Tamil Nadu state government made rain water harvesting as mandatory in the year 2001.

5. What is needed to construct a rain water harvesting pit?

Gravels and coarse sand are needed to construct a rain water harvesting pit.


V. Answer in detail.

1. What is water cycle? Write any three importances of water cycle.

The continuous cycle through which water is circulated by different process like evaporation, condensation and precipitation is called water cycle.

Benefits of water cycle

• It improves the availability of ground water.

• It controls the Earth's Temperature.

• It recycles the Earth's supply of water constantly.

2. What is rain water harvesting? List out the advantages of rain water harvesting.

'Rainwater harvesting' is the process of collecting and storing rainwater for future use. Rainwater can be collected in natural reservoirs or artificial tanks.

Benefits of rainwater harvesting.

• It increases the ground water level.

• It can be used for agriculture.

• It increases the availability of water for living things.


VI. Colour the given picture and write the correct name in the given blanks.

 (Precipitation, Evaporation, Condensation, Water storage)


VII. Project.

 Make a model of house with roof top rain water harvesting system.

Let us do

See the given pictures and write down the state of each objects. (Solid, Liquid, Gas )

Let us do

Fill in the boxes given below with correct answers.

(Liquid, Solid, Melting, Freezing, Cooling, Heating, Gas)

Change of States in water

Try to Answer

1. Why water is a good example for all states of matter?

Answer: Because it is the only natural substance that can exist in all three states of matter at the temperatures normally found on Earth.

2. Which of the following is in liquid state? Rain/Ice/Snow

Answer: Rain

Let us do

 Fill water in an ice tray and keep it in the freezer. After few hours, take it out. What happened to the water?

The water changed from liquid state to solid state. It became ice.

• Now keep this ice tray on a table for some time. What happens to the ice?

Ice cubes melt and turn into water. Now water changes from solid state to liquid state.

• Pour water from the ice tray into a kettle. Ask an elder at your home to heat the kettle and observe the mouth of the kettle when the water starts boiling. What do you see?

We see white smoke (water vapour) coming out from the mouth of the kettle. Water changes from liquid state to gaseous state. It became steam.

Think and answer

What happens to the water in a wet cloth?

Answer: The water in a wet cloth gets evaporated. Hence the cloth gets dried up.
