In first grade, we watched two videos on how tadpoles turn into a frog and the life cycle of a butterfly.
In second grade, we started learning about aquatic environments, like marshes, swamps, and oceans. They finished watching a video about oceans.
In third grade, we took a quiz about weather and the water cycle. The students surprised me with their aptitude in these areas, despite our quick discussion of these concepts.
In fourth grade, we began making our own stories about the water cycle. I’m pleasantly surprised with how creative these students can be when left to their own devices. Students were asked to make a story that is fun to read but will also educate the reader about the water cycle. I have students writing stories about rain drops, and gas particles, and even Greek gods!
In fifth grade, we took our quiz on water, weather, and climate. Then we began learning about rocks and minerals.
