Where does water come from?
After talking about where we find water (river, lakes, oceans ect.), one of our friends asked, "where does water come from?"
This led us to a great discussion about the water cycle.
With the help of jars, cotton balls, water and droppers the children were able to make rain fall from the clouds.
We talked about how when it rains clouds become heavy with water "condensation" and the rain falls down as "precipitation" only to " evaporate and rise up into the air again. A friend told us, "the water goes up and down and up and down." We revisited the word "cycle" and talked about how a cycle is like a pattern that repeats and never ends.
