S: Mr. Drop
BC: See you when I am in the Water Cycle!
FC: Mr. Drop By: Sebastian, Kai, & Noah
1: Hello, my name is Mr. Drop. I am here to tell you a story about my life cycle. I hope you enjoy it. I continue over and over again. When you see me, make sure to say hello!
2: The cycle first starts with Evaporation. Evaporation is when the sun heats up water in rivers or lakes or the ocean and turns it into vapor or steam. The water vapor or steam leaves the river, lake or ocean and goes into the air.
3: Condensation is the second step. Water vapor in the air gets cold and changes back into liquid, forming clouds. This is called condensation.
4: The third step is precipitation. Precipitation occurs when so much water has condensed that the air cannot hold it anymore. The clouds get heavy and water falls back to the earth in the form of rain, hail, sleet or snow.
5: When water falls back to earth as precipitation, it may fall back in the oceans, lakes or rivers or it may end up on land. When it ends up on land, it will either soak into the earth and become part of the “ground water” that plants and animals use to drink or it may run over the soil and collect in the oceans, lakes or rivers where the cycle starts all over again.
