a.  Students know most of Earth’s water is present as salt water in the oceans,                                               which cover most of Earth’s surface.
b.  Students know when liquid water evaporates, it turns into water vapor in the air and can reappear as a liquid when cooled or as a solid if cooled below the freez­ing point of water.
