is a great way to get your students to remember the rain cycle. I homeschool,
and this was how I got my K schooler to remember the rain cycle.
need a wire hanger, blue, yellow, white and gray construction paper, yarn.(cut
into various sizes)and glue.
With the blue construction paper, have your
students draw and cut out the pond and rain drops.(You might want to cut out the
rain drops if you have young students.) Draw and cut out the clouds, using the
white and gray construction papers. Draw and cut out the sun with the yellow construction
Take four pieces of yarn, about 6" long and glue to the back
of the gray cloud. Make sure that at least 5" is hanging down. Glue the rain
drops to the yarn and put aside to dry. Take a small piece of yarn and glue one
side to the sun and tie the other end to the hanger. Take two pieces of yarn the
same length, but longer that the one for the sun, and attach them to the clouds
and the hanger. Take a long piece of yarn, about 12" and attach the pond
to the hanger.
Have your students take their mobiles home, or hang them
in your classroom.
