Free Cloud Worksheets

Today I have some free cloud worksheets for you.  Why? I’m in the process of making a Road Trip Travel Log for the kids for a cross-country trip this summer. This is just one of the sections, but it made sense to share this as a separate pdf file as well so that those of you working on a weather unit can find these pages more easily if they are of interest.

The idea behind these pages is for the kids to find all the different types of clouds over the month or so that we’re on the go.

There are also some photos to help the kids identify what they are seeing:

  • Cumulus
  • Cumulonimbus
  • Altocumulus
  • Contrail
  • Stratus
  • Nimbostratus
  • Altostratus
  • Stratocumulus
  • Cirrus
  • Cirrostratus
  • Cirrocumulus

Hope these are helpful! 🙂 ~Liesl

If you want an even better resource for your kids to find and identify clouds than the free printable above, you might want to check out this book: The Cloud Collector’s Handbook by Gavin Pretor-Pinney. (affiliate link)  It’s a really neat resource and has the kids (or adults!) identify and record the clouds they see.  The kids then collect “cloud-collection points” based on how hard each cloud or effect is to see.  After browsing through the Look Inside feature over at Amazon, I ordered a copy for our family (and one for Grandpa so he can compete with the kids from afar!!). 🙂  It looks really fun!! There are really nice photos, a brief description, an an explanation of the number of points you’ll earn if you spot that type of cloud. Here’s one of the sample pages.

If you are doing a weather unit, be sure to check out our free Weather Packet and see if that might be of interest as well. It includes a lot of fun experiments that we did about air, water, temperature and more!  🙂

You might also be interested in our 50+ page Water Cycle Unit. It has a number of activities for learning all about the water cycle.

Water Cycle Unit - Worksheets Notebook Pages and Activities

Water Cycle Booklet: My daughter started this unit coloring and working on this Water Cycle booklet. It covers basic information about the water cycle and covers the major terms such as evaporation, transpiration, sublimation, condensation and so forth.  Water Cycle Booklet

Water Cycle Notebook Pages:We then went over a water cycle notebook page. We read that together and the kids filled in the missing words. Another day we went over the vocabulary worksheets to make sure the kids knew not only the common words like evaporation, condensation and precipitation, but also the trickier words like sublimation, transpiration and knew the difference between infiltration and percolation. We also went over watersheds and divides.

Biology Packet – The Biosphere

We talked a lot about the abiotic factors that make up an ecosystem (anything that is not living — climate, soil, weather, etc.), as well as touching on dominant plants and animals.  We spent time on feeding relationships and biological interactions. So, we went over the basic terms like herbivores, carnivores, omnivores, detritivores. And, we also talked a lot about the more complex biological interactions — from mutualism,when two species interact and both get something positive out of the interaction, to various forms of amensalism – when one organism benefits and the other is harmed and/or destroyed like parasitism, competition and antibiosis. We talked about the food chain and food webs as well as the difference between habitats, ecosystems, and biomes.

After our Biology/Biosphere Unit, we went on to study the hydrosphere — ie. the ocean. Find out more about our ocean unit here:
