What is the water cycle?
The water cycle is a continuous process of
PRECIPITATION and COLLECTION
The water cycle
When it is hot Water from the sea evaporates.
The water vapour condenses into tiny drops and
When the clouds are cold, it rains or snow.
The rain or snow falls into the sea.
Water on Earth is always changing
state and place. The water cycle.
When the Sun heats water, water vapour
When the water vapor cools, it turns into
water drops and form clouds.
The wind moves the clouds. When the
clouds cool, water from the clouds falls as
rain. If it is very cold, the water freezes
and falls as snow. Rain and snow are both
types of precipitation.
The water that falls to the ground eventually
goes into rivers. It can travel to the rivers across
the surface of the Earth or underground. Rivers
take the water back to the ocean and seas.
