In this interactive science resource, students can move a raindrop through different parts of the water cycle. The drop begins in a cloud, and by clicking on an arrow, students can select where the drop will fall as precipitation. They can then, as the instructions indicate, continue to transfer the drop through different paths in the cycle. Clickable arrows signify processes that can transport the drop. When students place their cursor over each arrow, two text boxes appear--one contains the name of the process and another supplies a short definition of it. Precipitation, transpiration, infiltration, runoff, and melting are among the processes represented. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
