Are you in need of printable visual aid to learn about the water cycle? You sure don’t have to go to a book store because we have already listed for you a pack of free and printable water cycle diagrams for kids to help you or your kids learn about the water cycle. These printable diagrams of the water cycle are easier for you to understand, and we also give you a brief explanation of each of the steps involved, all provided below in the diagrams.
Studying the water cycle will be more difficult without looking at the visual representation of the cycle itself. These diagrams will show you the four main stages in the cycle that you can spot in all of these water cycle diagrams for kids. These stages are evaporation, condensation, precipitation, and collection. By looking at the pictures of the cycle, you will get the idea of what each process is about.
The evaporation happens when warmth from the sun causes water from oceans, lakes, streams, ice, and soils to rise into the air and turn into gas. Condensation happens is when water vapor in the air cools down and turns back into liquid water. Meanwhile, precipitation occurs when water falls from clouds in the sky. The collection is the last step which occurs when water that falls from the clouds as rain, snow, hail or sleet, collects in the oceans, rivers, lakes, streams. Spot all of those processes in the water cycle diagram below.
All of these processes of the water cycle are powered by the sun’s energy and by gravity. All of those processes are illustrated in the labeled diagrams of the water cycle above which will make it easy for kids to study it. All of the diagrams are printable, just click on the image of the diagram to download and print it!
