The Water Cycle
Today you are going to be reading and watching various explanations of the water cycle.
Take a look at the webpage below. Watch the clip, read the information and have a go at the little activity at the bottom too.
BBC Bitesize - What is the Water Cycle?
Now read through the information on National Geographic Kids – The Water Cycle:
Think about the key words that you have read: evaporation, condensation, precipitation and collection. Write a definition for each word.
Imagine that you are a water droplet. You are going to write a description of what happens to you during the water cycle. Be as creative as you can by adding in some description of how you are feeling at each stage, e.g.
I am a water droplet living in the vast ocean. Here is my journey.
As I was floating around in the sea, I began to feel warm. The warmth of the sun made me relax until suddenly I was drifting upwards out of the sea. I was evaporating! Nervously I looked around but felt reassured when I saw my friends were with me too.
Remember to keep checking your work for spelling and punctuation.
