Creating our own Water Cycle

In Geography, Neptune have been learning all about the water cycle in their Rivers topic. We found out that the water cycle has 4 stages before the cycle repeats. We did an experiment to show how the water cycle works by placing a cup in the middle of a bowl, filling the bowl with hot water and then covering the bowl with cling film to catch the water vapour. We saw the water collecting on the cling film before it began to fall and collect in the cup. The children saw that this showed when the clouds get too heavy that’s when it starts to rain.
