Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum/Water Cycle Lab
We spent a wonderful afternoon at the Hands-On Museum! First, we spent about 1/2 hour exploring the water room.
Then it was time for our lab - which lasted about an hour. This was an enjoyable, hands-on, and educational lesson on the water cycle. We learned terms like "porous" and "non-porous", became part of the water cycle, and even made our own clouds! At the end, we danced to the "water cycle boogie".
The four adults split the children into groups of 5 children each, and then explored the museum at a leisurely pace. Many, many thanks to Pare Gerou and Karen Bayoneto, our great parent volunteers. Please thank them in person the next time you see them - they allowed us to be able to go with just one bus, and also enabled us to keep a super watchful eye on everyone.
