Water cycle info report

    The Water Cycle

The Water cycle is a process that water goes between the land, sea and atmosphere. The water is recycled throughout the process. The water changes state throughout the process to liquid, gas or solid and back again. The steps in the water cycle are evaporation, condensation, precipitation, groundwater and runoff.

The first part of the water cycle is evaporation it is an invisible process this happens when the sun heats up the water and then it turns into a gas called vapour.and when it's hotter the sun will evaporate water faster than normal.

The next step in the water cycle is condensation/precipitation condensation it is the opposite of evaporation. Condensation is a process of turning vapor into water. Condensation is water vapor rising into the sky.

The next step is runoff/ground water. When the rain hits the ground it starts to flow downhill.ground water is not connected to lakes or mostly flow in under ground rivers.

The water cycle is very important we would die without it it will never end.

I can apply my knowledge of adverbial clauses and connectives to see how ideas are linked in texts.

For reading I have been learning about adverbial clauses. I have found this learning hard because it was hard to find information

In this activity (link to adverbial clause activity), I had to describe what an adverbial clause and a connective is.
