Apologia Physical Science (Ed. 2) - Module 5: The Hydrosphere

Here I have included videos, interactives, games and other websites to supplement Apologia's physical science course. Note: I am using the CD-ROM course and not the textbook. I have posted the list in chronological order of the lessons on the CD.

The Introduction: 
Water Is Amazing -- World Water Day! [Vsauce] March 22nd is World Water Day! Watch this Vsauce video on interesting qualities of water.

The Parts of the Hydrosphere and the Hydrologic Cycle:
NASA | Show Me the Water

Water Cycle Diagram [Earthguide] useful interactive diagram on the water cycle. 

The Water Cycle [National Science Foundation]

Experiment 5.1: 
EXPERIMENT 4.1 Apologia Physical Science

The Parts of the Hydrosphere and the Hydrologic Cycle 2:

Distillation [Footprints-Science] Simple animation on distillation.

The Ocean:
NASA Ocean Salinity Affecting Currents

Aquarius: One Year Observing the Salty Seas - Ocean Salinity & Climate [NASA] See the information the Aquarius mission has brought to us! Very fascinating.

TIL: Why Is the Ocean Salty? [National Geographic] Bob Ballard (oceanographer) explains how we didn't know why the ocean was salty until 1979.

Experiment 5.2: 
EXPERIMENT 5.2: Apologia Physical Science

Glaciers and Icebergs 2:
Glaciers - Interactive animation on types of glaciers, movement, erosion and more. Covers more than we are learning, but it is great info!

How do glaciers shape the landscape? [Oxford Education] This video animation contains a little bit more information than we need, but it is highly informative.

What's below the tip of an iceberg? - Camille Seamen [Ted-Ed]

Groundwater and Soil Moisture:
Groundwater Click through interactive on groundwater flow, precipitation, runoff, transpiration, infiltration, evaporation, the water table and more. Covers more  than the module does, but is not overwhelming.

Water Cycle Animation showing groundwater and its relationship with the water cycle.

What Is Groundwater? [KQED QUEST]

Experiment 5.3:

Atmospheric Moisture 2: 

Why Are There Clouds? [Minute Earth]

Water Pollution:
What is Water Pollution? [eSchoolToday] Click on the tabs on the left hand side to read more. Covers different types of water pollution, causes, effects and prevention. 

Module Conclusion: 
The Water Cycle summary [USGS Water Science School] Read this in-depth summary on the water cycle. It includes most of the topics from this module. It a great review for the module before taking the test.
