We also learned about the Hydrologic Cycle also called the Water Cycle. In cooperative learning groups, we constructed models of the Water Cycle. We were able to observe each of the following parts of the never ending
sun: provides energy
evaporation: vapor created when the sun heats water in lakes, streams, rivers, or oceans
transpiration: vapor created when plants and trees give off moisture
condensation: tiny droplets of water formed when water vapor rises into the air and cools
precipitation: moisture released from clouds in the form of rain, snow, hail, etc..
percolation: movement of the water through the ground
