The Water Cycle By: Lily McCarthy, Katelyn Knights, & Celia Soares

Heat/Solar Energy - Katie Heat/Solar Energy is when the sun gives off a radiant energy. This comes into play when water vapor is brought into the atmosphere by evaporation.

Evaporation is when a liquid (for example water) will evaporate or rise into the air, transforming into water vapor. Then it will make its way up into the clouds for condensation to eventually happen. Evaporation occurs on the surface of a substance, in the liquid state, as it begins to form into the gaseous stage, due to a change in temperature. Found in Google Images

Plants -Celia Soares A plant is a living organism. Some plants created things that people can eat, and some are just for show. Some examples of plants are ferns, grass,and trees. See “source page� for sources Found on Google Images

Transpiration - Katie Transpiration is when it rains, the roots in the soil from the plant soak up the fresh water and then it moves up the stem. After it moves up the stem, it goes makes its way into the leaves, and when the sun shines on the leaves, the water inside it evaporates and becomes water vapor.

Condensation - Celia Soares Condensation is when the water droplets go up into the air and form into a cloud. Sometimes it happens differently, like for example, the picture down below is a picture of condensation, but it is also the outside of a water bottle. It's an Image result for primates when water droplets find a cold glass and stick to it. For example, ice tea, a cold glass of lemonade, and a cold glass of water.

Atmosphere - Katie

Dictionary also used - see sources slide

The atmosphere is kind of like a protective layer on the earth. It’s like a bunch of gases surrounding the Earth or another planet. The earth’s atmosphere also keeps the water and oxygen on the earth too!

Sublimation - Celia Soares - Extra Slide Sublimation is when ice changes into water vapor/gas. It is a solid transforming into a gas. For example, when something is really cold, all of the water moisture inside it turns into gas. (like the picture below)

Precipitation occurs when the clouds get too heavy, (from the droplets of water that are in the clouds) and get larger over time. It forms rain, snow, sleet, or hail. If the water inside of the cloud freezes, it will result in snow instead of rain. And when frozen droplets melt, they will turn to rain once they get down to us. Both found of Google Images

Water-Celia Soares Water is a clear and tasteless liquid. Water is the liquid in waterfalls, oceans, rivers, lakes, pools, and beaches. Water is bland. A lot of people think water is refreshing. Water can turn into liquid, gas, and a solid.

Surface Runoff Katie

Found on Google Images!

Surface Runoff is when it rains too much, or if so much snow melts, or any other liquid that flows onto the ground in streams, rivers, or canals. It is not underground, unless it is subsurface runoff.

Subsurface Runoff - Lily McCarthy - Extra Slide Subsurface Runoff is precipitation that goes down into the soil, and may form a little stream underground. Rain, snow, sleet, and hail are examples of precipitation that have moved underground. The water can also travel into drains and make its way down into the sewers.

Groundwater - Lily McCarthy Groundwater is water that gets absorbed into the soil, and in narrow openings or breakings of a rock. This occurs beneath the Earth’s surface, where the water fills any spaces that aren’t already taken up. The water Fills up spots between dirt particles. Groundwater can form large aquifers, which is a a body of rock, that allows the water to go through it, containing groundwater. Picture found on Google Images

Accumulation - Katie Accumulation is a big collection of water. (Water can be fresh or salt) When it rains, most of the water will lead to the ocean, and also surface runoff can also lead to accumulation too, since it will be flowing into a body of water.
