The cycle starts when water on the surface of the Earth evaporates. Evaporation means the sun heats the water which turns into gas, this happens when the water reaches 100 degrees celsius.
Hello Kids, today I'm going to show you how the watercycle works. We are now standing in the place where the cycle starts - in the waters of our earth.
This water collects as water vapor in the sky. This water vapor goes through a process called condensation, and forms clouds.
Next, the water in the clouds gets cold, and becomes liquid again. Then kids, this water falls from the sky as rain, snow, and hail, in a process called precipitation - so think about that the next time you're walking around with an umbrella, walking around in the snow, or protecting yourself from the hail.
This water, which, unsurprisingly, falls back to the earth again, is collected into oceans, lakers, or even your uncle's backyard swimming room! Think about that the next time he invites you over for a dip!
The carbon cycle is the process of carbon being replaced and restored on the earth, so let's start right from the start. Carbon gets into the carbon cycle mainly by the burning of fossil fuels but might also happen by volcanic means. This carbon is mainly taken out of our atmosphere by photosynthesis, some of this is released as they decompose, but a part also gets buried in sediment. This sediment turns to rock, and it is these rocks that contains the solid CO2, where it can stay for a long time before decomposing.
Well kids, now you've heard everything about the water cycle, but have you ever gone around wondering "What's the carbon cycle?" No? Well, then I'll explain it to you here and now.
The carbon also gets dissolved into the ocean, and since we today release more carbon than we remove our waters are turning more and more acidic. When oceanic plates bump into each other, which in some cases forms volcanoes around the borders of the plates. These spit out CO2, thus, fulfilling the carbon cycle.
Well, my child, it seems like our journey ends here, take this lollipop as a token of my greatness for you having listened to me blobbering all day. Iwish you the best of luck, and by so I say goodbye. Goodbye!
