Water Cycle

As part of our Pre School Curriculum we did water cycle.

We coloured and pasted the water cycle on the Environmental studies book.

Then we watched a power point presentation on water cycle. Explained to her how this cycle happens with the permission of Allaah and He is in control of all the things and only Allaah sends down rain to us.

Then we read the story of Drippy online here

Then we also did a water cycle wheel which could be downloaded here Insha Allaah!

We did a small experiment to understand water cycle. This was easy and she really understood the theory masha Allaah. Details of the experiment could be found here Insha Allaah. Here is what we did.

Poured bit of water on to a small dish, and gave her a cotton ball to hold in the hand and said imagine the dish is a river and the cotton ball is the cloud.

Then asked her to slowly place the cotton ball in the dish and asked her to observe.

Then she told me all the water has been sucked up by the cotton ball, here I explained due to heat of the sun the water from the river evaporates and goes up to the cloud. I asked her to hold the cotton ball and we saw the the water dripping! Then explained to her when the cloud cannot hold the water then the water drips and she said ah that's rain! Then she squeezed the cotton ball and was so happy and was saying see rain Ummi!

Later during the day I heard her telling her bunny "When the cloud cannot hold the water it comes down as rain bunny!"
