Ms. Kathleen’s 2/3 Class: How water shapes our land, Water Cycle Quilt, and Pres. Obama’s letter!

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:

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:
