The water around you and the water that you drink is actually the same water that the dinosaurs and even our early human ancestors drank! How? It is all because the Earth cycles the water through the water cycle. The water cycle is the process of evaporation, condensation, precipitation and runoff. This process happens over and over again forever. The water all around us is the same water. So, water in a frozen, liquid, or gas form has always been there, even since the dinosaurs!!
