Watercycle I I

  1. 1. Water, Water Everywhere!
  2. 2. How Much Water is on Earth? <ul><li>Water covers 70% of the earth's surface. </li></ul><ul><li>Water is stored in lakes, glaciers, underground, or in living organisms. </li></ul><ul><li>The Earth has only a limited amount of water </li></ul>
  3. 3. Where Does Water Come From? <ul><li>The Earth’s Water is recycled, which means that it is reused over and over. </li></ul><ul><li>Because water is always being reused, it has been around as long as the Earth has. </li></ul><ul><li>The water in your drinking class could be the same water George Washington drank! </li></ul>
  4. 4. How is Water Recycled? <ul><li>Water is continuously circling from land, to sky and back again. </li></ul><ul><li>This journey is called the Water Cycle! </li></ul><ul><li>The Water Cycle has no beginning or end! </li></ul>
  5. 5. How Does the Water Cycle Work? <ul><li>During the water cycle, the sun heats the Earth's surface, causing water to evaporate and rise to the atmosphere. </li></ul><ul><li>There, it cools and condenses into liquid droplets. </li></ul><ul><li>These droplets fall to the earth as precipitation. </li></ul><ul><li>Water is then collected in rivers, streams, oceans, plants and and animals. </li></ul><ul><li>The Cycle then starts all over again! </li></ul>
  6. 6. How Does Water Change During Each Stage? <ul><li>When water evaporates it heats up and turns to gas. </li></ul><ul><li>While in the atmosphere, this gas cools and forms into clouds. </li></ul><ul><li>Clouds grow and during precipitation water falls as either liquid (rain) or solid (snow/ice) </li></ul>
  7. 7. How Does This Water Get to My Kitchen Faucet? <ul><li>Water is collected in rivers, lakes, wells and reservoirs. </li></ul><ul><li>Public drinking water systems pump water through an underground network of pipes. </li></ul><ul><li>Big pipes deliver water to each neighborhood, and then the water is split into medium pipes and smaller pipes for each street and each home. </li></ul>
