A Model of the Water Cycle

The Water Cycle is one of the major topics students are expected to understand in science. This is because water is such an important resource for food production, industry, and daily life. To help understand how the water cycle works, lets make a working model, using some common, household items.


How Producers Store Energy

Producers are living things that specialize in capturing energy and storing it in chemicals, such as sugars, starches, fats, and proteins. Most producers are plants, capturing solar energy through the process of photosynthesis. In that process, they use three things: energy (from sunlight), water, and carbon (from carbon dioxide.)
