Water Cycle in a Jar- Science Experiment

Another science experiment in a jar!  In March we did an experiment called Rainbow in a Jar to demonstrate different densities.  Last week we used a jar to demonstrate the water cycle.  

All we did was add some hot water.  We pretended this water was the ocean and it was warmed up by the sun.  Then we quickly place a plate on top of the mason jar to trap the water vapor that was rising.  We added a few clouds (ice cubes) on top of the plate and observed!  We had to wait and wait and wait very patiently until it started to rain.  We did have to wait about 10 minutes for it to start raining.  But when it finally did, all the kids squealed with excitement.  They loved it!  We reviewed our water cycle song while we did this fun experiment.  You can get both the science experiment and water cycle poem over at TPT.  Click here or on the picture below to download this freebie!
