To use with Smartboards or other interactive whiteboard: "This flipchart can be used with Smartboard software or any interactive whiteboard as well when you download ActivInspire (it’s free). See below for directions.
The preview page is not the first page of the poem. The water cycle comes full "circle" in the poem.
The Water Cycle is a poem that I wrote. I have placed the poem in an illustrated flipchart and it is also in a word document (just poem). On the flipchart, the difficult vcoabulary words are highlighted so that you can hover over them and see the definitions.
You can turn the word document into a poster or have the student that makes the most impressive illustration the "class poster"
My thought was that you could have your students illustrate the poem from the word document if you do not have Activstudio.
That could be done after teaching the water cycle during centers, or just an extension of the lesson.
