Water Cycle, Clouds and a Winner!

Hi friends! I just wanted to let you know that Patty won a copy of my Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs Literacy Unit!

We have started our weather unit and began learning about the water cycle, clouds and weather! Here are some things we are doing this year and/or have done in the past!

Put water in a clear glass. Spray shaving cream on top. This serves as your cloud. Put several drops of food coloring in the shaving cream. This shows students what happens when the clouds get heavy and it starts to precipitate! 

Your kiddos can write about and illustrate the steps of the water cycle!

This our cloud bulletin board. After reading The Cloud Book, you can have your students write about the different clouds and even make their own little cloud people!

After reading It Looked Like Spilt Milk, you can do this cute activity to review symmetry! Give students a blue piece of paper, have them fold it in half, then squirt some white paint in the crease. Have the close the paper and squish the paint around. Open and reveal their symmetrical "cloud!"

Have your students write adjectives to describe clouds around a cloud they make out of cotton balls!

I hope we can get to many of these activities again this year! And maybe you will be able to use some of them in your classroom!!
