During our forest walk last week, one of the conversations we had was about rain. The children named a number of things that need rain: plants, animals, fish, and oceans. We have begun learning about rain and the water cycle by conducting some experiments. Prior to the experiments, some of the children shared their knowledge:
Sofia - when the water disappears, it is called evaporation.
Tyreese - rain comes from the clouds.
Bela - the sun dries up the puddles.
William - rain makes puddles.
|Precipitation: simulating rain when clouds get heavy.|
|How long will it take the|
water to evaporate?
|How much precipitation will|
When our experiments were completed, we began painting a large water cycle mural.
