Evaporation When the sun heats up water in rivers or lakes or the ocean and turns it into vapor or steam The water vapor or steam leaves the river, lake or ocean and goes into the air Up we go! Q Back Next Main Circle Help Quiz Time

Q Condensation Water vapor in the air gets cold
This is how clouds are formed! Water vapor in the air gets cold It changes back into liquid Q Back Next Main Circle Help Quiz Time

Precipitation Precipitation occurs when too much water is collected that the air cannot hold it anymore. The clouds get heavy and water falls back to the earth There are different forms rain, hail, sleet or snow. Q Back Next Main Circle Help Quiz Time

Q Surface Runoff When water falls back to earth as precipitation
Could fall into oceans, lakes, rivers or land If it soaks into the earth it becomes “ground water” Plants and animals use this “ground water” to drink It may run over the soil and collect in the oceans, lakes or rivers where the cycle starts ALL OVER AGAIN! Q Back Next Main Circle Help Quiz Time

Q Let’s Review Condensation Precipitation Evaporation Runoff
Into the ground, lakes, ponds, oceans and more Evaporation Up into the air Condensation Where Clouds are formed Precipitation This occurs because there is too much water in the clouds Q
