I'm a little bit delayed in writing this post about summer school. I suppose I let other summer fun get in the way of my blogging. Oops! :)
One day of summer school was spent discussing the Water Cycle. We started our chat about the water cycle by reading the story, A Drop Around the World. I've blogged about this book before because it is one of my favorites. The author does a wonderful job of explaining the multiple paths water can take throughout the water cycle. A class could spend a decent amount of time discussing only what they heard in the book!
The morning wouldn't be complete without a little singing and dancing...
Lastly, I wanted my students to be able to take home something about the water cycle. Using paper plates, colored pencils, cotton balls, and labels each student made a diagram of the water cycle. Hopefully my future 5th graders will remember this lesson when we begin talking about weather in the fall.
