We are learning about how to ask a question and Water

Today we made an obstacle course. After we finished our obstacle course we asked questions about what we did. E.g. "How did you get under the table?" "What part did you like best?"

We Learned about the water cycle and we made rain:
MAKE IT RAIN Raindrops


glass mayonnaise or canning jar
hot water
ice cubes
index cards

Pour about two inches of very hot water into the glass jar.

Cover the jar with the plate and wait a few minutes before you start the next step.

Put the ice cubes on the plate.


What happens? The cold plate causes the moisture in the warm air, which is inside the jar to condense and form water droplets. This is the same thing that happens in the atmosphere. Warm, moist air rises and meets colder air high in the atmosphere. The water vapor condenses and forms precipitation that falls to the ground.
