How does Earth's water move through the water cycle?
Water is constantly evaporating from the surfaces of oceans and large lakes, puddles....warm air carries the evaporated water molecules upward. The water vapor cools and condenses into liquid water and form clouds. As more water vapor condenses, the water droplets grow larger and larger eventually falling back to Earth in the form of rain , snow, hail, or sleet. This is called prcipitation.
