This is an original eight page cut-and-staple style book describing the steps of the water cycle at a second, third, or fourth grade level.
Students will show their understanding by illustrating the steps described and defining key words of your choice in the glossary on the final page.
The book could be used as a whole class activity or a science center.
A two page vocabulary sheet is also included. This could be used to create flashcards if desired. It can also be used as a reference sheet throughout your unit or to differentiate the glossary writing portion of the book-making activity.
When completed, you can send the final product home for students to practice reading at home or for them to use to teach their families what they know about the water cycle.
The cover page is hand-drawn. If you and your students enjoy this product, please consider following my store.
I have been teaching elementary school in an urban district in Massachusetts for six years. I began my career teaching in first grade and have now transitioned into second grade. I especially enjoy creating engaging book studies and center activities for my students.
I believe in providing my students with plenty of positive reinforcement and a variety of ways to access any and all academic content. My lessons incorporate authentic, hands-on, and cooperative learning experiences whenever possible, and I provide many opportunities to build reading and writing skills across all content areas.
I hold a bachelor's degree from Clark University where I majored in Psychology and minored in Education and Sociology. My master's degree is in Teaching and is also from Clark University.
