For our Spring Project, we learned about how water shapes our land, the water cycle, and natural disasters caused by water. Here’s some of the work we did:
First, a look at how water shapes our land. Through erosion, deposition, sediment, and weathering, the forces of water shape the land around us in a cycle:
Next, how the water cycle works: Condensation, precipitation, collection/runoff, and evaporation/transpiration… and then back to condensation and the cycle continues.
We also worked on a class quilt for the water cycle. We each drew a square illustrating one of the steps of the water cycle, and then combined it together into a quilt.
Ahndy draws precipitation, complete with a shark in the ocean:
Myla is working on evaporation:
And here’s the finished complete quilt:
In other exciting news, President Obama wrote to our class! We wrote him letters as part of our Fall Project on endangered animals. Here’s his letter:
And he also sent us some pictures of his family and their pet dog:
