Here's a song from Dr. Jean that helped the children learn about the rain cycle. The children absolutely love this song!
The Water Cycle
Tune: My Darlin' Clementine
Precipitation all around
The water cycle goes
Round and round.
Here's a pocket chart I made from Thematic Units for Kindergarten by Kristin Schlosser, a book I've had for years. It's to the tune of Bingo.
This is the water cycle experiment that will be set up in the Science Center. The cloud is made from a coffee filter.
We will observe the water in this glass container and check the level each week to see how much water has evaporated. We will mark the water line until the end of the school year.
The children enjoyed several stories about clouds. They know the difference between cumulus, cirrus, stratus, and cumulonimbus clouds. Here are some of the children's cloud creations.
Of course, after the rain comes a rainbow! The children reviewed colors by working on fruit loops math.
