Welcome to Unit 7: Water

In this unit, children will learn about water and its properties through hands-on exploration. We will learn about substances that dissolve or expand in water. Lastly, we will learn how important water is in our daily lives and how it helps living things survive.

Our focus questions will be:

• Where can we find water?

• What happens to water when it changes temperature?

• What happens when we put things in water?

• How does water help us?

Family Engagement:

-Talk to your child about water changing from liquid to solid and vice versa. Demonstrate by making ice cubes with them.

-Talk about animals that live in water.

-During bath time, have children predict if their toys will sink or float.

-Talk about all the uses of water in the home.

Music with Ms. Shannon

As part of our water unit, we are going to create water xylophones using small glass jars and colored water. We will explore the different sounds created by the water xylophones, and create our own songs using these sounds. We will also learn a variety of songs about water and sea creatures, such as “Baby Beluga”, “Down By The Bay”, and “Galumph Went The Little Green Frog”.
