Water Cycle Activity that makes a great project for studying the water cycle! This dice simulation represents the way water droplets move throughout the water cycle with complete randomness. The movement based activity is a great way to get students ready to write about their learning with the included narrative prompt and rubric.
Looking for a way to integrate writing into your science curriculum?
This dice simulation is a great way to to reinforce the science concept of the water cycle while connecting it to writing. By performing the writing connection, students will cement their knowledge by writing creatively from the point of view of a water droplet.
My students love to complete the dice simulation, and I love the writing and science practice that they get out of it!
This simulation is a set of posters that you hang around the room and place a die by. Students are assigned a poster to start with and begin by rolling the die there. According to the number they roll they follow the directions on the poster, record their result, and travel to the next poster. This is done for as long as the teacher would like, or until students complete their recording sheet. Afterwards students write a narrative piece about their journey.
