Tell the story of this raindrop’s journey. Use the words: evaporation, condensation and precipitation.
The water cycle
Evaporation – Evaporation is when the heat from the sun dries up water from ponds, streams, rivers and seas, and then it turns to a gas. We cannot see this because the gas is invisible and it happens really slowly.
Condensation – Condensation is when the gas goes up into the sky and clumps together which then turns visible, this makes what we call a cloud.
Precipitation – Precipitation happens when the clouds get too heavy and the moisture falls down from the cloud as rain, snow, hail or sleet.
This is the water cycle and it happens over and over again.
The rain transports from water. Then the sun heats up the water and it was goes up to the clouds . Then it freezes when the clouds get heavy . Then it pores down with rain.
One drop landed on the leaf of a tree it evaporated,and started its journey again, heading to the clouds.Another drop landed on the dirt in a field,and sank into the ground. The cycle of the water drop continues again, starting with its journey from the clouds.
The Water cycle journey begins with water on the surface of the Earth. Evaporation is the process by which water is converted from it’s liquid state to the gaseous state, also known as water vapour. Condensation is the process by which water vapour is changed back into liquid water. Precipitation, the next phase of the water cycle, is water that falls from the atmosphere in the form of rain, sleet, snow, hail or freezing rain. Clouds are required for precipitation because the raindrops are the drops of the clouds that have condensed enough water to begin falling.
Early in the morning the sun would rise and as the day went on it would get hotter.In the middle of the day the sun would heat up the water in oceans ,and turn it into gas.From there the gas would go up,into the air,this is called evaporation.Then the gas would form a cloud this is called condensation.When the cloud get’s big the water will fall this is called precipitation. If it is cold in the air the water will fall as snow.The water can fall as sleet,hail,snow and rain.This is how the water cycle works.
This is the water cycle🌀. The heat of the sun dries up all the ground water and it turns to water vapour, this is evaporation!! All the water turns into gas. Then all the gas goes up to the sky and turns into clouds. This is condensation!! After a while the clouds get too heavy and water comes pouring down as rain, snow, sleet and hail upon my head! ☔. This is precipitation!!!
The water cycle starts off when the sun heats up all the ground water and turns it into a liquid called water vapour. This step is called evaporation. The water vapour then goes up into the clouds where it is stored. The water vapour cools down and turns into raindrops, this is called condensation. When the raindrops get big they fall from the clouds as rain, snow, sleet or hail. Then the cycle begins all over again. I like it best when it snows, because I like to build snowmen, have snowball fights, and go sledging with Oz, Mum and Dad.
Once upon a time there was a raindrop called Lily. One day she started slowly disappearing into the atmosphere, that is known as Evaporation. As she flew across the beautiful blue Sea higher up into the sky she noticed her friends falling out of the other clouds whizzing quickly past her back down to the ground, this is called Condensation. All of a sudden she noticed she was falling out of the sky too!!! This is called precipitation. After that Lily the raindrop fell back down into the sea and the process started all
over again. *THE END*
On a sunny, damp day a puddle of water will evaporate and heat in to water vapour. The water vapour will rise up, this being called evaporation. Next, the water vapour cools down and joins together to form clouds. This is called condensation. Soon, drops form in the clouds. They will grow too big and heavy for the clouds. Later it will rain, sleet, snow or hail. That is called precipitation. It happens over and over again, That is the water cycle.
This raindrop starts life in a pond. The heat of the sun makes the water in the pond get warm. Some of the water evaporates and it rises up in the air to make clouds. It is very cold in the sky and the water condenses, which means it turns from gas to liquid.
The clouds start to get heavy with all the water. It starts to fall to the ground as rain, snow, hail or sleet. This is called precipitation.
The water cycle never stops and the water will go back into the pond to start all over again.
I am a raindrop. At the moment I am in a fast flowing river, and I am excited and frightened. I am excited because there is a waterfall ahead but frightened of the long drop. I have done this before. After the waterfall I will head out to the deep sea. Then I will turn into a gas and slowly float towards the sky. I disappear into the clouds and experience evaporation. Inside the cloud I become liquid again. I feel myself once more. This is condensation. For my final journey I become precipitation. I am falling down, down, down…
One dark cold stormy day a little rain drop called droppy was flowing in a river. Then suddenly droppy turned in to an oil and started flying. That is called Evaporation.
When droppy was in the air suddenly flew into a cloud and turned in to hail. That is called precipitation.
Then droppy got a new name and it was hails. Then hails flew back on to ground and in to a river and melted in to rain again. That is called condensation.
The three special words are Evaporation Precipitation and Condensation.

The water cycle
Rain or any sort of water collects up and makes rivers, puddles or ponds and eventually evaporates into water vapour. Then it goes up to the clouds. Because it is so cold, the vapour condensates and turns into water again. When the cloud gets heavy, the water precipitates as rain, snow, sleet or hail. When the water falls, it goes to lakes, rivers, ponds, reservoirs and glaciers and eventually it ends up in the sea.
This process is called the water cycle and it happens again and again.
There was once a raindrop that had been through the water cycle so many times he is going to tell you all about it. “At the start of the water cycle, the water evaporates into the air, that is called evaporation. Then the air goes all the way up and because it’s so cold it turns back into water and that makes clouds. This is called condensation. When the water droplets in the clouds get heavy they fall as rain, snow, sleet or hail onto the sea and ground and the tips of mountains. This is called precipitation. Now I have finished talking I hope you all remember this. Good luck!
One day there was a rain drop in the sea floating in a water cycle. Until the sun evaporated the raindrop and his sea water friends he turned into a water vapor (gas) his fellow sea friends and himself gone up into the cloud. When they gathered in the cloud it started to condensate and get full. Eventually the wind blew the cloud into the snowy mountains. Suddenly the cloud precipitated snow in the mountains. Eventually the snow melted and the raindrop and his sea water friends glided their journey to the sea forever and ever.
