    • Clouds are made of tiny drops of water or ice.
    • Do you remember the Water Cycle ?
    • Precipitation When drops get big and heavy, they fall from the clouds as precipitation. Precipitation is rain, snow, or hail. Evaporation When water evaporates it turns into water vapor. Condensation Water vapor condenses into tiny droplets. The droplets form clouds.
