Learning by Doing: Exploring The Water Cycle at Oak Hammock K-8

Oak Hammock K-8 middle school students in Ms. Savanello Mcquay’s Science class, were engaged in learning how water flows from state to state throughout the earth, known as the water cycle. Through kinesthetic learning, students learned about the water cycle by creating a model that emulated the water cycle process. For the duration of the unit, each day during science, students observed their model for changes and discuss the changes as a class. Being able to learn hands-on is especially important for the students because they were able to explore and experiment with the water cycle, by gaining a rewarding opportunity to visually see the water cycle on a smaller scale.
