    water cycle

    One idea is to build a terrarium in a clear container such as deli salads come in. Some grocery stores will even donate enough for the class. Put in some gravel, potting soil, a nice-sized piece of moss, and water, then seal it up. Have the students observe it for a few days then send it home. Another idea is to make a bracelet using a piece of rawhide cord and different colored beads to represent the different parts of the cycle. By touching the beads they can recite the cycle. Just knot the cord on either side of the beads and then tie the bracelet on. I used transluscent pony beads for mine. Betsy Zadorozny of Oklahoma gave us this idea in a workshop she did for us. She has books called EMERALDS, RUBIES, PEARLS, and so on that are chock full of great science ideas!
