WATER CYCLE!!! The water cycle is made of 4 parts. The 4 parts are evaporation, condensation, precipitation, and collection. PREDICTIONS!!! Junior- My prediction was to learn about how the water cycle works. Madison- My prediction was to learn about the water cycle’s 4 parts. That are evaporation, condensation, precipitation, and collection. Evaporation definition and How The Water Cycle Works!!! Evaporation means turning liquid into vapor. The water cycle is first, the rain falls. That is called Precipitation. Next, the step is evaporation. When Evaporation happens the vapor rises. Then condensation happens which is when the clouds form. Finally, Transpiration The Way The Water Cycle Works!!! The water cycle works first evaporation-the vapors rises, condensation- the clouds form, precipitation- the rain falls, transpiration- the movement through plants. How Do Clouds Form??? Glad that you asked. Okay so clouds form due to water vapor. The sun’s heat makes water in lakes, oceans, and rivers to evaporate. Vapor combines to form a cloud. When lower temperature is obtained, it rains. What is Condensation? Condensation is when the clouds form. The slide before this one told you about how clouds form. The Forms of Precipitation. When the temperature and atmosphere pressure are right,the small droplets of water includes form larger droplets and precipitation occurs. The raindrops fall to the Earth. As a result of evaporation, condensation, and precipitation water travels from the surface of the Earth goes into the atmosphere, and returns to Earth again. Why is the water cycle important? The water cycle is important to Earth because it gives us water to drink and to bathe in. The Water Cycle Joke Page 1 Take a good look at the water. Can you guess how old it is? The Water Cycle Joke. Page 2 The water in your glass may have fallen from the sky as rain just last week, but the water itself has been around pretty mush as long as Earth has! The Water Cycle Joke Page 2 When the first fish crawled out of the ocean onto the land, your glass of water was apart of that ocean. When the Brontosaurus walked through lakes feeding on plants, your glass of water was apart of the lakes. When kings and princesses, knights and squires took a drink from their wells, your glass of water was apart of those wells. AND YOU THOUGHT YOUR PARENTS WERE OLD!!!!!!!!!!!! ANY QUESTIONS?? ??????????? THANK YOU !!!!!! Thank you for listening to our presentation!!!!!!!
