Ag Ed 1 Water Movement

Ag Ed 1 students are studying how water moves through the water cycle. Students see how precipitation falls on the surface of the Earth, it does not always percolate
through the soil into the groundwater. Sometimes it flows into lakes, rivers, streams,
and even all the way to the ocean. Landforms, such as mountains, valleys, and
slopes, interrupt and direct the flow of water in predictable patterns. Topography is
the study of landforms and the shape of the surface of the Earth
