Transcript of The 5th grade Water Cycle Module

Definition of
the Water Cycle
The Sun and
the Water Cycle
How the Water Cycle works!
The cycle of evaporation and condensation controls the distribution of the earth's water as it evaporates from bodies of water or land. The water evaporates, condenses, precipitates, runs-off, infiltrates, transpires and finally returns to bodies of water or land.
Almost all of the water on the
planet has been here since the
earth was formed!
The Sun causes water on the surface of oceans, rivers, lakes, and ground to evaporate in to the sky. Evaporation causes the air to cool.
Clouds can produce rain, hail, snow or sleet. Water that falls from the atmosphere in these forms is called, Precipitation.
A lot of the water falling as rain can run off the ground surface either into rivers, lakes or into the ocean. Any additional water will be forced to run over the surface as Run-off Nearly 40% of all precipitation flows back across the land to seas and oceans.
When so much water has infiltrated the ground that no more can soak in, then it is said that the ground has reached saturation point. Some of the water which infiltrates into the ground ultimately returns to the surface as springs or lakes and can also drain into river systems below the surface of the river flow. Some of the infiltration water will remain underground as Groundwater.
The water cycle is an important part of our everyday lives! With out the Water Cycle the earth could not reproduce water for us to survive! Below is a Diagram of the
Water Cycle
The Sun plays an important part in the water cycle, with out it there would be no water cycle!
Fun Fact
The stages of the
Water Cycle
We may even be drinking water that Dinosaurs drank!!
As the air containing the water vapor rises, it cools and the vapor begins to condense into clouds. The process of condensation releases heat back into the atmosphere moving the clouds to new locations, the heat is redistributed across the earth. The water drops on the glass can be identified as condensation.
Water is absorbed through the roots of plants and moves up through hollow tubes to the leaves.
Leaves have small holes in them through which they can absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Water vapor is also lost through evaporation from the pores of leaves

The Water Cycle
Quick Review
1. Water falls either into rivers, lakes, into the ocean or on the ground.
2. Ground has reached saturation point.
3. Causes the air to cool.
4. Releases heat back into the atmosphere.
5. Is absorbed through the roots of plants.
6. Water that falls from the atmosphere in forms of rain, hail, snow or sleet.
Activity Time!!
To effectively acquire new vocabulary, students must go through four essential stages:
* First, they notice a new word with help;
* Secondly, they recognize the word at first with help,
* Then later on their own
* Lastly they are able to both recognize and produce the word
remember to cater to different learning styles or multiple intelligences
