  1. :we need water to live and survive and to drink and if we don’t have water we can’t do any of that.
    :Animals will die or thirst to death and plants will rot until there black.
    :we can run out of water if everyone used water at the same time we will probably run out but not all so no.
    :a water cycle is water that comes from the ground and goes to the air and when it rains it goes through the ground and makes a giant underground puddle.
    : water is from ocean rivers streams and lakes.

  2. Water is very important to earth because without water, all living things would die out of dehydration, and there would be no life at all, so you wouldn’t be alive at all, and there would be no way of getting the form of life back alive!

    Plants and animals can not live without water because plants need to grow with water, they’re like humans and animals because the plant needs the sun, water except no food. Animals are the exact same as humans and plants because without water they would die out of dehydration.

    No. We cannot run out of water, because the clouds cannot evaporate that much water, it can only evaporate thin bits of water at a time. It would take billions of years to evaporate all the water in this whole entire earth. This is a shocking fact, all the ocean and sea has been in the same place since the dinosours were here.

    The water cycle starts by the water getting evaporated. It travels into the clouds, then the clouds start raining, it goes into the ocean and starts all over again. (Don’t blame me if I get it wrong.) Thats why it is called a water cycle.

    water is stored in many places. You have got a river, a dam, a pond and a lake. But water is processed and cleaned at decalination plant.

  3. Why is water important humans and life on earth?
    Water is important to humans and life on earth because if you did not have water you would be dehydrated and die probably.
    Could plants and animals live without water?
    NO!
    Could we ever run out of water?
    No, because we have a water cycle and It has been around since the people weren’t around.
    Could we ever run out of water?
    A water cycle is when the water falls down by the clouds and then it goes into the sea or lake and then the water rises and it separates the water from the lake or the sea and then It goes back into a cloud.
    Where is water stored around the world?
    So people can get the water easy than going into the one spot.

  4. Water is important to humans and life on earth because if we had no water we would dehydrate and when we dehydrate we die and if we had no water the world will dry up and everything will be extinct.
    Animals and plants could not live without water because their body will dry up, they will go thirsty, they will dehydrate and they will die.
    We could run out of water only if everyone in the world kept the water running for a very long time without turning the taps off and if everyone was wasting water.
    The water circle is a continuous circle where water evaporates, travels into the air and becomes part of the clouds, falls down to earth, and then evaporates again. This repeats again and again in a never-ending cycle. Water keeps moving and changing from a solid to a liquid to a gas, over and over again.
    Water is stored in water towers, pips and special water tubs under the round.

  5. Water is a precious substance that all living things need. without water we would all die! It takes a lot of time to evaporate thick water such as the water but the water it can handle are puddles and thin floods.

  6. If nobody has water people will die and plants and animals will die of thist and there will be dead and when it rains wets the ground and makes rivers and everything can drink.

  7. Term 2 Inquiry Unit Task
    Water
    Why is water important to humans and life on earth? Water is important to EVERY living thing on earth. Water is needed to keep all living things alive, and slowly we are running out of usable water which without water we would die.

    Could plants and animals live without water? Plants and animals definitely could NOT live without water because the animals would dehydrate and die from dehydration. The plants would dry out, crumble up then rot until they break from their roots.

    Could we ever run out of water? We could never run out of water, but. We can run out of usable water that we need to keep all living things survive! We can’t survive because we will dehydrate and not be able to have enough energy to keep ourselves alive.

    What is the water cycle? The water evaporates from wherever it is stored; it then formats into a cloud. After a while the cloud grows bigger and reaches the precipitation, and then the water reaches a lake and follows through until it reaches the ocean. After it goes to the ocean it evaporates and the cycle starts over again.

    Where is water stored around the world? Water around the world is stored in rivers, lakes, streams but most of the water is stored in the ocean.

  8. Water is very important to earth because if you don’t have water then nothing with be alive because they got dehydrated and die.
    We can’t run out of water because when it rains and falls into our tanks and all the rain water keeps repeating and we use it.
    The water cycle continuous circle that keeps repeating it travels through the air and turns into clouds falls down to earth and it evaporates again.

