My life as a water molecule part 1
This storyboard does not have a description.
First, I started in the soil surface as a liquid, on a small hill in a luscious forest. It was a nice place, but the next day it was 90°F (thanks to the sun) and I warmed up enough to rise to the top of the small hill because warm water rises.
Hey I'm back to a liquide state!
Once at the top, gravity took hold of me and I rolled slowly down the hill and plopped into the neighboring stream. Once in the stream I cooled and condensed, staying a liquid, sinking to the lower parts of the stream because cold water sinks. I flowed in that stream for about two weeks, but as the days got warmer, I slowly rose to the surface of the stream.
Then it finally got warm enough for me to evaporate from this lovely stream and turn into a gas (water vapor) because of energy from the sun. As a gas, I became part of a cloud along with other water molecules in the form of gas, liquid and solid. While hanging around in that cloud, I met a bunch of other friendly molecules!
Wow we're part of a iceberg now!
We traveled towards the Atlantic Ocean, the area that was very close to the Antarctic, it became cooler because the sun couldn’t reach us as quickly. The cloud I was part of became made of mostly liquid state molecules, including me. We arrived above the Atlantic Ocean , most of the molecules cooled and condensed once more, then we proceeded to rain (precipitate) into the ocean.
Once in the Atlantic Ocean, my buddies and I got swept into the East Wind Drift, a cool current coming from the east. In that ocean current, it got really cold and most of my buddies and I froze, and became ice. Because water expands when it freezes, most of us were floating on the surface of the water. Eventually, we came upon an iceberg and stuck to it.
On that iceberg, nobody realized it but there was a polar bear catching a ride as well. Apparently, it was thirsty, so it bent down unnervingly close to us and began drinking, but as it was taking its last drink it’s tongue brushed the iceberg and I was lapped up into its enormous jaw.
