I wrote this rap for my pupils at school when we were doing a topic about weather. I was teaching them how the water cycle worked. We made percussion instruments and created a dance to these words. We then performed it for parents. The children certainly knew about the water cycle by the time we had finished.
Fog and ice, snow and rain,
What comes down goes up again.
Thunder, lightning, sunshine, hail.
Gusting winds blow up a gale.
Thick black clouds grow up above
Torrential rain has caused a flood.
Sunshine peeping out once more
Evaporates the water store.
Gaily dancing snowflakes fall,
Building drifts against the wall.
Sunshine peeping from the sky
Evaporates the snow up high.
Hailstones big as footballs pounce,
Like stones upon the ground they bounce
Sunshine sees them lying there
Evaporates them into air.
Snow and hail, rain and sleet
Precipitation’s quite a feat
Sunshine’s ever glowing rays
Complete the water cycle maze.
