Learners will see a video about rain. The video will be paused to allow time to process concepts and discuss concepts. They will learn the words evaporation, condensation, and precipitation. We will discuss ways you can see evaporation and condensation in your own kitchen. They will then deepen their understanding by creating a rain cloud in a cup. Using a cup of water, shaving cream and food coloring, students will see the concept of rain come alive before their eyes. name...
1. Students will be introduced to the words evaporation, condensation, and precipitation. 2. Students will explore their sense of wonder about why it rains. 3. Students will create a rain cloud to deepen their understanding of why it rains.
The following activities are optional and can be completed to deepen understanding and continue the creative process: 1. Recreate the rain cloud and rain in a cup experiment for a friend or family member and explain why it rains. 2. Put a pot of water on the stove until it boils to show the concept of evaporation. Put a lid on the pot to show the concept of condensation.
