The Water Cycle Cloud Craft Online Story Preschool Lesson Plan Printable Activities Activities Materials Finally, a wonderful story about the water cycle for young children without the big words: condensation, evaporation, precipitation and the last one I always forget, collection!

These mouthfuls can be gently introduced after the story at your discretion, for children 3. Children 5 and 6 can definitely have an expanded introduction and presentation of these terms in a fun way.

Also read the content of the display posters that suggest different activities boiling some water to see evaporation, for example You can also put some of the pages together for a fun coloring book!

Evaporation: Drippy evaporates. The heat of the sun causes him to evaporate and become a vapor that goes up and he becomes part of the cloud. Condensation: Drippy is now in the cloud and meets another raindrop who has also evaporated -- Captain Salty.

While in the cloud, it is colder and Drippy is condensing and turns into water again read poster for activity that demonstrates condensation. Precipitation - What happens after a while in the cloud? Yes, it starts to bounce and shake.

It gets very heavy now that Drippy is water - and all the other raindrops that have accumulated have also turned into water the air cannot keep Drippy and the other raindrops up there. The cloud bounces and shakes - precipitates and Drippy and all the water in the clouds come down as rain drops or rainfall.

Now sometimes it comes down as rain, or it can be hail, sleet or snow, it just depends on how cold it is. Collection: Finally, Drippy ends up falling on a stream and then unto the river, which carries him back to the ocean and this will happen all over again -- this is called collection.

It is important to add that some of the rain will fall on land and become ground water - the water we, animals, and plants use. Give each child a cotton ball to hold. Tell them to pretend that they are holding a cloud. Ask them how does the cloud feel: heavy or light, soft or hard.

Instruct the children to place the "cloud" cotton ball gently over the cold water. Explain that water that has evaporated has traveled up to the cloud and it is a lot colder up in the sky, so the vapor turns into water, and it is filling up the cloud. Ask: Can you see the "cloud" cotton ball filling up with the water. Ask the children to gently pick up the "cloud" cotton ball from the pan. Ask: How does the "cloud" feel now? Light or heavy. Warm or cold? What is happening with the water? Yes, the water is dripping from the "cloud".

The cloud cannot hold all that water, is too, too, heavy. What do we call when water falls from the clouds because they are too heavy with water? Yes, you are right, rain! It is raining! And what happens to the water? Yes, it is coming right back into the pan, and the pan could be a stream, river, ocean or the ground.
