Water Cycle Poem

Water goes,
Round and round,
From the sky,
To the ground,
In a cycle,
You can't see,
Water comes to you and me!
Evaporation is a start,
But it's not the only part,
From sea to sky,
Vapor floats,
But leaves enough to float in boats!
In the sky,
Water cools,
Forming clouds,
Like fish form schools,
Condensation makes it dense,
Like dollars have one hundred cents!
Then it falls, precipitation!
It's like group participation...
Rain and hail,
Sleet and snow,
Water falls,
Plants can grow...
Fills up lakes, and streams, and seas,
We can drink it as we please,
Water used to brush our teeth,
Water wets the coral reef!
Water, water, what we need,
We need water to succeed,
And water cycle keeps it fresh,
Water cycle, you're the best!

What is the water cycle?
The water cycle enables Earth to maintain a constant amount of water. Yes, the Earth has been using the same water over and over again for millions of years! This is because water travels 'around and around' in what's known as the water cycle. Here are the basic principles of the cycle:
The sun causes water to evaporate and travel into the air in the form of water vapor.
In the sky the vapor cools and condenses to form clouds.
Eventually, the water falls back to Earth in different forms of precipitation (rain, snow, sleet, hail).
