This past week was all about weather. I started the lesson discussing vocabulary words. We played a matching game to review the words we learned!

My students used pictures to describe the different types of weather.

We discussed the water cycle and how rain happens. This experiment helped students visualized the concept!

Here are the steps to "Make it Rain in the classroom":

Fill a clear jar 3/4 full with water. Add shaving cream to the top. 
Allow the shaving cream to set for a minute or two. 
Add a few drops of blue food coloring to a little bit of water.
 Using a medicine dropper, drop the blue water into the shaving cream. 
You may have to push the dropper into the shaving cream. Keep adding drops until it "rains"

After the experiment, my students were water cycle experts! ;)

We made a cute craftivity to illustrate the concepts.

We ended the week with a weather report presentation. My classroom turned into "Canal 33" and my students were the the weather man!

They were well prepared after tracking the weather for a week!

I love to see my students learn and have fun at the same time!
You can find these activities here!
I will email my cute cloud craftivity to the first 3 followers that leave a comment. Make sure you are following my TpT store for more activities and my FB page for more pics!

Have a great weekend!
