Afterschool Pathway: Evapo-rama!

In "Evapo-rama!" kids explore evaporation and the water cycle not just in the desert, but right in their own neighborhood, too. This pathway was designed as a sequence that pairs together a PLUM LANDING animation and a related hands-on activity with several extension ideas, providing approximately one hour of programming.

Start out by having kids watch The Lost Lake, a short animated video about the fate of water in the desert. Then, head outdoors for the related hands-on activity Evaporation Station. If time permits, wrap up your day by completing one or more of the "Explore Some More" activities listed with both.
