The water cycle is the continuous process by which water circulates and moves between the Earth’s surface, the atmosphere, and back. It is a vital natural process that ensures water availability for various ecosystems and human activities. The four main stages and vocabulary that students will be exposed to when learning about the water cycle are:

  • Evaporation
