Evaporation is when water turns from a liquid to a gas.

More About Water

Water Is a Solid

Sometimes we use water as a solid. Water becomes solid when it freezes. It is called ice.

Ice is hard. It cannot be poured. You can pick up and move a solid. Can you pick up a liquid?

Did you know that these are solids?


Water Is a Gas

Water evaporates and changes into vapour when it is heated. Vapour is a gas. You cannot always see the gas in the air.

Did you know that fog and mist are not gases? They are actually tiny water drops in the air.

Water turns to a gas as it evaporates from clothes drying on a clothesline.