  9. Why is water important to humans and life on earth?
    Because we can’t live without water because plant’s ,animals won’t can’t survive and we can’t cook whit

    Could plants and animals live without water?
    No, because if you don’t drink water you skin is really dry and you mouth be all dry, and if your body doesn’t get water you will soon die of thirst.
    Could we ever run out of water?
    No, because if we still have the same amount of water that was here when the dinosaurs were around.
    What is the water cycle?
    When is a really hot day the water from the ocean evaporates, it transforms into a cloud and after it precipitates it starts to rain and drops to the earth where it runs into streams and rivers and then into storage dams.

    Where is water stored around the world?
    In the oceans, rivers, lakes, dams and underground.

  10. 1. Why is water important to humans and life on earth?
    Water is important because if we did not have water on earth the earth will not work out at all and we would not live for very long.
    2. Could plants and animal live without water?
    Plants could not live without water because many plants need water to survival and animals need water to also survival because many animals live in water and have to drink the water.
    3. Could we ever run out of water?
    No we can never run out of water because more than 7,000 years ago when the dinosaurs were around there were the same amount as today.
    4. What is the water cycle?
    Condensation from the clouds turns into heated water called evaporation and becomes rain and it rain into lakes and damps and go into the ocean which go into rivers.
    5. Where is water stored around the
    Water is stored in many places in which are in river damps streams and the ocean.

  11. We need water to stay alive for ever. Animals and plants need water to survive.
    We can never run out of water because we have had the same amount of water since the dinosaurs were here.
    The water comes down and then the water turns in to a gas evaporates by the sun.
    The water is stored in water storage until you use it.

  12. Why is water important to human and animals on earth?
    Water is important to human, animals and plants because if we didn’t have water on the earth all of the people would die of thirst and we would be really thirsty. If everybody has no water to drink we would die because everybody needs water inside of them and if we didn’t have any water inside of our bodies our body wouldn’t resolve. Everybody needs water in them to live and people can’t live for more than two days without drinking water.

    Could plants and animals live without water?
    Plants and animals can live without water because plants only grow with water and if they were no water plants would be turning dry and they would die. Water is the only thing that makes plants grow and if they didn’t have any water getting poured on them they would die of thirst. Plants are living creatures that need water as much as humans need them because if humans didn’t have water they would die and if plants didn’t have any water they would die just like humans.

    Could we ever run out of water?
    We could never run out of water because scientist says that we have had the same water like we have since the age of dinosaurs. The water will never run out because when it rains and it stops raining and it gets warmer the water evaporates up into the clouds and the water goes up because it has turned into air.

    What is the cycle?
    The rain turns into rain when the weather gets warmer the water turns into air and then it evaporates up into the clouds and then the clouds go into cloud formation than it goes into precipitation and then it starts to rain and then the cycle goes again.

    Where is the water stored around the world?
    When it rains on hills the water run down the hills and then at the bottom of the hills there are streams and rivers and then the water runs into that and then the water runs inside a tunnel that runs into the ocean. When the water runs into the ocean the water evaporates up into the clouds and then the water cycle starts.

  13. Why is water important to humans and life on earth?
    Water is important to humans and all life because we would die without it, it is important to the body because we need water for our organism’s because our organism’s is mostly made up of water. Without water our bodies won’t be able to function properly and they will shut down
    Could plants and animals live without water?
    No, but they can survive for a majority of time. Plants and animals need water like we do, for animals their organism’s need water to survive like ours. For plants they need water to grow and if they don’t get water they will die.
    Could we ever run out of water?
    No we could never run out of water unless it never rains again, it would take thousands of years to dry up the ocean and in that time we would probably have a solution to fix it. We will never run out of water because the water on the ground will be turned into water vapour and rise into the clouds and it will rain back down on us when the cloud is heavy and full. Thus restarting the cycle.
    What is the water cycle?
    The rain on the ground will be turned into water vapour and rise into the clouds and it will rain back down on us when the cloud is heavy and full.
    Where is water stored around the world?
    Water is stored in the ocean, lakes, rivers, in pipes and storage tanks.
