USGS Water Cycle Image

This diagram, released in 2022, depicts the global water cycle. It shows how human water use affects where water is stored, how it moves, and how clean it is. This diagram is available in English and Spanish and can be printed as a poster for the entire classroom. Alternatively, it can be projected on the screen as a guide/resource for students learning about the water cycle.

The USGS Water cycle homepage provides a short reading to assist with interpretation of the diagram. This reading would be excellent to use as practice for interpreting scientific text. This website also provides a glossary of terms that can be used to build science vocabulary
