The Water Cycle was created in the spring of 2008 and is featured on the playground of PS 503 in Brooklyn. Groundswell artists Clare Herron and Chris Beck worked with third grade students to create a series of mosaic benches and flower planters for the school. The students were divided into five groups, with each group assigned a section of the water cycle, including sun, clouds, precipitation, runoff, and evaporation. The children learned about the process that water goes through and how it is recycled, which helped them understand the effects of water pollution and conservation. Drawings from each team were replicated in mosaic form on three benches and two flower planters, which are the perfect complement to the schoolyard.
