The Water Cycle
Sun
9. The __________is most
responsible for our weather
and warming the water and
land.
Run-off
10. ____________Water
which
accumulates on the soil surface as a
result of rainfall and flows over the
soil surface from higher to lower
land.
Evaporation
11. The process of liquid
becoming water vapor as it
leaves the earth’s surface and
enter the atmosphere is called
Evaporation
__________
12. Liquid or frozen water
droplets fall to Earth as
rain, snow, sleet or hail is
called
Precipitation

Warm
the _______________air
14. A puddle may change
shape and become smaller
on a hot sunny day
because it is changing from
gas
liquid
a ______to
a _____which
we call, evaporation
Solar
15. _________energy,
or
energy from the sun is the
type of energy responsible
for evaporation.
16. When warm air full of
water vapor meet cool air,
condensation
_________
occurs
in the form of tiny water
droplets, similar to the
droplets we found on the
outside of our glasses.
17. Tiny water droplets
attach to dust particles in
the sky and form
