What’s Up & Down With Water?

There’s water in our sinks, water in our refrigerator, water on our windshields, and water under our boats. Where does all that water come from, and where does it go?

For the most part, the earth’s water goes around in a cycle.  The scientific terms used in the cycle are evaporation, transpiration, condensation, precipitation, and collection.  Do you know when each of these occurs?
