The Water Cycle, Information report plan!

The Water Cycle, Information report plan!

The water cycle is a complicated process that water goes through. It gets recycled over time as there is no end to it. The steps that water experiences are: Evaporation, Condensation, Precipatation and Runoff/groundwater. Let's go find out what happens!

It is the step that takes water from natures beautiful liquid life; the ocean!When the suns beams collide with the sea it heats up and turns into gas! This works even better on a hot summers day.

When evaporation has done it's part condensation comes in and forms clouds out of the evaporation. Did you know condensation isn't always up in the sky as those big white puffy things you see in the sky. Oh no, they are also responsible for ground level fog as well. These clouds that you see can be made of water AND ICE! What happens when condensation has formed these incredible clouds? Do they stay up there? No, so let's go find out what happens!

This long word just means that it's rain, hail, sleet or snow falling from the sky, anything really that falls from the sky due to gravity. (gravity plays a big part in the Water Cycle) After the clouds have been formed and they have gotten as full as possible and gone dark or gray, that's when precipatation happens! The sleet, snow, rain or hail that falls, goes all the way back to earth! But where does that liquid/solid go?

The water sinks into either dirt/soil or rocks (most likely soil or dirt!) It travels underground from then on, until it comes across a river or stream and with that it heads off back down to the ocean! But no, that's not where it ALL goes! The water that has sunken into the ground can either go to the river/stream OR head even further down through the cracks in the soil or rock to the center of the earth!

Overall the water cycle is a great part of life that helps us live! From the suns beams that heat the water, to the fluffy white clouds in the sky, and the rain, hail, sleet, or snow that falls and finally the water that travels under or on top of the world. What would we ever do without the water cycle!
