This book is a year-after-year favorite with teachers. It engagingly leads readers around the world following a drop of water-whether as steam or snow, inside a plant or animal, or underground-teaching the wonders and importance of the water cycle. (There’s lots of geography, too.) Four pages of science about the qualities of water are included.
A Teacher’s Guide about the water cycle based on A Drop Around the World is available as an ebook. This 48-page Guide by master teachers Bruce and Carol Malnor provides a unit plan as well as lesson plans on the qualities of water. It also includes background information and maps for the impact of water on the major world habitats including coasts, mountains, rivers, deserts, tropical rainforests, coral reefs, polar regions, and cities. This Guide is highly recommended for teaching the water cycle.
