Storyboard Text

  •  A lot of the water in the water cycle starts out or is held in bodies of water. This is known as collection and water molecules can stay here for a long time before going through the water cycle.
  • After awhile, the sun is used to create energy in some of these water molecules. This is a process called evaporation and it plays a very important role in the water cycle.
  • This causes the water vapor to cool and condense back into water. These molecules combine with dust particles which eventually bunch up to create a cloud(s).
  • Eventually, the water molecules become so great and heavy that gravity makes them fall to the ground as precipitation. Precipitation comes in many forms including snow, hail, sleet, and rain. 
  • Water then runs off of fields, the ground, or other areas back into the bodies of water. This process is called Run-off. Run-off usually comes from fields and usually goes back into collection.
  •  Water molecules from the ground get soaked up into the roots of plants and then evaporates out of the leaves of the plants. This process is called transpiration and is another part of the water cycle.
  • The water cycle is a continuous process that continues . No water can be added or taken away from the water cycle. The water cycle is a very important process that we need to survive
