The Water Cycle: Worksheets and Cut and Paste Activities and Jigsaw Puzzles (Colour/b&w)

This resource comprises 5 worksheets on the water cycle and a missing jigsaw activity.

The worksheets are also on PowerPoint and PDF format.

These are additional worksheets you can give out during the lesson, use as assessment on the water cycle or as homework.

 Two worksheets require students to write about the water cycle in their own words.

 Three worksheets entail cut and paste activities. The simpler activities are cutting out the word strips and glue them onto the correct blank space to show the water cycle process.

 The other cut and paste activity requires students to write the title in their workbooks or on a separate sheet of paper. Then they write about each word, cut out the strip and glue it into their workbooks. Some students may only be able to complete 4 strips. Let them choose a word to write about.

Once the students have written something about each word, they can draw a picture for each strip.

 There is a jigsaw puzzle to complete. It has 4 pieces missing with which students complete the puzzle picture of the water cycle. When this is completed, student cut out and stick the labels into the correct spaces on the completed puzzle. A finished puzzle is included to how the puzzle should look. NB: The picture was drawn on the computer and coloured in by hand.

 Missing Jigsaw Puzzle pieces (b/w) – Print off the page with just one puzzle piece in place. Students complete the whole puzzle by cutting out the rest of the puzzles (8 pieces) and sticking them in place to complete the water cycle picture. Then as above, cut out the words and glue beneath the correct picture, e.g. precipitation would go beneath the rain cloud.

Students can then colour in.

Hope you enjoy using these resources.
