The Water Cycle

The water cycle is a series of events in which water changes states. It first rises up as a gas, then forms what we know as clouds, and then when the cloud gets full, it rains, hails, or snows.

EvaporationWater starts out a liquid in oceans, rivers, etc. The sun heats the water and it evaporates into the sky, turning into a gas(water vapor).

CondensationAfter water evaporates and turns into water vapor, it forms condensation, a.k.a. clouds. When dirt or dust particles are in the air, water gets attached to it. More and more water vapor gets attached to it, and they form clouds.

PrecipitationWhen clouds get too heavy and full of water, they precipitate. Precipitation is any form of water falling from the sky, such as rain, hail, snow, and sleet.

Transpiration is a little like evaporation except the water does not come from bodies of water. Instead, water comes off plants and evaporates.

Once water precipitates, the cycle starts all over again! The water runs down and ends up in lakes and oceans again. Then it evaporates and it starts all over.
