Library Learning Patch - Children Discovering Nature

Week 17 - Water

This week's lesson focused on water.  Drip Drop, Water's Journey explained the processes water goes through before we can drink it.. They children learned all about precipitation, evaporation and condensation.  They learned that only a very small percentage of  the water on earth is drinkable. In our garden we use the bucket method for the children to water, thereby doing our part to conserve water.

Wow-a lot happens before we can drink.

The garden continues to flourish. As you can see, we had a very good harvest this week. So far no zucchini--lots of blooms, but no squash yet. The tomatoes are ripening, the peppers are still producing, and the summer squash are producing. We also harvested our herbs--rosemary, thyme, and basil.

Next week we will make our lap books--the children will make minibooks for each of our lessons and  place them in their lap book.
