Earth Science Unit - The Water Cycle
Week 22: The kids found ways to convert ice, water and steam to counterpart states.
Bill Nye the Science Guy has a fabulous video on the water cycle. We watched it along with reading
The Magic School Bus Wet All Over: A Book About The Water Cycle
Then I challenged the kids to find ways to convert water. Here's what they came up with.
Converting water to steam by breathing on the window.
Creating a cloud by putting hot water in a glass and covering it so the steam could not escape.
Converting steam to water by covering hot water and putting ice on the top to create a greater temperature difference and increase the speed of condensation.
Most of the ideas were discussed in the video, so it was good to see them making connections.
