Water planet

Did you know?

The water on the planet is as old as the dinosaurs! globe

The water on Earth continually gets recycled through the water cycle. It goes from a solid (ice), liquid (water) and a gas (vapour), and covers about 70% of the Earth’s surface. 

Out of all the water on Earth only 1% of it is available for us to use and drink - the rest is locked up in oceans and ice caps.

People in rich countries use 10 times more water than people in poor countries.
