Lesson 2: The Water Cycle

Rain in the Rainforest
Grandidier's Stream Frog
Look up! See the rain falling.
Look down! The ground is wet. Think about this—the rain water moves in a big circle. This big circle moves back and forth between the sky and the ground. All plants need water. All animals—like this little frog—need water too.

A lot of rain falls in the rainforest. It can rain there almost every day. The rain falls on the trees, plants, and animals. Water fills up streams and rivers. See the little waterfall? That can happen when the stream gets lots of rain. Rain is good for the rainforest. Every living thing in the rainforest needs water.
