Name _________________________________________ Date ___________________ Class # ____________ Unit 3 – Review Sheet on Weather and Climate IMPORTANT NOTE: The Water Cycle is crucial to the development of different weather events and especially in with regards to condensation and evaporation. The sun’s uneven heating of the Earth and the sun’s ability to cause evaporation by heating surface water leads to all the crazy weather here on Earth. So remember the SUN is to blame. TRY OUT THESE WATER CYCLE QUESTIONS: 1. What two things can account for the presence of moisture on grass in the early morning? A. Precipitation and condensation B. Evaporation and precipitation C. Ground water and evaporation D. Accumulation and condensation 2. If the amount of sunlight reaching Earth decreased, the amount of water on the SURFACE of the Earth would probably – A. Decrease because there would be less evaporation B. Increase because there would be less evaporation C. Increase because there would be more precipitation D. Decrease because there would be less condensation 3. NOW TRY TO SORT THE FOLLOWING WORDS AS EITHER WEATHER INDICATOR WORDS OR CLIMATE INDICATOR WORDS.
