This 19-page pack includes the following printables:
Take a Closer Look...
Label the Water Cycle
This set includes a water cycle poster and Water Cycle Labeling activity to support preschoolers as they become familiar with what the water cycle is.
We suggest laminating your water cycle poster for durability to bring along when doing the experiments in this set.
The Label the Water Cycle activity can be laminated for repeat use or used as a cut and paste activity.
Pair this activity with a good book to learn all about the water cycle.
I Am the Rain by John Paterson is a fantastic book to pair with these activities.
Water Cycle in a Bag Observation
For this observation children will make a prediction then carry out the experiment and observe.
After their observation, preschoolers will record their observations by drawing a picture on the bottom of the observation sheet.
Puddle Evaporation Observation
The Puddle Evaporation Observation is an engaging way for preschoolers to observe evaporation.
Preschoolers start by making a hypothesis by drawing their puddle and predicting how their puddle will change in the designated time.
24 Hour Rain Collection Observation
Preschoolers will use the observation form to predict rainfall over 24 hours.
Set up a simple jar to collect rain and attach a ruler or use the included printable rain gauge.
After 24 hours children read the rain gauge and record the results on their observation form.
5-Day Rain Collection Observation
Track weather and precipitation over 5 days, how does it change each day? Record observations.
