Excursion to a natural waterfall

We walked from our school to the beautiful waterfall in Préjano… What a nice walk!! We wanted to discover the natural path of a river and observe first hand a beautiful fall of water.

We could read a lot of information from a big board but one of our collegues’ father explained how water follows its own course and the effects it has. We could see how water dissapears in the underground course and then appears again a little bit further and so many more things! Thank you for your collaboration!

State of Matter

After studying how important the water is in our lives and observing where we can find it, our kids wanted to discover more. So we experimented the different States of the water: Gas, Solid and Liquid.

We also worked on several terms such as evaporation and condensation, freezing and melting, sublimation and deposition.

So firstly, we observed liquid water into a bucket. We touched it and talked about where we can find it in this way in our environment. Then we put it into the freezer and in few hours we could saw solid water. Again we touched it and talked about where we can find it in this way. After that, we put it outside in the sun, so it turned again into liquid. Finally we put some water in the microwave and we could observe it was gas when one of the pupils put his misted glasses on… We laughed a lot!! hahaha!!

Our world is full of water

Did you know that 3 parts out of 4 in our world is water? That is what we discovered with a beautiful tale about The Earth.

Five continents surrounded by water … Where can we find it? What is important for? How can we use it? We tried to answer these questions and we also talked about the water cycle…

Finally we made this art… Isn´t it nice? Enjoy it!
