Science - Waterways Info Report


The Highlighted parts show that I have used Punctuation and Sentence Structure.

Below is my New Zealand Waterways Information Report.

New Zealand Waterways

The Water Cycle is a process that water goes through between land, ocean and the atmosphere.  The Water is recycled throughout the process. The steps in the Water Cycle are: Evaporation, Condensation, Precipitation and Runoff/Groundwater.

Evaporation is when the sun heats the water and then turns the water into gas.  Gas in the air is called humidity, and in some hot places, have a high amount of humidity.  When it is hot outside; the evaporation is greater.  After this stage in the water cycle is finished it is Condensation/ Precipitation which takes you furthermore in the Water Cycle.


The word Condensation is water vapour gas condenses back into liquid, Water and Ice.  Precipitation is the stage where Rain falls from the clouds.  There can be many different types of Precipitation For Example [Rain, Snow, Sleet and Hail.]  The next stage is when the water hits the ground that stage is Runoff/Groundwater.


Runoff/Groundwater is when the water runs off into the Ocean it either Runs off Underground or on land.  When the Runoff reaches Rivers, Lakes and Oceans, it keeps the water cycle going.  Furthermore, the water underground moves due to gravity, downward and sideways.  Runoff is important, because it flows over the land, some of it soaks into the ground, thus recharging groundwater.


Overall, you can see that the water cycle has a few steps that are important and would be interesting to learn about.  Remember the water cycle has 5 main steps:  Evaporation, Condensation, Precipitation and Runoff/Groundwater.  If we didnt have the water cycle, we wouldn’t have clean water.
