The Water Cycle

The water cycle by R

Today we have been learning about the water cycle. Here are the children's water cycle diagrams.

The water cycle by L

We played a fun dice game from the Mr Q Earth sciences curriculum where the children were water droplets making their way through different parts of the water cycle. We also tried out some experiments to find out what happens to rain when it lands on different types of rocks and soils. The children discovered that clay is impermeable but that water soaks easily through compost and gravel.

We discussed the water table and made a mini aquifer.

We also have a glacier forming in our freezer; you'll have to wait for tomorrow for that one!
