Water Cycle Information

Water exists in multiple forms throughout the water cycle. There are bodies of water, such as ponds, lakes, rivers, and oceans. The heat from our sun warms the water, causing it to evaporate and rise into the atmosphere. The air currents cool the moisture turning it into clouds. The clouds carry precipitation (rain, sleet, snow, hail, etc.) which falls to the earth during storms. This moisture feeds the plant life and falls or becomes runoff filling our bodies of water or becoming ground water, to start the process all over again.

Water Conservation for Kids

Kids can bring awareness of water conservation to their schools and friends. They can start a water conservation club, and encourage their families, friends, and their friends’ families to conserve water at home and in school. Handy tips like washing dishes only when the dishwasher is full, only using the faucet when necessary (instead of leaving it running), and using a broom to clean outdoor areas instead of a hose can save upwards of ten thousand gallons of water per location. Decreased water usage translates to lower water bills. Saving money and helping the planet are two things everyone can get behind.
