Evaporation time! Up into the clouds... Wow, it's getting hot! Must be the sun, the reason for all of this!
Well, now we're runoff, where we head to join our friends in bodies of water.
Well, here we are... condensation. In our cloud that we form together.
Precipitation! Now I'm falling, falling, falling. Lower in to the troposphere, part of the atmosphere.
Look! Some fellow water molecules are traveling to the atmosphere by transpiration.
Well, I'm in a lake now, waiting to evaporated once more!
Evaporation:The process that occurs when water changes from a gas caused by heat Condensation:The cooling of water in the atmosphere changing from gas to liquid Precipitation:Water droplets fall from the atmosphere in rain, sleet, snow or hail Runoff: Rainfall that is not absorbed by soil and travels to a body of water Transpiration: The passage of water vapor from a plant to the atmosphere.
