Water is needed for life. It makes trees and plants grow. We need water to drink. Fish and frogs are just two animals who especially depend on water to live.
Where do you find water? Lakes, creeks, rivers and the ocean are natural water resources. Glaciers, snow and ice are frozen water. When water is heated it becomes steam. If you put a glass of water on the counter it will evaporate ? it goes into air, becomes clouds and rains (or snows) again, which makes more water on the land.
