Students will also learn the importance of conserving water. Plus, take an exciting trip through the water cycle! Make rain, yummy slushies, and more. Don’t miss this wet and wild adventure!

New absorbency station, density activity, evaporation experiment, and water cycle demonstration!

 

Field Trip on Demand Video Program Description:

Time warp from the 1940s to the present day—and back again—to help solve the case of the missing puddle in this adventure story that is sure to get your students excited about the science of liquids! From absorbency to evaporation to changing states of matter, your students will act as sleuths as they use their observation and inference skills to figure out just what happened to this missing puddle!

The Presenter was organized, energetic and helpful. All of us had a great two hours of learning and exploration.

Engaging activities that were well prepared and I loved that all the materials came with the presenter and I didn't have to gather anything.

M.W.School of Hope

I liked the centre approach and how each centre focused on a different concept. I also liked how all the centres had hands-on activities for the students to participate in.

Grade 2 TeacherMaryland Heights School

I like that the field trip was self-contained in the classroom! There was a great deal of variety in the stations and the Presenter was sensitive to the attention span of young students. Appropriate attention was placed on learner outcomes. It was a great opportunity for volunteers to see students in action!

Knowledge & Understanding

  • Describe the properties or states of water. (liquid, solid and gas)
  • Demonstrate an understanding that liquid water can be changed to other states.
  • Recognize that on cooling, liquid water freezes into ice and that on heating, it melts back into liquid water with properties the same as before.
  • Recognize that on heating. Liquid water may be changed into steam or water vapor and that this change can be reversed on cooling.
  • Identify examples in which water is changed from one form to another.
  • Predict that a wet surface will dry more quickly when exposed to wind or heating and apply this understanding to practical situations, such as drying of paints and hair etc.
  • Recognize that water is a component of many materials and of living things.
  • Recognize human responsibilities for maintaining clean supplies of water, and identify actions that are taken to ensure that water supplies are safe.
