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
