  • I tried to follow the journey of the water drop (colored beads activity). What is supposed to happen when I click on one of the prompts like 'What do you want to be, etc.?' Are those slides supposed to be interactive? Thanks for replying.

Water Cycle Water Cycle Presentation Transcript

  • The Water Cycle
    • A Game
  • The Water Cycle The water cycle is the circulation of the earth's water, in which water evaporates from the sea into the atmosphere, where it condenses and falls as rain or snow, returning to the sea by rivers or returning to the atmosphere by evaporation. Also called the hydrologic cycle. http://www.thefreedictionary.com/water+cycle
  • The Water Cycle
    • The earth has a limited amount of water.  That water keeps going around and around and around and around and (well, you get the idea) in what we call the "Water Cycle".
    • This cycle is made up of a few main parts:
    • evaporation (and transpiration)
    • condensation
    • precipitation
    • collection
    • http://www.kidzone.ws/WATER/
  • Evaporation Evaporation is when the sun heats up water in rivers or lakes or the ocean and turns it into vapor or steam. The water vapor or steam leaves the river, lake or ocean and goes into the air. http://www.kidzone.ws/WATER/
  • Condensation Water vapor in the air gets cold and changes back into liquid, forming clouds. This is called condensation. http://www.kidzone.ws/WATER/
  • Precipitation Precipitation occurs when so much water has condensed that the air cannot hold it anymore.  The clouds get heavy and water falls back to the earth in the form of rain, hail, sleet or snow. http://www.kidzone.ws/WATER/
  • Collection When water falls back to earth as precipitation, it may fall back in the oceans, lakes or rivers or it may end up on land.  When it ends up on land, it will either soak into the earth and become part of the “ground water” that plants and animals use to drink or it may run over the soil and collect in the oceans, lakes or rivers where the cycle starts all over again. http://www.kidzone.ws/WATER/
  • The Water Cycle Go to http://www.brainpop.com/science/earthsystem/watercycle/ and watch the video. Use our school’s login and password. After watching the video, click on “quiz”, then click on “printed quiz.” Take the quiz and turn it in to your teacher. Next, you will take on the role of a drop of water.
  • The Water Cycle
    • You will take on the roll of a drop of water traveling throughout the water cycle.
    • You will create a bracelet, using beads, to document your trip through the water cycle. Please get a piece of string from your teacher.
    • Follow the directions on each slide, adding beads accordingly.
    • You will only visit 10 slides, so your bracelet will only have 10 beads.
  • The Water Cycle Where would you like to start? Ocean Lake River Glacier
  • Ocean Put a dark blue bead on your bracelet. You freeze and become part of a glacier. You evaporate and become part of a cloud.
  • Lake Add a green bead to your bracelet. You evaporate and become part of a cloud.
  • River You evaporate and become part of a cloud. You flow to the ocean. Add a purple bead to your bracelet.
  • Glacier You evaporate and become part of a cloud. You melt and become part of the ocean. Add a black bead to your bracelet.
  • Cloud Add a white bead to your bracelet. You fall to the earth as rain.
  • Rain Add a light blue bead to your bracelet. You fall to the earth into a lake. You fall to the earth into a river. You fall to the earth into the ocean. You are soaked up by the earth as ground water.
  • Snow Put a clear bead on your bracelet. You melt and become part of a lake. You melt and flow into a river. You freeze and become part of a glacier. You are soaked up by the earth as ground water.
  • ground water Add a brown bead to your bracelet. You become part of an ocean. You become part of a river.
