Follow a River Demonstration 

This spring 1st Grade students in Ms. Kolb’s reading group read the book Follow a River. After reading and learning new vocabulary words like source, bend, rapids, waterfall and flow they went out to the playground and made their own river. They labeled the parts of the river as they made them and
then watched the water flow from the source all the way to the mouth of the river and ocean. After the demonstration they wrote together a summary of what happened to the river using the river words that they learned and sequence words like first, then and finally!
