Favorite kind of weather instead of season!"Such a fun art and writing idea - have student write about their favorite season, then draw what they would see out their window in that season. They can then "hang curtains" on their window.
have the umbrella have a number on it on a board, hand each kid a few raindrops and then call up the number on the umbrella. say "who has 'one' raindrop" they will come up, find and place it on umbrella w matching number.
One of our favorite water cycle illustrations, especially for younger students. The image of the sun's rays reaching down to draw up water is a great way to represent evaporation. It highlights the driving force of the sun.
