The experiment is set up in a jar that closes tightly. The natural water cycle is replicated in the jar.
The water evaporates from the bowl, condenses on the lid, and drips on the plants and soil. It then evaporates again from the soil and the plant’s surface.

Information and ideas:
Only one answer is correct for some questions, while multiple answers are correct for other questions.
The graphic gives students instructions on how to set up a small-scale water cycle.
The questions support the students’ observations and subsequent guesses.
