The boat’s dinghy enhanced the trip by allowing the crew to have great fun to access and reach the most incredible places.

Oceans, lakes, and rivers cover over 70% of the earth’s surface. Evaporation moves water from the surface into the air as vapour. Clouds may form. Rain and snow carry water back to the surface.

Assess a globe and a world map to consider the implications. Explain how lack of water for home, industry, and farming is an important issue.
