- What is the water cycle?
- Why do we say that the Earth’s water is recycled?
- What is evaporation? How does it occur?
- If oceans are constantly losing water through evaporation, why aren’t they becoming more shallow and salty all the time?
- What do we know about the atmosphere and its ability to hold water vapor?
- What is condensation? What causes it? Name visible examples of condensation.
- What is the relationship between condensation and precipitation?
- What happens to precipitation after it falls to the Earth’s surface?
- What is groundwater? Why is it important?
- Compare running water, standing water and groundwater.
- What is the significance of runoff?
- Why is the pollution of groundwater so serious?
