Name:StephanieDate:Student Exploration: Water CycleDirections: Follow the instructions to go through the simulation. Respond to the questions andprompts in the orange boxes.Vocabulary:aquifer, condensation, evaporation, freezing, glacier, melting, phase change, precipitation,reservoir, runoff, transpiration, water cyclePrior Knowledge Question(Do this BEFORE using the Gizmo.)The water that comes out of your faucet at home used to be in the ocean. How did water get from the ocean toyour water faucet?Water from the ocean will evaporate and turn into condensation and then will turn intoprecipitation. So when it rains the water molecules from this rain might end up with and join withother molecules in different waterways such as rivers, streams or lakes that are used in cities.From here municipal utilities might take this water and draw it into local water treatment facilitieswhere they treat the water to the city standards. Afterwards, this water might end up in your tapsfor you to drink.Gizmo Warm-upWater on Earth is always in motion. These motions form arepeating circuit called thewater cycle. TheWater CycleGizmoallows you to explore the different paths water takes as it movesfrom Earth’s surface to the atmosphere and back.1.ClickOceans. What percentage of Earth’s water is found inthe oceans?
2.ClickAtmosphere. How does the Sun cause water to movefrom the oceans to the atmosphere?
