Water Cycle Scupture

In November, Bethany created a sculpture of the water cycle. She made her extra credit project at home with tissue, blank paper, pipe cleaners, glitter, and crayons.

The water cycle can start with evaporation. Water is evaporated and becomes water vapor. Then it condenses into clouds. When the clouds get heavy enough, it rains. The water flows down into rivers which can flow into the ocean!


  1. Dear Bethany,

    We love how you made the sculpture! You put a lot of time into it.

    We love the pipe cleaners. It really looks like rain, the river, and lightning.

    Your water cycle sculpture is a fun way to learn about water.

  2. Dear Bethany,

    I was very impressed by your Water Cycle project. What a great way to remember something from Science. It is very creative. I am going to show it to my class tomorrow.

  3. Dear Bethany,

    Your enthusiasm for learning and creativity is inspriring.

    I love your water cycle. It is very original. You must have put a lot of time and effort into builing it.

    Keep up the meaningful work.
    I can't wait to see what you will
    do next!!

    Best wishes,

    Mrs. Levenson

    Keep up the meaningful work.

  4. Nice sculpture. It's often easier to remember things when they're shown in three dimensions rather than in a drawing. :)

  5. Wow! How impressive your array displays are. My second grade class will be introduced to this later on this year and your blog will be first on the list to share with them. Thanks!

  6. Dear Bethany,

    I love the idea of making a water sculpture to help kids learn. Keep up the good work!
