The Water Cycle


Heat from the sun makes water from the sea or land evaporate.
Evaporation turns liquid water into a gas called water vapour.

If the water vapour cools it condenses into little droplets and a cloud is formed.

The water in a cloud falls as rain (sometimes called precipitation).

Some of the rain soaks into the ground.
Some forms rivers which flow into the sea.
