Water Cycle Craft Activity
This water cycle craft activity is suitable for various ages and learning styles. It allows students to engage with the water cycle on a kinesthetic and visual level, fostering a deeper connection to the topic. Best of all, it can be hung in the classroom for a beautiful display.
The template includes the following:
- A cloud-shaped heading
- A teardrop to complete condensation, precipitation, evaporation, collection, runoff, infiltration, and transpiration.
- Blank tear drops for younger students to draw pictures of the stages of the water cycle.
✂️ Give Them the (Safety) Scissors
This template makes for a bonus cutting skills activity, depending on your students’ ages and abilities.
With adult supervision, cutting skills help students work multiple muscle groups and their brains, plus:
- strengthen finger and hand muscles
- build dexterity and fine motor skills
- improve hand-eye coordination
- develop focus and attention.
And all of these skills are necessary to use a pencil and a fork; button a shirt and tie shoes; write, type, and swipe.
Scissor skills are brain and muscle skills!
