Tiny Planets.

Recently, the Diagnostic Assessment Test for Andalusia asked us about Tiny Planets cartoons. We didn't know anything about them, so I've found some information and a video related to them.

Tiny Planets is a British television show. Tiny Planets follows Bing and Bong on their adventures in the Tiny Universe. Bing and Bong are two white furry creatures who live on a planet with an apparently icy climate. Their white sofa catapults them across their solar system to explore the mysteries of light and colour, animation, sound and the water cycle. Their solar system has 6 other planets, each with a speciality to it (nature, sound, light and colour, technology, "self", and "stuff", respectively).

The water cycle.

The Water Cycle is the journey water takes as it circulates from the land to the sky and back again.
The Sun's heat provides energy to evaporate water from the Earth's surface (oceans, lakes, etc.). Plants also lose water to the air (this is called transpiration). The water vapor eventually condenses, forming tiny droplets in clouds. When the clouds meet cool air over land, precipitation (rain, sleet, or snow) is triggered, and water returns to the land (or sea). Some of the precipitation soaks into the ground. Some of the underground water is trapped between rock or clay layers; this is called groundwater. But most of the water flows downhill as runoff (above ground or underground), eventually returning to the seas as slightly salty water.
