I think students become more interested in studying something like the water cycle if they understand that there are important jobs related to the knowledge they'll gain.

www.kidzone.ws/WATER/ Has some children's water cycle ideas. Here's another website you might like: http://ga.water.usgs.gov/edu/watercycle.html

How about reviews and journal articles in this area? Do you think there are journal articles on the water cycle?

Let's look for some...

▪ Abstract Photoreduction of dioxygen in photosystem I (PSI) of chloroplasts generates superoxide
radicals as the primary product. In intact chloroplasts, the superoxide and the hydrogen peroxide

Evidence for intensification of the global water cycle: Review and synthesis

waterandclimateinformationcentre.org [PDF]
TG Huntington - Journal of Hydrology, 2006 - Elsevier
One of the more important questions in hydrology is: if the climate warms in the future, will there
be an intensification of the water cycle and, if so, the nature of that intensification? There is considerable
interest in this question because an intensification of the water cycle may lead to changes ...

There are many others. Try your own search.

But then, look at the difference between the children's posts and the higher reader levels. Can you find anything to fill in the gap?
