Water Wherever: The Water Cycle

The journal entry “Water Wherever” provides the synopsis for two books that connect to the water cycle. The first book is geared towards K-3 students. This book talks about the formation of snow and its role in the water cycle. The second book is geared towards 4-6th graders. This book gets more in depth about the water cycle. Following reading this book the journal provides different examples of activities the students can do. One of the examples was a terrarium which can demonstrate condensation, precipitation and evaporation. It’s important to remember when teaching the water cycle lesson that literacy shouldn’t consume it! The science part of the day should be hands on; use the literacy portion of the day to introduce books like these for science!
