The Weight of Water

Today we asked the question "where do puddles go?"
One friend told us, "it dries up into the sky, into the air then the rain clouds pour out the water that the clouds held in the sky." 
Another friend said, " I didn't know clouds were made of water!"
We had a great conversation about the water cycle.
We introduced words like, "condensation", "evaporation" and "vapor".
We did an activity with cotton balls and water to show how when clouds get "heavy" it rains.
We used our scale to give the children an opportunity to discover the weight of water.
