Understanding the water cycle

This lesson is part of Investigating Rivers, a unit designed for upper KS2 (Y4-6).

First the presentation looks at sources of water and highlights the importance of this critical resource. It then introduces the main processes of the water cycle including key concepts such as evaporation, condensation and precipitation.

The activity then challenges students to label a diagram of the water cycle. It is differentiated three ways:

Easier – Students have all the label clues.
Medium – Students have only four label clues.
Harder – Students have no label clues.

Extension – Students complete a cloze procedure paragraph about the water cycle.
