The Magic of Water
Have you ever wondered??? Where does the water go? Why does it rain? How do the clouds make rain ?
Did you know?
All living things need water to stay alive. eeb.princeton.edu/GRADUATE/Introduction2.html asla.org/ nonmembers /lam/lamartciles02/january02/images/Ecology.gif
Water covers a whole lot of the earth.
Water is found naturally in 3 different forms. Solid Liquid Gas (ice) (water vapor)
There are different bodies of water. Oceans Rivers Lakes Streams Bays Channels Creeks
A river is a long body of water that flows across the land.
A stream or creek is like a little river.
A lake is a body of water with land all around it.
An ocean is a very large body of salt water.
This is a picture of what happens. It is called the Water Cycle.
Evaporation is when the sun heats the earths water and turns water into drops that go back up into the air.
When the drops cool off, they get together and form a cloud. This is called condensation.
When the drops get really heavy, they will fall out of the cloud. This is called precipitation.
Lets see how the sun, water and clouds work together.
This is what happens over and over again!
Heres another way it works!
Now you know Just where the water will go!
