Storyboard Text

  • These rocks are blocking our way!
  • We are witnessing WEATHERING and Erosion!
  • What is happening to us!  We are now being deposited! I want my MOMMY!
  • There was a time when there was a big mountain that was very well known. They called it the Big Boy. Although the town of Albany (get it?) couldn't climb the mountain because of the big rocks, they still loved the view.
  • They're getting smaller! Will we be able to actually climb the mountain! 
  • At the time, rain and wind were two main weathering problems.  People knew about weathering at the time. This is what it looked like. Water gets inside the rock and does a process where the rock freezes and then melts.  The process causes the rock to slowly break apart.  The wind has a similar process but only slower. The breaking apart is called erosion.
  • !?
  •  People started noticing the change in the rocks. As the rock eroded, some of the sediments were deposited somewhere else. This process is called deposition. The town might be excited because of this.
  • I'm on top of the world!
  • Something was up. The town would come back to the mountain every day. However, they noticed a change in the rocks. There were more of them, but they were getting smaller! They all knew that something was up.
  • 3 months later. The whole town came to see the changes in the rock. The kid with the 8 on his jersey told everyone about the process of Weathering, Erosion, and Deposition. However, something happened 1 month later. There was an opening! The rocks looked like pebbles. There were hundreds, maybe thousands of pebbles!
  • The town finally got to explore and play on the mountain. The tiny rocks made an easy passage to the mountain. The town and families always went back to the mountain. And they all lived happily ever after. The End - Earth processes are Lit!
