Investigating Rivers and Streams with Miss Cooper
The children brain-stormed all their ideas about rivers and streams
Then we did an experiment to find out what makes water flow fast or slow down a mountain.
We found out that the taller the mountain the faster the water flow, and the lower the slope the slower the flow.
Next we shared all our observations and asked questions.
How did water get on the planet in the first place?
What if there was no water?
Does water have a colour?
How are rivers and streams made?
After that, we talked about how water causes erosion of the land, and shared our thinking through drama.
We decided that we needed to find out more about the water-cycle.
Lastly, to show our understanding we completed a mixed up water-cycle activity.
