Main Parts of the Water Cycle EVAPORATION CONDENSATION PRECIPITAION COLLECTION EVAPORATION CONDENSATIONPRECIPITAION COLLECTION
EVAPORATION Evaporation is 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.
CONDENSATION Water vapor in the air gets cold and changes back into liquid, forming clouds. This is called condensation.
PRECIPITATION Precipitation occurs when so much water has condensed that the air cannot hold it anymore. The clouds get heavy and water falls back to the earth in the form of rain, hail, sleet or snow.
COLLECTION When water falls back to earth as precipitation, it may fall back in the oceans, lakes or rivers or it may end up on land. When it ends up on land, it will either soak into the earth and become part of the “ground water” that plants and animals use to drink or it may run over the soil and collect in the oceans, lakes or rivers where the cycle starts
What’s the big deal? “Every human, plant, and animal depends on water for survival. Let's explore the Earth's water cycle; what exactly is it?” (Click Flipper to review)
