The journey of the water cycle begins when the heat from the sun heats up the water in the ocean
Some of the water evaporates as water vapor into the air. This is called evaporation
The vapor rises into the air where cooler temperatures cause it to condense into clouds. This is called condensation
When the clouds are heavy and cannot hold any more water vapor. Rain falls out as precipitation. Precipitation can also be snow, hail, or sleet.
Most precipitation falls back into the oceans or onto land, where, due to gravity, the precipitation flows over the ground as surface runoff
Over time, though, all of this water keeps moving, some to reenter the ocean, where the water cycle "begins"
