Water Action Science: Water Takes 3 Forms, Goes in A Cycle - Now You Do It!

by  Author Valerie Marsh

Program image

We challenge your students to melt an ice cube! This program
combines literature, sign language and science! Students 'become
molecules' and act out water's three forms while doing the signs for
solid, liquid, gas, and water!  Together we draw our "No Water" story. We act out the water cycle and explore ways to conserve water. This fun program is Hands-on interactive learning!

We will mail you all the fun supplies!
