Watercycle

  1. 1. The Water Cycle Write On Grade 3-4
  2. 2. Learner Expectation Content Standard: 8.0 Atmospheric Cycles The student will investigate the relationships among atmospheric conditions, weather, and climate. Learning Expectations 8.3 Recognize the basic features of the water cycle.
  3. 3. In this activity you will: Recognize the basic parts of the water cycle Write a paragraph about the water cycle and draw a picture of what happens.
  4. 4. Evaporation Evaporation is the changing of a liquid into a gas. You must have heat in order for a liquid to evaporate.
  5. 5. Condensation Condensation is the changing of a gas into a liquid. When water vapor cools, the water changes form and becomes liquid water.
  6. 6. Condensation Clouds form as water vapor cools and forms water drops. Small drops bump into each other forming large drops. When the drops are too big and heavy, they fall as rain.
  7. 7. Precipitation Precipitation is water that falls to Earth as either rain, snow, sleet, or hail. Rain is just water drops falling down from the clouds.
  8. 8. Water Cycle The water cycle is the path that water follows as it moves from the air to the ground and back to the air over and over again. In the water cycle, water goes through evaporation, condensation, and precipitation.
  9. 9. Water Cycle Check out this link for an illustration of the water cycle. http://www.natick.k12.ma.us/schools/johns
