Your task: Plan a cross-curricular mini-project. Your mini-project should incorporate some of the techniques you have seen on the course so far. Complete the table below.

Topic and project title
The water cycle (Natural Science)
Your subject area: How will the project fit with your subject?
The water cycle is one of the curricular annual contents for 3º Primary grade in Natural Science subject
Who are you doing the project with?
This project is suitable for students of 3º grade
Learning objectives
-         Distinguish different types of water: fresh water and salt water.
-         Seeing the differences between the states of water: liquid, solid and gas.
-         Knowing the importance of water for our daily life.
-         Discovering that water is continuously changing its place in nature.
Anticipated problems (and solutions)
There are two grade repeaters with several difficulties with the foreign language.
I will adapt all the water cycle’s language in a more simple way for them to be able to understand the whole process.

Teach your mini-project. Reflect on how it went. Be prepared to give feedback.

Group and date taught

3º grade. February 2018.
What did you do?

1.       Happy Learning video.
2.       This is the water cycle wheel. If you turn the first part, you will see the different parts of it: condensation, precipitation…
3.       This is a sheet of paper to work on the water cycle processes: transpiration, condensation, evaporation, accumulation and precipitation. This way we can connect the Arts & Crafts lesson with Natural Science’s one.
4.       Experiment: I will bring an ice, a match, a bottle and a balloon. I will saw the students the three states using examples.
What went well

Every activity went well, but what they liked most is the experiments activity in wich they saw how ice melts and becomes liquid water and how that bottle heats and the balloon gets filled with gas.
Even the students with problems with foreign language could attend the lesson, because it’s mostly visual methodology.
Reflection for future practice
What needed improvement/changes and why

We can try to think an easier way to do the experiment, because the time we spent until the bottle heated, was more than what I expected at the beginning.

What would you change considering level,  age or other factors

I find the activities very suitable for students in this grade, but it is also possible to do it in the 2º and 4º grades, adapting the language used and changing the 3 activity for another one with more simple vocabulary.
