Water makes up three-fourths of our planet and can be found everywhere we look: in oceans, lakes, rivers, ponds, and swimming pools. We use water in many different ways. It can be a solid, liquid or gas. The water cycle is continuous. Children will learn all this and more in this unit as we explore the wonders of water.
- Describe where water is found in the world and how we use it
- Explain how water changes, the forms it takes, and how it moves
- Understand how water moves through a cycle
- Compare various properties of water
I celebrate the end of our Water Works Wonder unit by inviting a speaker from the Department of Water to teach the children about water pollution and conservation.
