The Water Cycle

We continued our work with weather today by talking about The Water Cycle.  I read them a book and drew a picture of the water cycle on the board.  Then each student created their own picture of the water cycle. 

After making our pictures of the water cycle, we made water cycle headbands.  I LOVE these.  I found this idea in a magazine somewhere a couple of years ago and I think they are so much fun. 


 Cut out 4 colors of 2x6 pieces of construction paper for each child.  I also cut out a 2x6 piece of white paper for the cloud and a 2x6 piece of yellow paper for the sun.  Have students label each color and glue the sun to the evaporation paper and the cloud to the condensation paper.  Then staple them together in the correct order.

Thank you for posting your hard work for us to see and use. It's cute, free, and educational. All the things I love in a resource. My daughter is doing weather in school right now and she will enjoy doing these. Thanks again for providing this for us all.
