St George's Day Reading Comprehension:
The Water Cycle
WALT: Understand and explain the water cycle.
Using the links below, study the water cycle to identify the main stages.
Can you now:
- Label a diagram of the water cycle? (See link below)
- Create the water cycle in a bag? (See link below)
- Create your own 3D model of the water cycle?
Complete the activities above and send in a picture of what you have done to your teacher.
WALT: Identify the different layers of a soil profile.
Wherever you stand on the Earth - even if you are on a ship in the middle of the sea - there is rock somewhere beneath you. You are on solid ground.
You might be thinking, wait a minute... the school field isn't a rock, nor is the park or the garden. That's because the rock is covered with a layer of earth or soil. If you dig down through this soil, you will find rock under it - everywhere.
See the PowerPoint below for more information and your task.
