Water Cycle Paragraph

Write a well-developed paragraph about the Water Cycle. You should include a definition of the Water Cycle and details about each stage that we have studied. Your paragraph should include at least five sentences.

Remember to ask yourself these questions:

  • Have I indented?

  • Does my paragraph begin with a topic sentence?

  • Have I included capital letters and ending punctuation?

  • Do all my sentences begin the same way?

  • Are my sentences different lengths?


Essay example1

Essay Example…

Topic Sentence 

Sentence Variety

Indent 

The water cycle provides the world with water. The first stage in the water cycle is evaporation. Evaporation is when liquid is taken from the earth and sent to the clouds as gas or vapor. The second stage is called condensation. Condensation is when the gas or vapor in the clouds get cold and heavy until the cloud can’t hold the condensation anymore. Which brings us to our next stage, precipitation. Precipitation is when the gas or vapor in the clouds turn to a liquid and fall from the sky. Our last stage in the water cycle is accumulation. Accumulation is when the precipitation on the ground runs down to a body of water and then the cycle starts all over again.

Beautiful Wording and Clarity!

 A+ 100% 

Capital Letters
