Explain the 4 parts of the water cycle. You must get all 4 parts correct with the scientific names!
First the sun heats up water on the ground which causes it to turn into a gas (evaporation). Next the water vapor cools down in the atmosphere and turns into clouds (condensation). Clouds get heavy with water droplets and it falls as rain or snow (precipitation). Water collects on the ground in lakes, rivers, oceans, puddles, etc. (collection).
