W-Water Unit Plan

Here's the plan for W-Water unit. My biggest challenge would be how to explain living water to the spirit to a 5 year old. hmm.
 Here are my planned activities:
Water as Liquid 
-Read Helen Frost's Water as Liquid 
-putting liquid in different containers, showing that liquid conforms to containers 
-guess which container has more water 
-Make chart for liquid/solid/gas 

Water as Solid 
-Read Helen Frost's
Water as Solid
-Make paper snowflakes 
-Rising Ice experiment

Water as Gas 
-Read Helen Frost's Water as Gas and Water Cycle 
-Water cycle explanation and showing (ideas from here
-Rain in a jar experiment 

 Other activities 
-Soap-powered boat experiment
-Snack ideas: popsicles?
-Telling the story of Woman at the Well (and coloring) for day 1

Booklist (besides Helen Frost's)
Let's Try It Out in the Water by Semour Simon and Nicole Fauteux 
I get Wet Vicki Cobb
Make Way for the ducklings 

 But I get a feeling the HF's books are all I'm getting...Recently the library has been very slow in processing my requests.
Bible Verse:
John 7:37-38
Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them
