How Do We Get Salt?
By Cindy Grigg
  

1     Have you ever gone swimming in the ocean? Have you ever gotten any sea water in your mouth? If you have, you know how salty it is. We get salt from the sea.
 
2     In hot, sunny, and dry places near the ocean, people have built shallow basins. Sea water is pumped into the basins. The hot sun makes the water evaporate. The water changes into a gas. The gas is called water vapor. It becomes part of the air. The salt in the sea water does not evaporate. It is left behind.
 
3     People gather the salt from the basins. The salt is sifted and cleaned. Large chunks of it are broken into small grains. It is put in packages. It is sent to stores for us to buy.
