What Is There To Learn About Water?

My students need 2 book sets about water and a Water Science Tub Exploration Kit.

Do you remember learning about water in science in kindergarten? I don't specifically, but I want my students to remember. I teach kindergarten in a high-poverty, high-need community in Texas.

My students love books and love to learn new things. I call them Super Scientists and we learn and make discoveries each day. Water is a fascinating topic because they all know what it is, but haven't learned about the properties of water and how interesting it can be.

With the books in these 2 book sets, my students will learn about water with pictures and words that will be memorable. The Water Science Tub will make a great class project for doing experiments with water. Students will love helping, questioning, and working together as they learn.

I want my students to remember science in kindergarten. In order to do this, I need colorful, educational, hands-on resources to keep them engaged in learning. Please help make this possible for my students.
