Water travels in a cycle, yes it does! | Juan Cabrillo

Feb 3, 2017

What a beautiful day, rain pattering peacefully in the garden, nourishing the plants with earth water. With the first graders, we discussed the water cycle and how it is Earth’s way of recycling this precious resource. We sang a song to help remember each step and then filled out a chart to draw what happens when water evaporates, condensates and precipitates.
