Water Cycle- Evaporation

Yes, I admit it. I am addicted to pinterest.  I LOVE the ideas that I find on it.  And yes, I have another pinterest inspired project for you!

I thought this would be a really neat way to demonstrate evaporation to my kids. So here is the run down- I took my kids outside and let them pretend it rained by pouring a bucket of water on the ground. They then traced the outline of the puddle on the ground. We then went back to our literacy centers. Right before lunch I introduced this little ditty-


We went outside and lo and behold- the puddles were gone! Except for 3 that were in the shadows---I couldn't have planned it more perfectly myself! I used to hate teaching science, but blogging has opened my eyes to such creative teachers and now it is one of my favorite subjects! Thanks for the inspiration!
