Water Action Science: Water Takes 3 Forms, Goes in A Cycle - Now You Do It!

from Author Valerie Marsh

Program image

   A little bit of art, math, a short story, and a whole lot of science! 
Author Valerie tells a story and then your students use their art skills to draw and retell our "No Water" story. After that, we explore where water is, how much it weighs, and act out water cycle. Students become molecules of water to act out water's three forms. We challenge
your students to an ice cube melting race!  This fun learning is full of STEAM! 

Students will need a pencil, sheet of photocopy paper, and two ice cubes.
