The Environmental Protection Agency is challenging you to a pop-quiz!
From the agency’s blog:
“Find the water cycle in action and share a photo with us. We’ll combine the pictures that flow in through the end of February and share the big picture to kick off March. Upload your photos to Flickr, use the tag #watercycle, and share them with State of the Environment.”
Forget what the water cycle is? Me too. I’m frantically paging my second-grade teacher from St. Gertrude’s Elementary. How did I miss this? I think I was probably being distracted by the cerulean-colored crayon. I digress.
“Earth’s water is always in movement, and the natural water cycle, also known as the hydrologic cycle, describes the continuous movement of water on, above, and below the surface of the Earth. Water is always changing states between liquid, vapor, and ice, with these processes happening in the blink of an eye and over millions of years.”
Here’s a handy diagram (kid-friendly version here):
Ok so now that you’ve got it, what the water cycle is, submit your photos to the EPA Flickr.
