The Rise and Fall of Water
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     Water - now you see it, now you don't. What happened to that puddle that was on the sidewalk after the rain? This magic act is all part of the water cycle.
 
2     In order to understand the water cycle, you need to know that water comes in three different "states." It can be solid, liquid, or gas. You probably think of water mostly as a liquid. It's the stuff you drink, swim in, and wash with. Water falls from the clouds as rain.
 
3     However, there is water all around us in the air. This state of water is called water vapor. When liquid water gets warm enough, it becomes a gas. This is called evaporation. You can't see water vapor, but sometimes you can feel it. If there is a lot of water vapor in the air on a hot day, you might feel sticky. People say it is humid. The warmer the air is, the more water vapor it can hold.
