Water Can Be... written by Laura Purdie Salas is a delightful read for use in science or language arts and will broaden student understanding of the many uses and roles of water in our lives. I use it in this lesson plan as an introductory lesson to water or to seasons, or simply used in language arts to address Common Core standards while reinforcing science concepts. This lesson plan is directed toward k-2 with targeted Common Core standards for literacy listed for each grade level. The lesson plan includes 2 teacher keys and a worksheet template for the independent study.
