The Water Cycle 2.04

  1. 1. The Water Cycle What is it and how does it work?
  2. 2. The Water Cycle Condensation Water Vapor Evaporation Water Precipitation Transpiration Run off
  3. 3. Word 1. Water cycle Definition The recycling of water through the environment Picture
  4. 4. The water cycle begins with water. Water is found in many places. A few of them are as follows: Lakes, rivers, oceans, ponds, puddles, reservoirs, and many other places.
  5. 5. One stage of the water cycle is evaporation. This is a process where the water is heated and turned into a water vapor. The sun is the main heat source for this process.
  6. 6. Word 2. Evaporation Definition This is a process where the water is heated and turned into a water vapor. Picture
  7. 7. Another stage of the water cycle is transpiration. This is a process where the water evaporates from plant leaves and turns to water vapor. The sun is the main heat source for this process.
  8. 8. Word 3. Transpiration Definition This is a process where the water in tree leaves evaporate and turn into water vapor. Picture
  9. 9. The next stage is condensation. This is where warm and cold air collide and form ice crystals that condense and form droplets of water. These water droplets eventually become to heavy and begin to fall in the form of precipitation.
  10. 10. Word 4. Condensation Definition When water cools down and condenses back into a liquid Creates clouds and/or fog Picture
  11. 11. Word 5. Precipitation Definition When the water droplets become too heavy and they fall to Earth Can be rain, sleet, hail or snow Picture
  12. 12. Precipitation can fall to Earth in the form of snow, hail, rain, sleet, or glaze.
  13. 13. The next stage is run-off. The water seeps through the soil and ends up in the water table. It then flows into the streams, lakes, oceans, and other bodies of water. The process is then repeated again and again.
  14. 14. Word 6. Run - off Definition Water flowing into streams and rivers and eventually making its way to the oceans Picture
  15. 15. Now you’re ready for the little quiz! On the next page, label the water cycle correctly using the following words: evaporation, run-off (2 times), condensation (2 times) , precipitation and transpiration
