Storyboard Text

  • Hi. I'm Jason. I am here to talk to you about weathering, erosion, and deposition.
  • Follow along in the comic to see what the processes are about.
  • Weathering breaks down rocks into sediment and brings it to the riverbank.
  • This is when the process of erosion comes.
  • The water of the river comes down, and takes the sediment with it.
  • I am starting my story at a dramatic beginning
  • When the sediment falls with the other sediment, they all pile on top of each other.
  • Once the sediment and water reach the waterfall, the sediment falls with more of it.
  • By then, it makes a shape of land, called a landform.
  • As you can see here, there are rocks nearby, and the process of weathering can break it all down, and bring it to the side of the river.
  • The more the sediment piling on to each other, the larger the landform, like the space I have in my backyard.
  • The sediment piles on to each other, with more sediment the water picked up. 
  • The water is rushing down the river, and the sediment goes with it.
  • Bye-bye. I'm out.
  • I think I'll stick to staying here and play outside.
  • The sediment reaches the waterfall, along with more sediment the water had picked up also on the journey, and piles on top of each other, creating landforms
  • This part of the process is called deposition.
  • The sediment piles and piles, and piles on top of each other, 'till there is enough space for a couple of people to fit on the space.
  • I made a happy ending with me in my backyard:)
