The roof’s are shining from the rain,
The sparrows twitter as they fly,
And with a windy April grace,
The little clouds go by.
Yet the back-yards are bare and brown,
With only one unchanging tree.
I could not be so sure of spring,
Save that it sings to me.
Sara Teasdale (1884-1933).

ON A RAINY DAY.
1. Measure rain: Use containers to measure the rainfall.
2. Hear rain music: place different size containers face down in the
rain. Listen for the different sounds it makes on each container.
3. Walk Outside: How does the rain feel on your face? Hold your tongue
out to taste the rain. Look at raindrops as they sit on leaves or other
objects. See if you can find a spider web with raindrops.What does it
AFTER THE RAINFALL.
Find a puddle and draw a chalk mark around it or mark it around with anchored string. How does the puddle change as it begins to dry? Where did the water in the puddle go? It was heated up by the sun into water vapor which floats back up into the atmosphere. This is called evaporation. The tiny vapor drops gather together in clouds and stay there until many of them accumulate. When they are heavy enough, they fall again as rain.
