I, Ms. Drops started in a river as fresh water and surface water. I was with all of my water droplet friends; we were just hanging out.
We sat there talking and then all of a sudden the sun's heat had evaporated me. I didn't want to leave, but I couldn't do anything about it. I had become became water vapor.
I was so scared. All my life I was just Ms. Drops; a water droplet in the Missouri River. Now I was condensing into dust particles and then forming a cloud.
What? Another change! All of us raindrops and now particles, were coming together and forming one big raindrop. At least I wasn't alone.
Gravity pulled us down to the ground as precipitation. Some of my new raindrop friends were seeping into the ground and becoming part of an aquifer which contains groundwater. At least that was what the older water droplets told me back in the river.
Then, there were raindrops like me who also came down as precipitation, but I fell on to the sidewalk and sat there. An animal came up and started to drink the me. Uh-oh!
