FC: The Water Cycle
1: This book contains examples of student work that might be created and published following the directions of my water cycle lesson plan found on the last page of this Mixbook. Students are motivated with the use of technology. They can have fun creating work that they can be proud of. This project can be published and shared with others. This project may be viewed on the web by family and friends, but may also be printed as a hard copy book. This book could be kept in the classroom as well as the school library, it may also be purchased by parents and gaurdians as a keepsake of their child's work.
2: The Water Cycle stages are: evaporation, condensation, precipitation, and surface run off/ground water
3: The water cycle is also known as the hydrologic cycle. There is not a starting point to the water cylce. It is a continuous move- ment of water that is driven by the sun. Water from bodies of water such as oceans, river, and lakes is evaporated into the air. Condensation will form and cloud particles will grow causing precipitation to fall from the sky as surface runofff and back into the bodies of water. | Evaporation is water molecules that escape the earth's surface and enter the atmosphere. Condensation is water vapor in the air that turns into liquid droplets as the air expands and cools. Precipitation is water droplets that become heavy and fall back to the earth's surface from clouds. Emma, Nate, Marcus, and Samantha
4: Hyrosphere: Is the watery layer of the Earth's surface. Alexis and Jake | Geosphere: Is the solid layers of the Earth consisting of the crust and outer mantle. | Atmosphere: Is a layer of gases surrounding the Earth. , Maria and Warren
5: The path of the water cycle: The hydrosphere is the water on the earth's surface that is evaporated into the atmosphere. The water is returned to the earths surface also known as the geosphere through percipitation.
6: As water moves through the hydrologic cycle it may take on many different forms. It starts from oceans, rivers, lakes, and streams which is then evaporated and condensed. Clouds are formd and when they are full they release water as precipitation. The weather temperature is a determining factor for which form the water takes when it is released from the clouds.
7: Rain, dew, fog, and snow are different forms that water can take as precipitation
8: Bernard Palissy 16th century French scientist, potter, painter, philosopher, and author | The water cycle was discovered over a period of years. Bernard Palissy is credited to be the scientist who compliled the theories that already existed and then wrote our modern hydrologic cycle. Austin, Nick, and Seth
