On Friday, September 29th, third graders at The Chapel School visited The Stepping Stones Museum for Children, in Norwalk, Connecticut. In addition to exploring hands-on activities in various exhibit galleries, the children enhanced their trip with a Water Cycle workshop. The students developed an understanding of weather by experiencing the water cycle and exploring when and where they see the steps of the water cycle in everyday life.
The students discovered the essential role that water plays in our lives by exploring the water cycle. They experimented with evaporation and condensation and learned how water affects the world in which we live. The students observed where and in which forms water can be found. They also organized data that they collected and analyzed a poem to review each part of the cycle. They experimented with evaporation and condensation, and learned how water affects their world.
