In our class, we made a water cycle. We used cups, plastic wrap, and a rubber band. First, we put hot water in the cup. Afterwards, we put the plastic wrap over the cup. Then we put the rubber band over the plastic wrap. Then we set them close to the window so they could get heat from the sun. Finally, the heat from the water evaporated to the plastic wrap and turned back into liquid water drops through condensation. When the drops got too big and heavy, they fell as precipitation! In our next Science class, we made pictures of the water cycle to show what happens during the water cycle. After we were done, we added some glitter to the rain and snow. The things falling from the clouds are precipitation, the clouds are condensation. First, the water heats up from the sun and turns into a gas called water vapor. The water vapor goes up into the atmosphere that is very cold. When it hits the cold air, it turns back into a liquid and forms clouds, which is called condensation. Once more water comes into the clouds, they get so heavy and can't hold any more water. They let the water go, and it rains, snows, sleets or hails. This is called precipitation. The pictures below are some examples of our water cycles!
