L.C. To explain the part played by evaporation and condensation in the water cycle and associate the rate of evaporation with temperature.
During our lesson on Friday, we learnt about the issues surrounding the water cycle.
The higher the temperature, the more water is evaporated.
The air can hold more water vapour (as a result of air getting warmer) which can lead to rainstorms.
Intense rainstorms lead to flooding. As a result, the water ruins off into rivers and streams, preventing soil from being dampened.
Consequently, this increases the risk of drought.
A drought is a long amount of time with less-than-average amounts of rain or snow in a particular region.
Writing around the diagram on Seesaw, summarise each stage of the water cycle. Make sure you use as much scientific vocabulary as you can.
Here is a word bank including some of the vocabulary we have learnt over the past few weeks to help you.
