I’M GOING IN CIRCLES! (OR IS THAT CYCLES?)

Introduction:

As you learned in the first quarter, matter cycles. That is, matter is continually re-used or recycled. Water is matter. It has been used over and over again. And it will be used over and over again as long as the sun shines……which should be a very, very long time!

Water moves through different holding places (reservoirs) in the hydrosphere. Then energy from the sun moves water from one reservoir to another resulting in the water cycle.

The water we use has been cycled and recycled thousands, maybe millions of times. Take a glass of water. Inside that glass are more that ten million water molecules that once passed through the body of bison on the mid-western plains of the U.S. Also in that glass are more than ten million water molecules that passed once or twice through a dinosaur. Chances are good that you are drinking water used by Martin Luther King, George Washington, Napoleon, or Socrates. Imagine!

And, for this assignment, imagination is what you need, coupled with facts of course! Imagine you are a water molecule traveling through the water cycle. Write about your adventures.

Assignment:

Pretend you are a water molecule. Write about your adventures as you move through the water cycle. Your story MUST:
