The Sun and the Water Cycle – Day 2

Water Cycle

Learning Target: I can explain how the Sun and the ocean interact in the water cycle.

Think about these questions today as we review what we know about the Sun, moon, and Earth:

  • Since most of the Earth’s water is in the oceans, how does the water get to plants and animals far from the coast?
  • Where does all the energy needed to purify and move the water come from?


  • fresh water
  • salt water


  • Discuss this image:  Water on Earth
  • Read over the questions at the top of this page and be thinking about them during today’s activity.
