We Need Rain – Kindergarten Scientists In Action

Submitted by Margaret Hart

We kindergarteners in Mrs. Kasshoek’s class are still thinking like scientists as we learn what our trout need. Today we studied water molecules and rain. After brainstorming water and where we see it in nature, we charted it on a poster. Wow! People are made of water and we can make our own cloud on a spoon!

All of that studying made us ready to get up and move! We knew that water molecules get together to make a drop of water in a cloud.

Then when enough drops get together, they fall to the ground as rain.

It was so fun to make rain fall into streams and rivers and lakes for the fish and other animals to live in and for plants to grow.

There’s still enough time to form more drops of H20 before we go home.
