This week our focus was on the water cycle and specific vocabulary terms- Evaporation , Condensation and Precipitation. We completed daily activities and experiments to understand these terms. The children observed , made predictions and drew labelled diagrams in their science notebooks. And Ms. Rice made a cloud TWICE.
The next day's experiment was to see if we could create the entire cycle in a bowl. We were excited to see after 30 minutes the dry cup did indeed have some 'rain' accumulated in it. We were able to observe evaporation, condensation and precipitation in a bowl of hot water ( warm ocean ) with a cold atmosphere ( saran wrap and ice ).
