These worksheets look at the cycle that water goes through across the Earth.

Water is essential for all life on this planet. Just fewer than three-quarters of the Earth is covered in water. We commonly think of water as being a liquid that we find in our rivers, streams, and oceans. Water is actually in many places at once. Right now those bodies of water are evaporating into water vapor. Plants are giving off lots of water as they undergo the process of photosynthesis and it is evaporating as well. That water is being cooled and slowly forming clouds. Once the clouds become heavily filled with water they give off liquid water in the form of rain, sleet, or snow.

The worksheets include atmospheric currents and the movement of water through its various forms.

The water cycle is the continuous circulation of water from the earth to the oceans, to the air, and back to the land. Indicate which part of the diagram depicts the three major methods by which water is transferred (condensation, evaporation, and precipitation) and then describe the entire water in your own words in the space provided.
