3 The water cycle begins with water. Water is found in many places 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.
4 The next stage is evaporation The next stage is evaporation. This is a process where the water is heated and turned into a water vapor. The sun is the main heat source for this process.
5 The next stage is condensation 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 to heavy and begin to fall in the form of precipitation.
6 The next stage is Precipitation The next stage is Precipitation. This is water falling to the earth in the form of snow, hail, rain, sleet, or glaze.
7 The next stage is percolation The next stage is percolation. The water seeps through the soil and ends up in the water table. It then flows into the streams, lakes, oceans, and other bodies of water. The process is then repeated again and again.
