The Water Cycle
By Sharon Fabian
  

1     If you haven't heard this before, it might sound a little disgusting, but it's true. The water that you drink today might be the same water that your little brother took a bath in last year. It might be the same water that people on the other side of the world used to wash their clothes or cook their vegetables one thousand years ago. It might even be the same water that a Tyrannosaurus rex drank to wash down a hearty meal millions of years ago!
 
2     The water that we have on the Earth today is the same water that the Earth has always had, and the same water that it always will have. The Earth's water constantly recycles itself in a process that is called the water cycle.
 
3     The water cycle has three main stages, evaporation, condensation, and precipitation, which repeat over and over again endlessly. This process cycles water from the Earth, through the air, to the clouds, and back to Earth again.
