Finn has been really interested in the science stuff he’s been learning at school. A few weeks ago he was telling us all about solids, liquids and gases, and he would put cups of water in the freezer to make ice and then set it out and let it melt back into a liquid.
Last week they learned about the water cycle and he brought home this poster he made and used it to explain the water cycle to me:
There’s a puddle. It goes up into the sun and comes into the cloud. It just d-pears (disappears). You can’t even see it.
It (the cloud) gets heavier, heavier, heavier. It starts to rain. It gets a puddle again and that’s it.
Not bad for a 5-year-old.
