What is the hydrosphere?

The hydrosphere is all the water on Earth.

I would like to know how and where I can find water. Can you tell me?


LIQUID (covers most of the Earth's surface) is found in oceans, seas, rivers and lakes.
SOLID (snow and ice) is found in the polar regions and on mountains.
GAS (water vapor) is found in the atmosphere.

  • (...) are the movements of large masses of ocean water in the same direction.

To remember we are going to make these activities:
