Science: The Water Cycle

Because of the heavy rain during the month of January, we thought it is a great idea to present to the children The Water Cycle.
The children enjoy learning about the water cycle . They had an understanding how the water cycle works with our facts that help explain the different processes in a way that’s easy to follow.

Evaporation:
Heat from the Sun causes water on Earth (in oceans, lakes etc) to evaporate (turn from liquid into gas) and rise into the sky. This water vapor collects in the sky in the form of clouds.
Condensation:
As water vapor in the clouds cools down it becomes water again, this process is called condensation.
Precipitation:
Water falls from the sky in the form of rain, snow, hail, or sleet, this process is called precipitation.
Collection:
Oceans and lakes collect water that has fallen. Water evaporates into the sky again and the cycle continues.
