth’s water cycle and examine the individual elements. They will understand the cycle as a closed system in which nothing is lost on its own, but rather substances (for example, water) can appear in different manifestations (states of matter). In the initial phase, the students will be sensitized to a conscious way of dealing with nature and our environment. They will understand how plants absorb water through their roots and transport it to their uppermost leaves. This will give them an initial glimpse into the complex capillary action: Water rises through the plant’s thin pathways (capillaries) all the way to the tips of the leaves. The capillary action is supported by the suction that develops due to the evaporation of water from the plant.
- B1.1 The Earth’s water cycle (student instructions) Detailed instructions and questions for students on conducting the subexperiment - B1.2 Water transport in plants (student instructions) Detailed instructions and questions for students on conducting the subexperiment
- Worksheet for Experimento | 8+ (blank template) The students can use this blank template during the experiment to record their results and observations. - The water cycle (Graphik) The water cycle is drawn into a landscape with mountains, forest, meadows, and a lake. - Safety information for Experimento | 8+ (poster)
- Educational-didactic introduction – Experimento | 8+ This document explains the basic educational concept of Experimento | 8+ and the methodology behind the worksheet. - Safety information on the topic of the environment – Experimento | 8+ The teacher should carefully read the safety information before the experiment is conducted and discuss it with the students!
