Water Cycle

This week we were learning all about the Water Cycle. We learnt the words associated with "The Water Cycle"...Evaporation, condensation, precipitation and collection. We listened to a story about Drippy the raindrop and the journey he makes before he falls down as rain.

We carried out an experiment. We each got a cotton ball and pretended it was our cloud. We held it over the water-a river / the sea and the cloud was light to begin. Then the water evaporated and filled the cloud and then it met the cold air and condensation began and the cloud became heavier and then the water fell as rain (precipitation) and collected as water in the basin as the rain fell.
