The water cycle

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.


The water cycle

The next stage is EVAPORATION. This is a process where the water is heated and turned into a water vapor (gas state). The sun is the main heat source for this process.


The water cycle

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 too heavy and begin to fall in the form of precipitation.


The water cycle

The next stage is PRECIPITATION. This is water falling to the earth in the form of snow, hail, rain, or sleet.


The water cycle

The final stage is PERCOLATION (runoff). The water seeps through the soil and ends up in the water table. It then flows (or runs off) into the streams, lakes, oceans, and other bodies of water. The process is then repeated again and again.

Water Cycle Song(to the tune of “She’ll Be Coming Around the Mountain”)

Water travels in a cycle, yes it does.

Use pointer finger to draw large circle in air.

Water travels in a cycle, yes it does.

Repeat above motion.

It goes up as evaporation,

Raise arms at side with palms up.

Forms clouds as condensation,

Brings hands together above head, forming large cloud shape with arms.

Then falls down as precipitation, yes it does.

Slowly lower arms at side with palms down, fingers moving.
