Week of December 11th

Water travels in a cycle, yes it does!

Students put on their (metaphorical) lab coats and goggles and became expert scientists! Students continued to explore the water cycle this week! Students learned about the three parts of the water cycle: evaporation, condensation, and precipitation. We spent our afternoons making observations, doing experiments, and of course singing about the water cycle!

All week long your little scientists have been recording their observations about a cup of water sitting by the window to learn about evaporation. We’ve worked on adding scientific details to our observations.

Using ice cubes, cups, and warm water students predicted what might happen inside the cup. Students observed the cup fogging up and little water drops appearing! Condensation at work!

Last but not least, shaving cream clouds helped us visualize precipitation at work. All the snow outside helped too!

Have your student sing our water cycle song! We’ve been singing it all week!

Students also did a fun Snowman at Night craft and had chips and salsa as part of our All-School Celebration!
