# 2nd Grade Science : Identify where water is on Earth

## Example Questions

### Example Question #1 : Identify Where Water Is On Earth

Which answer choice correctly lists places where water can be found on Earth?

Oceans, underground, ponds, and streams

Glaciers, lakes, icebergs, and rivers

All of the choices list places where water can be found.

Rivers, ponds, oceans, and lakes

All of the choices list places where water can be found.

Explanation:

Water is everywhere on Earth. It can be found underground, in glaciers, icebergs, lakes, streams, ponds, rivers, and oceans. About 72% of the Earth is made up of water! Looking at maps of the world can help put into perspective how much water there is on Earth.

### Example Question #2 : Identify Where Water Is On Earth

Which image correctly identifies where there is water on Earth?

Explanation:

These four images are from the same portion of the world map. A map is a great place to look for landforms, bodies of water, and landmasses. When using a map, all bodies of water will be blue, and the land may be tan, green, or in this case, multiple colors to distinguish between the countries. You may also notice that the water is not labeled. Maybe times, there will be one label for an ocean or sea, but because it is so large, there may be portions that look unlabeled.

### Example Question #3 : Identify Where Water Is On Earth

Water is found in the ocean, rivers, lakes, and ponds.

False

True

True

Explanation:

The statement is a fact, so it is true. Water can be found in oceans, rivers, lakes, ponds, and more locations. Almost three-quarters of our Earth is made of water, so you are likely to find it if you go looking.

### Example Question #11 : Liquid And Solid States Of Water

Where is most of Earth's water?

In the ground

In the sink

In the oceans

In our bodies

In the oceans

Explanation:

Most of Earth's water is found in our oceans. About 72% of the Earth is made of water, and the oceans hold about 96% of that water! Earth has water in other places (streams, underground, glaciers, icebergs, ponds, etc.), but the majority can be found in the ocean.

### Example Question #1 : Identify Where Water Is On Earth

Which part(s) of this world map identifies where water is on Earth?

The brown part of the map.

The blue and white parts of the map.

The tan part of the map.

The green part of the map.

The blue and white parts of the map.

Explanation:

When using a resource like a world map to identify where water is located on Earth, one must look for the blue and white portions of the map. Tan and green are the parts of Earth that are land. White represents clouds or at the top and bottom of the map, frozen water. The blue portions are bodies of water.

### Example Question #6 : Identify Where Water Is On Earth

This is a location where water is found on Earth. What is the name of this location?

Glacier

Ocean

Swamp

Groundwater

Swamp

Explanation:

This is a photo of a swamp. A swamp is a low-lying area that collects water. Water can be found everywhere on Earth though! Water can be found underground, in oceans, seas, ponds, lakes, rivers, glaciers, streams, our atmosphere, and more. This is just one location to find water on Earth.

### Example Question #1 : Identify Where Water Is On Earth

Water is found in many places on Earth. This large chunk of ice is one form water may take. This photo is of a __________.

swamp

stream

glacier

pond

glacier

Explanation:

This is a photo of a glacier. A glacier is a slow-moving chunk of frozen water. Water can be found everywhere on Earth, though! Water can be found underground, in oceans, seas, ponds, lakes, rivers, swamps, streams, our atmosphere, and more. This is just one location to find water on Earth.

### Example Question #8 : Identify Where Water Is On Earth

Water is found in many places on Earth. This photo is of a(n) __________.

ocean

glacier

groundwater

river

river

Explanation:

This is a photo of a river. A river is a large stream of flowing water. Water can be found everywhere on Earth, though! Water can be found underground, in oceans, seas, ponds, lakes, glaciers, swamps, streams, our atmosphere, and more. This is just one location to find water on Earth.

### Example Question #9 : Identify Where Water Is On Earth

This is a location where water is found on Earth. What is the name of this location?

Pond

Ocean

Glacier

Ice caps

Ocean

Explanation:

This is a photo of an ocean. An ocean is a large expansive collection of saltwater. Water can be found everywhere on Earth, though! Water can be found underground, in glaciers, seas, ponds, lakes, rivers, swamps, streams, our atmosphere, and more. This is just one location to find water on Earth. A majority of Earth's water (97%) is located in oceans.

### Example Question #10 : Identify Where Water Is On Earth
