The Ripple Effect

by: Joanne Toft and Kathy Scoggin

Thomas Locker’s book about nature entitled Water Dance (1997) provides the basis for this interdisciplinary project on Earth’s water cycles. Through thoughtful consideration of the text and art in Water Dance, students build and express deeper understanding of the water cycle (and the elements within). In addition, they develop the disposition of questioning and thinking about their learning experiences in creative and expansive ways.
