Water cycle power point

  1. 1. Table of Contents: Click on the picture next to each topic to discovermore about the water cycle! After you’ve looked at each section, practice what you’ve discovered by learning The Water Cycle Song! Enjoy your journey!! Evaporation & Transpiration Condensation Precipitation Putting it all together: THE WATER CYCLE The Water Cycle Song
  2. 2. Evaporation & Transpiration Both are caused by the sun’s heat. Retur HOME n to Table of
  3. 3. Evaporation Water begins its journey as a liquid in streams, rivers, ponds, lakes, and oceans…even puddles! Itis in a liquid state and sitson the earth because it is heavier than air. Retur n to Table of
  4. 4. EvaporationWhen the sun heats up the water, the water turns intovapor (tiny molecules of water) and heads for the sky. When water evaporates it is lighter than air. Retur n to Table of
  5. 5. TranspirationJust as we sweat, so do plants! Retur n to Table of
  6. 6. Transpiration Plants absorb water from the soil. Each plant will use thewater that it needs to help it grow. As extra water travels through the plant and to its leaves, it is pulled out andevaporated into the air. This process is called transpiration. Transpiration Retur n to Table of
  7. 7. Condensation Retur n to Table of
  8. 8. CondensationDid the water leak through the glass? No! It came from the air! Water vapor in the air became cooler when ittouched the cold glass, causing it to became liquid again! Retur n to Table of
  9. 9. CondensationWhen water vapor goes up into the air, it becomes colderand gathers with millions of other tiny molecules of water to create all of the beautiful clouds in our skies! Retur n to Table of
  10. 10. CondensationDid you notice something about the process of condensation? It is the OPPOSITE of evaporation! Why is that?! Retur n to Table of
  11. 11. PrecipitationSome things are just too heavy to hold! Retur n to Table of
  12. 12. PrecipitationWe get precipitation when so much condensed water has become too heavy for the atmosphere to hold on to. Retur n to Table of
  13. 13. Precipitation The clouds get so packed with water molecules that theybecome heavy and much colder. As the evaporation cools, it turns back into water and falls down to the ground. Retur n to Table of
  14. 14. Precipitation SnowRain Hail Sleet Retur n to Table of
  15. 15. Precipitation Retur n to Table of
  16. 16. Retur n toTable of
  17. 17. Now, let’s put it all togetherWater Cycle! Thus, completing The into The Water Cycle …that goes into the air and …and precipitates condenses…First, we get heat it cools and once becomes heavy… from the sun… …then collects in …which evaporates and on the earth. the water… Retur n to Table of

  19. 19. What does this all mean?What IS The Water Cycle? Retur n to Table of
  20. 20. The Water Cycle Song Practise this song! Set to “She‟ll Be Coming „Round the Mountain” Water travels in a cycle, yes it does! (In class, we‟ll hold hands and walk in a circle) Water travels in a cycle, yes it does! (In class, we‟ll hold hands and walk in a circle) Retur n to Table of
  21. 21. The Water Cycle Song It goes up as evaporation (hands straight up) Retur n to Table of
  22. 22. The Water Cycle Song Forms clouds of condensation (hands clasp together) Retur n to Table of
  23. 23. The Water Cycle Song Falls down as precipitation, yes it does!(Bring hands down & wiggle, imitating rainfall) Retur n to Table of
  24. 24. THE END You have successfully completedthis presentation on The Water Cycle! Retur n to Table of
