1 The Water Cycle 1/2/3. Finding out about the Water Cycle Aims: To enable pupils to learn and understand what happens at each stage of the Water Cycle To introduce specific vocabulary related to the Water Cycle Materials: Worksheet 1a/1b Worksheet 2 - printed on card Worksheet 3 Scissors, glue sticks, paper fasteners, dictionary Method: Ask pupils where they think fresh water comes from Explain that the Water Cycle is a natural system in our environment and it is called a cycle because it is continuous Hand out matching game and run as a class activity matching the words and pictures The next task is to put them in order Hand out Worksheet 1a and 1b. Ask pupils to cut out shapes and glue them into the correct place on the picture so that it will show the Water Cycle Pupils can then add words next to the pictures using the matching game to check their work Hand out Worksheet 3 at the appropriate level and ask pupils to complete Review their answers

2 S aving Water The Water Cycle - Worksheet 1a Use these words Activity: 1. Cut around the shapes on Worksheet 1b. 2. Stick them onto the diagram above in the correct order to explain how the Water Cycle works.

3 S aving Water The Water Cycle - Worksheet 1b Finding out about the Water Cycle Use these words wos evaporation cloud formation precipitation condensation Activity: 1. Cut around the shapes and stick them onto the diagram on worksheet 1a in the correct order to explain how the Water. Cycle works.

4 The Water Cycle - Worksheet 2 Water r Cycle Matching Game Match the words to the pictures condensation cloud formation Hard level Activity: -Cut out circles -Make a hole in the middle of each one evaporation - Fasten together and match words to pictures precipitation

5 SThe aving Water Water Cycle - Worksheet 3 The Water Cycle Story The Water Cycle is a natural system in our environment. It has no beginning and no end. Water goes round in a circle between the sea, air and the ground. Use the list on the left to fill in the missing words to tell the Water Cycle story. Use these words: - sun - vapour - evaporation - condenses - cloud - rain - snow - rivers 1. When the s shines on the sea, warm air rises and forms water v _. This is called e. 2. The water vapour in the air c into lots of tiny drops of water so small that we cannot see them. 3. The tiny droplets bump into each other forming bigger drops that we can see as a c. 4. When the drops are big and heavy they fall as r _, hail or s _. 5. This falls onto the land and into the rivers. The r _ flow into the sea and everything starts again.

6 SThe aving Water Water Cycle - Worksheet 3 The Water Cycle Story The water cycle is a natural system in our environment. It has no beginning and no end. Water goes round in a circle between the sea, air and the ground. Ha rd level Use these words: invisible rain snow vapour drops evaporation cloud rivers ocean condensation sun cooler Find the meaning of these words: - evaporation - condensation - precipitation Use the list on the left to fill in the missing words to tell the water cycle story. When the s shines on the o, warm air rises and forms water v _. This process is called e. The water vapour in the air c into lots of tiny d of water, so small we cannot see them. This warm moist air rises up into the sky. As the water v _ rises high up in the sky the air gets c _. The water vapour condenses making the tiny drops of water in the vapour a bit bigger. They are no longer i and form a c. The clouds may be blown towards the land and precipitation as r _, hail or s _ occurs. This falls onto the land and into the r _. The rivers flow into the oceans and everything starts again.

7 The Water Cycle 4. What happens when the sun heats the water in the sea? Aims: To enable pupils to understand the process of evaporation in the Water Cycle Materials: A bucket and some chalk for each group Worksheet at appropriate level Timer Digital camera (optional) Method: Hand out worksheet to each group and discuss the experiment. Walk around the playground or other areas of the school to look for a suitable sunny site Allow time for each group to create their puddle and take photographs Pupils visit their puddle after one hour and photograph or draw what they see Pupils return to class and write up their experiment Discuss the experiment and relate what has happened to the evaporation stage of the Water Cycle

8 Saving The Water Water Cycle - Worksheet 4 What happens when the sun heats the water in the sea? How to find out: 1. On a sunny day, put some water in your bucket and take it into the playground. 2. Find a good place to make a puddle and pour the water onto the ground. You need to find a place which has a hollow to hold the water. 3. Draw round the puddle with your chalk. 4. Wait for at least an hour and then check the puddle. You will need: Draw what has happened: a bucket of water - a piece of chalk Try to answer these questions: 1. Is the puddle bigger or smaller than it was at the start? 2. Why do you think it is smaller? 3. Where is the water that is missing from the puddle? 4. Think about the Water Cycle. What happens when the sun heats the water in the sea? 5. Which part of the Water Cycle does this experiment show? evaporation condensation cloud formation precipitation Clues to help you: When the water gets hot, some of it evaporates to make water vapour. This is warm air which holds lots of tiny drops of water so small we cannot see them. This warm air rises up into the sky.

15 Saving The Water Water Cycle - Worksheet 6 How are clouds formed? How to find out: 1. Fill the bottle with some hot water. Leave for a few minutes then ask an adult to pour most of it away. You will need: 2. Put your ice cube on top of the bottle. 3. Put the black paper behind the bottle and watch what happens next. - some hot water in a jug - clear glass bottle - an ice cube - some black paper Write up your experiment: Start like this: 1. What we used. 2. What we did. 3. What happened. Try to answer these questions: 1. What was in the warm air rising up from the hot water? 2. What happened when the warm air hit the ice cube? 3. Think about the water cycle. What do you think happens to the warm moist air rising up from the sea as it gets higher and higher. Clues to help you: As the water vapour rises high up in the sky, the air gets cooler. The water vapour condenses making the tiny drops of water in the vapour a bit bigger. They are no longer invisible and form a cloud.

16 The Water Cycle 7. Making Rain Aim: To provide experience of making rain Materials: Plastic fish tank Cling film Ice cubes Worksheet 7 at appropriate level Video or digital camera if available Method: This experiment may be carried out by small groups of pupils at different times during a day or a week - approximately 15 minutes will be needed to set up and carry out the experiment Divide pupils into small groups Hand out equipment and task card at appropriate level Discuss the task and check understanding Pupils carry out the experiment and if possible video/photograph what happens Pupils write up their experiment and discuss findings Pupils can do the potted plant experiment as an extension to this activity

17 Saving The Water Water Cycle - Worksheet 7 Making rain How to find out: 1. Put some warm water in a plastic fish tank. 2. Stretch cling film over the top of the tank. 3. Put 3 or 4 ice cubes in a pile at one end of the cling film. Pucker the surface of the cling film so that they are kept in the same position. Watch what happens. You will need: Try to answer these questions: 1. Where does it start to rain? 2. Why does it rain there? 3. Where does the rain fall? Think about the Water Cycle. What happens to the rain after it falls to the ground? -plastic fish tank -some cling film -some ice cubes Clues to help you: When you breathe out, water evaporates from your lungs. It forms vapour in the air. How ice cubes in a beaker cause condensation. The ice cubes in the beaker start to melt. The air in the beaker is warm to start with and the water evaporates. The air in the beaker slowly cools down as the ice cube melts and eventually the air is cold enough for the water droplets to condense on the surface of the cling film. This is because the air in the beaker is now colder than the air in the classroom.
