I've been in this ocean for so long, I don't think ill ever leave. I like it here in the ocean!
Yes, but there will be a time when you'll have to leave. Oh look how we are leaving the ocean. This is called evaporation
This stage is called condensation. We are part of a cloud in the sky. The suns heat made us evaporate.
We are no longer in the ocean, and I can't feel myself. I feel really warm now. What is happening to me?
Wow your right, we are turned back into tiny water droplets but, how? Now we are falling. Where are we going?
After condensation in the water cycle is precipitation. This is where we turn into rain that are coming out of the clouds. This happens because the air up here has cooled down a lot.
Where are we now? Are we back in the ocean?
No we arent back in the ocean. This seems to be a river and I think I know where we are headed next. Do you hear the roaring water?
ARRGH!! I think I can hear the sound now! Where is this going to take us?
I don't know. We will just have to go with the flow and see where we end up.
This is the water cycle. What we went through today was evaporation, condensation, precipitation and groundwater flow. Instead of Evaporation, which happens from the sea, we could have been through transpiration instead, which is evaporation, but from the leafs of a tree.
This looks like where we started. Home sweet home. I don't want to ever leave the ocean again.
