Water K-2

About this Experience

The Water Assembly weaves the learning goals through a dynamic presentation that features student volunteers, large-scaled props, models and interactive demonstrations. Demonstrations look at how water changes in observable patterns during the Minnesota seasons. Observations about how liquids change shape or need a container to hold it give students a way to tell the difference between water - a liquid, and ice - a solid. The assembly also explores how people use water and impact water quality.
