7 Humanities – Water cycle terrariums


Year 7 Humanities have moved on to the Geography component of the course. Our focus this term is “Water in the World”. To see the water cycle in action, students have spent time creating their own terrariums. The moisture from both the soil and plants evaporates in the elevated temperatures inside the enclosed terrarium. This water vapor then condenses on the walls of the cups and eventually falls back to the plants and soil below, representing a completely natural water cycle.
