WATER CYCLE STAGES
Evaporation is when the water becomes vaporised by the sun. This is when the liquid becomes gas and rises. This is the very first stage of the cycle.
The water vapor then turns into clouds and form water droplets. If they become cool they turn into ice crystals.
When the clouds get heavy the water droplets (rain) and ice crystals (snow and hail) fall down and hits the surface. This is the thrid section of the cycle.
When the rain or snow falls down, it runs down the moutains and hills into lakes and rivers. after this it goes back around the cycle continusiouly. This is the final part of the cycle.
