My follow up project after we learn about the water cycle this week :)

Project - Making Clean Water: After learning about pollution and water conservation, you could have groups of students make clean water that has been "polluted" with dirt and other sediments.

Making It Rain

Kids would "get" the water cycle SO MUCH more if they did THIS instead of just read about it in a text book!! ...and so simple.

Wear an old sock over your shoe. Go for a nature walk. Remove sock, spritz with water put into a ziploc bag. Hang the bag in a window for 2 weeks....watch what GROWS! Very cool! Also check out Mrs. Drake's webpage for science resources. It's a GOLDMINE!

“What Dissolves in Water?” Experiment for Kids from the Pantry

Do these solids dissolve? We tried oatmeal, cornmeal, flour, sugar, brown sugar, rice and sprinkles for opposite day. Used droppers with water and craft sticks to stir items in recycled plastic containers.

Making Rain Activity

Make rain in a bag to teach water cycle

Water Cycle Craft - no instructions, but pretty easy to figure out what to do and mostly straight-cutting except for the sun which is pretty easy to make or find elsewhere. These would be fun to make for the WOW journey.
