Click on the link to see the water cycle experiment we used as an introduction to this unit.
For this section of the lesson
we simply asked students if they knew the source of the water in
their homes. For the most part students did not know the answer to
this question. At this point on the board, we showed them a drawing
of the water cycle similar to the one found below.
As we discussed the water cycle we refered to the vocabulary list in order to help students grasp new vocabulary. This we hoped would reinforce the visual with the written word.
Finally, we gave them the following in-class assignment.
Draw a diagram showing how you think water gets to the faucets and toilets at Dorcas Place. Don't forget to show where it comes from. Label your drawing.
Daily review was the concluding activity of each day.
