[00:00:25.080]Hi, I am LaShanna and it is a beautiful day.
[00:00:27.860]Today I'm going to show you how to make a water cycle
[00:00:30.730]in a bag.
[00:00:31.630]Here's what you need,
[00:00:37.045]a cup of water, food coloring,
[00:00:42.310]a permanent marker,
[00:00:50.910]and a towel so you don't get your table dirty.
[00:00:57.210]first off, I am going to draw,
[00:01:14.530]and a lake.
[00:01:21.950]And don't forget to put fish in your lake.
[00:01:48.240]Here's what I drew.
[00:01:53.370]Now, for the water, we're going to take our food coloring
[00:02:01.100]we, could have used blue, so it would be a blue lake,
[00:02:04.970]but we didn't have any, so we're gonna use green.
[00:02:09.120]One drop of green food coloring.
[00:02:13.300]I'm going to stir that in.
[00:02:17.390]Can you do it without food coloring?
[00:02:20.290]And yes, you can do it without food coloring,
[00:02:24.750]if you use coloring,
[00:02:26.420]you can see it a bit better than clear water.
[00:02:34.660]we're gonna fill up
[00:02:41.460]Parents, you might wanna help your child on this,
[00:02:44.930]also might wanna do it over a sink.
[00:03:00.160]There we go, and then you're gonna seal it back up.
[00:03:10.620]Take two pieces of tape,
[00:03:15.300]and put them in the corner of your bag
[00:03:18.800]and make sure that you'll be able to put it on something.
[00:03:30.350]It's hanging off the edges.
[00:03:36.590]let's take this over to the window.
[00:03:39.210]We're going to place it where the Sun can heat up the water.
[00:03:48.080]we placed this one, a couple of hours ago in the window,
[00:03:52.890]and, the water would evaporate
[00:03:57.230]and turn into a cloud,
[00:03:59.060]and then the cloud would rain and the rain would go back
[00:04:03.070]into the lake,
[00:04:04.600]and then this water cycle would continue
[00:04:08.510]if you leave it in your window.
