Did you know that water is not always liquid? Water on the earth is heated up by the sun. When the temperature is high, it becomes a gas. When water becomes a gas, we cannot see it. Then where does the gas go? It moves in the air. If the air is warm, the water vaporrises. If the air is cool, the water vapor turns back into small droplets of liquid. Sometimes these droplets form a cloud, and when the cloud becomes too heavy, water falls down to earth as rain or snow. The water that falls back to the earth is then heated by the sun, and the cycle repeats. This is called the water cycle.
