Gold07: Let's Investigate Water - Step for Learning 7 (year 3)

This Step for Learning was produced in collaboration with the Geographical Association.

Key questions: What happens to the ground when it rains? What if the rain falls onto concrete or tarmac? Children conduct experiments: A “model mountain” to explore the effects of water. Exploring how water is absorbed by different surfaces. Children deepen their understanding of what happens when precipitation falls on the ground, and that the surface on which rain precipitates can have an effect on what happens to water.

The PDF provides notes for the teachers. It contains keywords and an index for the accompanying PowerPoint presentation.
