Giant Pandas Sign up to get panda news from the Zoo. Giant pandas are black and white bears that live in temperate-zone bamboo forests in central China. Among the best recognized—but rarest—animals in the world, they have come to symbolize endangered species and conservation efforts. As few as 1,600 giant pandas survive in the mountain forests of central China. More than 300 pandas live in zoos and breeding centers around the world; most of these pandas are in China. Giant pandas Mei Xiang and Tian Tian are at the National Zoo under a Giant Panda Cooperative Research and Breeding Agreement, signed in January 2011, between the Zoo and the China Wildlife Conservation Association. Seeing Pandas at the Zoo Giant panda cub Bao Bao is now on exhibit! The panda house at the David M. Visitors will be allowed into the panda house on a first-come-first-served basis. Due to the expected number of visitors to see Bao Bao, Asia Trail will be open to one-way traffic only. It was an exciting day at the David M.

Eskeletons Lesson Plan - Create a Water Cycle Make a mini water cycle! We know that water can be a liquid, a gas, or a solid. Outside, water is always changing from liquid to gas and back again. This process is called the water cycle. You can see how the water cycle works. The Water Cycle The sun's heat causes water to evaporate from streams, lakes, rivers, and oceans. Create Your Own You will need: a large metal or plastic bowl a pitcher or bucket a sheet of clear plastic wrap a dry ceramic mug (like a coffee mug) a long piece of string or large rubber band water Put the bowl in a sunny place outside. The "mist" that forms on the plastic wrap will change into larger drops of water that will begin to drip. This experiment adapted from resources provided by the Monroe County Water Authority -

The Water Cycle © 2012 Purpose To help students understand the continuous cycle that water undergoes as it changes form. Context In this lesson, students build upon their previous investigations of water—and its different forms—by learning about the water cycle and its continuous flow around us. Students begin by reviewing what they already know about water and how it can freeze into ice or turn into a gas depending on how low or high temperatures become. In general, students at this level should already have an understanding of the following benchmark ideas: some events in nature have a repeating pattern—such as daily weather patterns or changes in temperature and the appearance of rain and snow at different times of the year; water can be a liquid or a solid and can go back and forth from one form to the other; and water left in an open container disappears, but water in a closed container does not disappear. Planning Ahead Motivation Begin by drawing attention to the glass of water.
