      Water Curriculum Calendar
    The calendar below is to support teachers in planning for teaching the Water FOSS Science Kit. Use the calendar links below to identify: big science ideas, key standard targets for each lesson, and assessments. 
    Week 1 - Water Observations
    Do all liquids behave like water?  How does soap and salt affect water surface tension?  How does the size of the drop affect its motion on a slope?
     How does heat energy change the water?  How do we change liquids to solids?  
    How is an observation different than an inference?  Where does water go when it evaporates?  How does surface area affect evaporation?  
    What holds more water gravel or soil?  Can you design a water wheel that can lift a weight?
    Week 7 & 8 - Waterworks 
    Can you use evidence to describe how people effect the water quality in our community?  Can you design your own investigation about water?
