Storyboard Description

Stevie the water drop is going to take you on a trip through the water cycle! You can learn about evaporation, condensation, precipitation, and much more!

Storyboard Text

  • Hi! My name is Stevie and I live here in this lovely body of water! I go through the water cycle pretty often, and today I'm going to walk you through it so so you can earn your prized Water Cycle Badges.
  • The first step of the water cycle is evaporation! Evaporation is when water changes from a liquid to a gas because of energy transfers. In our case thermal energy causes me and my buds to turn into water vapor.
  • Thermal energy from the sun excites the molecules in the water and they move faster and faster until they become a gas, water vapor!
  • Once we're up high in the atmosphere, we cool down(lose thermal energy)and collect onto particles in the air like dust and dirt. 
  • When we condense like this and become water droplets again, my friends and I form clouds!
  • Our water molecules actually slow down when we cool get a bit closer, turning us into a liquid.
  • WEEEEE!!!
  • This part is the most fun. When the clouds get heavy and full of water, they release all the water in the form of rain, hail, sleet, etc.
  • This is how water comes back down to the ground!
  • Peyton is getting soaked into the ground and feeding the trees! This is called transpiration and she can be evaporated through pores in the plants as well!
  • Some of us fall back into bodies of water like me. This is called sublimation.
  • Britney here is part of run-off. She runs off this drop. Her and her run-off buddies can cause erosion!
  • Oh boy! It has been a lot of fun teaching you about the water cycle. I hope you enjoyed learning. Here's your new Water Scout Badge!
