Transcript of Water Cycle
Evaporation is when water changes states from a liquid to a solid.
To fall to the earth's surface as a condensed form of water; to rain, snow, hail, or drizzle.
Condensation is when the evaporated water changes from a gas to a liquid.
Bakersfield is primarily based on agriculture so the farmers are having to cut back on the production of some crops to use less water. With the farmers not being able to plant as many crops as usual, this years harvest will be very low.This means that crops from this region and other parts of California will be much more expensive. And by the price rising, it affects everyone because California supplies
Water Conservation Strategies:
Turn off water when brushing your teeth.
Don't wash cars at home
Don't water plants/ lawns every day
Run only full loads in dishwashers and washer machines.
Keep a pitcher of water in the refrigerator instead of running it at the tap until it cools.
Collect water from shower while its warming up
Who is most affected by the Drought in Bakersfield?
How is the drought affecting Bakersfield?
The drought is affecting Bakersfield a lot because nobody has any water especially farmers. With out water, crops will suffer greatly, and farms will be reduced in both size and income. This drought is really impacting lives, property, and economies by increasing unemployment. Peoples lawns are turning brown and they are shutting down all water parks. And these are just some things happening in Bakersfield.

Explaining the Water Cycle
When the sun heats up the water in the ocean or another water source, the water evaporates and goes up to the sky where there is less heat so the evaporated water cools to become a liquid. This liquid is then pulled back down to earth by gravity.
How does Heat energy affect the movement of water molecules
Heat is constantly changing the amount water moves. When heat is added to water, the water evaporates and goes up. If the water gets high enough, the jet stream takes it and the water can travel a very far way. But when heat is taken away, the water has the opposite problem. It doesn't move enough. When heat is taken away, the liquid water becomes solid ice and it doesn't move very much.
