Water cycle and Weather






Did you know that we're using the same water over and over again? The water on the earth today has been there for millions of years. It moves from the earth to the air and back to the earth again through a process called the water cycle.
When you lay a wet towel outside in the hot sun, the towel dries because of evaporation. Rivers, lakes and oceans lose water everyday because of evaporation. That water travels into the air as water vapor and becomes part of a cloud. Through condensation, the water vapor in clouds becomes a liquid (such as rain, snow or sleet) or precipitation. The water then comes back to the earth and the process begins all over again.
Not all precipitation falls into bodies of water. Some rain falls on the ground where it may seep through the soil through a process called percolation. The water eventually reaches underground streams and becomes part of the groundwater system.
The Water Cycle keeps water moving - from earth to air and back to earth.
The Water Cycle keeps water changing - from liquid (rain, river water, groundwater) to gas (water vapor) and even to solid (snow and sleet).
We need to keep the water that we have free of contamination.

Task: Watch the video and read the text
after that make the task with the text and your book on page 25, explain:
  • How is the water cycle?
  • What is evaporation process?
  • What is condensation process?
  • What is the meaning of precipitation?
  • What is the meaning of percolation or infiltration process ?

How does relief shape our planet?




En nuestro planeta hay un proceso continuo de formación de terreno y de destruccción del mismo, este proceso se inicia con la desigual distribución de los materiales que forman las diferentes capas del planeta tierra, que puedes encontrar en esta presentación interactiva:

The structure of the Earth

The earth — think it's solid as a rock?

Our planet might seem fixed and rigid, but a closer look reveals that it is constantly shifting under our feet. Delve into the earth's interior, learn about its tectonic plates and their movements, and discover how mountains, volcanoes, and earthquakes are formed.

Start your exploration with Earth's Structure.

Otzi, The Iceman



Otzi the Iceman, (also spelled Oetzi and known also as Frozen Fritz) is the modern nickname of a well-preserved natural mummy of a man from about 3300 BC, found in 1991 in a glacier of the Otztal Alps, near the border between Austria and Italy. The nickname comes from the valley of discovery. He rivals the Egyptian "Ginger" as the oldest known human mummy, and has offered an unprecedented view on the habits of Chalcolithic (Copper Age) Europeans.

Scientific analysis

The body has been extensively examined, measured, x-rayed, and dated. Tissues and gut contents were examined microscopically, as was the pollen found on his gear. At the time of his death, Otzi was a 30-to-45-year old man, approximately 160 cm (5'3") tall.

Analysis of pollen and dust grains and the isotopic composition of his teeth's enamel indicate that he spent his childhood near the present village of Feldthurns, north of Bolzano, but later went to live in valleys about 50 km further north.

He had 57 tattoos, some of which were located on or near acupuncture points that coincide with the modern points that would be used to treat symptoms of diseases that Otzi seems to have suffered from, such as digestive parasites and osteoarthrosis. Some scientists believe that these tattoos indicate an early type of acupuncture.

His clothes, including a woven grass cloak and leather vest and shoes, were quite sophisticated.

The shoes were waterproof and wide, seemingly designed for walking across the snow; they were constructed using bearskin for the soles, deer hide for top panels, and a netting made of tree bark. Soft grass went around the foot and in the shoe and functioned like warm socks. The shoes have since been reproduced by experts and found to constitute such excellent footwear that there are plans for commercial production.

Other items found with the Iceman were a copper axe with a yew handle, a flint knife with an ash handle, a quiver full of arrows with viburnum and dogwood shafts and flint heads, and an unfinished yew longbow that was taller than he was.

Among Otzi's possessions were two species of polypore mushrooms. One of these (the birch fungus) is known to have antibacterial properties, and was likely used for medical purposes. The other was a type of tinder fungus, included with part of what appeared to be a complex firestarting kit. The kit featured pieces of over a dozen different plants, in addition to flint and pyrite for creating sparks.

Task: You have to explain : Who was Otzi, when and where he lived, when and where was found. How many kind of tools he used, how were his clothing. Did he have anything else?
