Matariki

We are learning to present our thinking and ideas in a range of ways.  
Context: Matariki
We will have been successful when we have gathered our vocabulary around Matariki and presented it in a word cloud on our learning blog.


We went to abcya.com to build our word clouds.

Water Cycle

Water From Snow



The diagram shows some ways in which water moves in the water cycle.   


Explain what is happening in the water cycle at each of the arrows 1, 2, and 3.
Arrow 1: The water from the pool is being evaporated because of the heat of the sun causing the water to suck up into the air and causing rain clouds to form.

Arrow 2: The wetness from the clothes on the clothesline is getting evaporated by the heat of the sun, but if there was no sun it wouldn’t evaporate and the clothes won’t dry up.
Arrow 3: The water that was evaporated has risen up into to the air collect little dust particles and soaking up into one big cloud then when the cloud has too much pressure in it starts to rain.

Explain how the water that falls as snow in the mountains might get to the sea.
The clouds that are up in the mountains might get shoved by the wind pushing the clouds out to sea causing melting the snow to turn into rain
drops.
