The Water Cycle
The Earth, which is the planet we live on, is known as the Blue planet because as much as 3/4 of the planet’s surface is water! And water is so very important because without it, there would be no life.
When the sun warms the water on the Earth’s surface, it evaporates, converting itself into water vapor or steam and begins its incredible journey flying up into the sky. This first stage of its journey is known as evaporation. When the water converts into vapor, it rises towards the atmosphere, then cools down transforming itself into clouds. This second stage of its journey it called condensation.
Clouds are actually tiny little drops of water suspended in the air, but when the clouds grow, they collect more and more water. These water drops then crash into each other and become bigger drops of water. Then at some point, they end up falling to the ground in the form of rain or even snow. This stage of the water cycle is called precipitation.
This water journey is called the water cycle and during this educational video children will learn a lot of fascinating facts about water.
