Read through carefully to answer the questions below.<br /><ul><li>What is an aquifer?
Where do you think a large amount of the water that gets evaporated comes from?
_______________________________________________________________</li></ul>8. http://www.waterencyclopedia.com/Po-Re/Precipitation-and-Clouds-Formation-of.html<br />*Above we have learned that evaporation supplies clouds with some of the necessary materials to form. Use this website to answer some of the following questions below about clouds. <br /><ul><li>Name as many types of clouds as you can find on this website?
Thunderstorms can be apart of the water cycle by allowing clouds to release the water from within. Name something interesting that you have read about from thunderstorms on this page.
