What is this water cycle diagram pack about?

This set of printable worksheets introduces the main concepts of the hydrologic cycle to kids.

The pack is structured in a way that allows kids to first be introduced to the key elements of the water cycle, before getting the opportunity to learn, practise and test their knowledge.

Children will learn how water drops in the form of water vapor evaporate from lakes, rivers, oceans and other water sources before forming clouds high up in the atmosphere.

Water then falls from these clouds as rain, hail, sleet or snow and ends up back on land. Water flows back to the sea or ocean. This cycle repeats itself and is known as the water cycle.

What’s inside this label the water cycle worksheet PDF?

This 10-page water cycle worksheets kit includes 8 pages of free printables for kids.

Read on to find out exactly what’s inside!

  • A simple water cycle diagram that introduces the key vocabulary of condensation, precipitation, collection and evaporation, and shows the process of the water cycle in stages.

    This image includes mountains, trees and plants. It shows how water is warmed by the sun and rises as a gas to form a cloud high up in the air.

    The illustration also demonstrates how this water falls back to the earth, is absorbed into the ground or makes its way back to a water source to complete the process.
  • A fill in the blanks water cycle diagram which kids can use to write out the name of each stage in its correct place within the cycle.
  • A fun cut-out-and-stick water cycle activity that provides an engaging way to explore this subject. Kids cut out key terms from a word bank as well as arrows, and glue them onto a blank diagram to complete it and create their own water cycle illustration.
  • A handy description sheet which contains helpful, easy-to-understand definitions of the main ideas and terms that make up the water cycle. This contains simple sentences suitable for younger as well as older children.
  • A match-up water cycle worksheet where kids need to link images of the stages to the correct terms.
  • A water cycle word bank with spelling practice. Students can trace, copy and cover the key vocabulary to reinforce and support spelling of these tricky terms.
  • A knowledge checklist to help kids evaluate and celebrate their learning progress. They can tick off each ‘I can’ statement once they are confident they have achieved that learning step.

The entire PDF download can also be used as a set of water cycle colouring pages, and the illustrations would make a great classroom or bedroom display once coloured in!
