Back in July Hailey was working on a science journal. She had wanted to do school all summer long, but then soon after this activity she decided she needed some time off and we never came back and finished our study of clouds. Here is what we did back in July:
Hailey filled out her Observing Nature sheet and she took some pictures of the clouds in the sky.
We read this book about clouds.
Then she cut out some pieces to make a poster about the water cycle.
It turned out so cute! (Printables found at The First Grade Parade.)
Then yesterday while Hailey was off of school (and wanted to do a day of homeschooling to see what it would be like) we did this science experiment:
Cut a 2 liter bottle in half. Put warm water in the bottom, we added blue food coloring to pretend it was the ocean, but that is not necessary. In the top of the bottle add ice, then put the top of the bottle into the bottom of the bottle as pictured. After a little while condensation will start to build up and later on in the day we had enough condensation that it actually “rained” a little bit.
