I found a delightful story that can help you teach your child the concept of water cycle. I found it on internet and am typing it here for easy and quick reference. Drippy the raindrop was having fun. He was busy doing his favourite thing, floating on the ocean.
Looking up, he smiled at his friend, Mr. Sun, who had just come up. As the day wore on, Mr. Sun rose higher and higher in the sky. Drippy became hot, very hot. Suddenly Drippy saw a cloud moving across the sky. Soon Drippy landed on the cloud and saw another drop wearing a cap.
So you have come for srippy cruise.
The Many Adventures of Drippy the Raindrop :: Resources :: Digital Chalkboard
Everyone calls me Captain Salty. If it gets rough, please feel free to leave the ship. Drippy fell to the ground along with rain.
He looked down to see a stream going through the trees in the mountain below. Drippt he landed on a tree and bounced from one leaf to another and fell to the ground.
The Many Adventures of Drippy the Raindrop
Sliding from rock to rock Drippy gently fell into the stream he had seen from the cloud. Drippy found a leaf floating on the water and climbed on it. Soon the stream merged with river and the river merged with the Ocean and Drippy was back home.
There are a lot of things you can discuss with the child after you have told the story. The heat of the sun causes him to evaporate and become a vapor that goes up and he becomes part of the cloud. 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.
Precipitation — What happens after a while in the dripoy Yes, it starts to bounce and shake. It gets very rainsrop now that Drippy is water — and all the rdippy raindrops that th 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.
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.
Take cotton balls, some flat pans or containers filled with little cold water. ralndrop
Give each child a cotton ball to hold. Tell them to pretend that they are holding a cloud.
Drippy the raindrop – To the mountains and back
Ask them how does the cloud feel: 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. What is happening with the water?
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!
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. Very Interesting story and nice illustrations idea.
