There’s plenty of big vocabulary
words to be learned when children study the water cycle
With that in mind, I designed this simple water cycle
, which provides a super-fun way to learn the water cycle & practice these new science terms.
There are 3
to choose from, plus blank templates so students can draw & write their own graphics. (See PREVIEW
All the patterns in the packet come in black & white
for students, as well as full color
, so that teachers can quickly & easily make a sample to share.
There are several “wheel” options
as well, which come with and without words, should you want your students to label
patterns are also included, so that older students can illustrate their own water cycle “pie sections”.
There is a 3-part
water cycle option: evaporation, condensation, & precipitation
; as well as a 4-sectioned
wheel that adds “accumulation”
to the cycle.
Simply pick which one is appropriate for your students, then “print & go!”
Use the anchor chart posters
to introduce and explain the water cycle, and the song
: “The Water Cycle Goes ‘Round & ‘Round” for more fun reinforcement.
When children have completed their raindrop wheel, review the water cycle using the craft as a manipulative, then have children pick a partner & take turns explaining things once more.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping you and your students have a “wheel” fun time learning & turning.
