Facts About the Water Cycle

Facts About the Water Cycle

Here is an easy way of teaching facts about the water cycle to your students. Please read the water cycle terms and their explanation beside them. 

Evaporation: s a type of vaporization of a liquid that occurs from the surface of a liquid into a gaseous phase that is not saturated with the evaporating substance. The other type of vaporization is boiling, which is characterized by bubbles of saturated vapor forming in the liquid phase.

Precipitation: The product of the condensation of atmospheric water vapor that falls under gravity. The main forms of precipitation include drizzle, rain, sleet, snow, and hail.

Condensation:  is the change of the physical state of matter from gas into liquid, and is the reverse of evaporation

Runoff:  is the flow of water that occurs when excess stormwatermeltwater, or other sources flows over the Earth's surface.

Vapor:  is the gaseous phase of water.

Transpiration: is the process of water movement through a plant and its evaporation from aerial parts, such as leaves, stems and flowers. 

Infiltration is the process by which water on the ground surface enters the soil. 

 Percolation: refers to the movement and filtering of fluids through porous materials.

These terms were sourced through Wikipedia and amended for younger children to read.

The facts about the water cycle are easy to understand the teach in the classroom.

This is an example of the water cycle which you can teach your students.

The clouds have condensed to much, that they released rain which has fallen into the Ocean, river, lake or body of water. This water is heated up by the energy from the sun and it evaporates into a vapour which begins to form clouds. Due to other atmospheric conditions, the clouds form into larger, heavier clouds and the pressure is released in forms of sleet, know, rain, and snow. The cycle continues around and around.

I have been teaching elementary or primary school for over 10 years, both as a full time teacher and relief or substitute teachers. Throughout this time I have also been heavily involved in Theater and Drama both on television and on stage. So as you can image my teaching has been heavily influenced by the 'dramatics' as well.

I cut my teeth with those students who came from the lower socio economic classes and this is where I found my teaching style. I came to appreciate the hardships kids go through and their families.
