I can take action to improve the water cycle in Canterbury


In this project I was working with Natasha and we decided to create a water filter

Here is a link what we made.

In this project we decided that our success criteria were: A good water filter needs... Why is this important? The right materials for the job So we can make a good water filter. Needs  to produce drinkable water Because if the water wasn’t drinkable you would get sick if you drank it. Needs to be strong So it doesn't break and it can carry all the water and rocks inside it. Needs to last for as long as possible Because the water filter would be useless if it only worked for one lot of water. Needs to work in all areas Other wise you would have to leave it in the same area and you might need it somewhere else
Overall our project met meet this criteria because... it was strong,long lasting,works in all areas,produces drinkable water and we had the right materials.

THE WATER CYCLE



INTRODUCTION
The water cycle is a process where water goes through key stages.E.g evaporation, condensation, precipitation, runoff and Groundwater. There is no start or end to this process, this water has been recycled from around 4 billion years ago.

EVAPORATION Evaporation is where the sun heats up the water and turns it into vapour. This process is an invisible process you cannot see this happening, usually. Do you know that plants and trees can also lose water into the atmosphere, through their leaves this process is known as Transpiration. Two of the next steps are Condensation and Precipitation.
