Hi my name is Rain and I am a water molecule! I live in a river right now but I move around a lot because of the water cycle. I would like to take you on an adventure with me! Come on!
The first step on my journey is called evaporation. This is when the sun is so hot that I go through a phase change. I change from a liquid to a gas. During this step, I get to fly up towards the sky!
Now that I am evaporated, I will go on to the step on condensation. This is another phase change where I change from a gas to a liquid. Now I get to become part of a fluffy cloud and move to another location.
After a little bit of time, I have moved to another place. The next step is precipitation. This is the step where I go down to the ground again before the cycle starts over.Gravity is what is making me fall to the ground so quickly It looks like I am falling on plants instead of water! What an exciting ride!
I am now on a plant. The next step I take is called transpiration. This step is a lot like evaporation but I am coming off of a plant instead! Next I will go to condensation just like before! This cycle repeats over and over again for the rest of my life!
Thanks for coming on this ride with me! Hope to see you again!
