Water Cycle


Watch this video to get an overview of the water cycle, what it does, and what role it plays in our lives. As many of you may know, the water cycle has three main steps: evaporation, condensation, and precipitation. However, the cyclical nature of water also means that new water cannot be created, and existing water cannot truly be destroyed. The amount of water on earth is constant, and, therefore, finite. This poses a problem when water is made unusable through pollution or overusage -- although it does not cease to be water, it becomes undrinkable and unsanitary. When this happens, the amount of available water decreases.

Activity:
Follow the path of a singular water droplet as it completes the water cycle. Where does the water droplet go? At what stage does its story "begin"? Is it freshwater or saltwater? You may use any medium you wish.
What is a "Water Issue"?
