THE LIFE OF A WATER DROPLET
This storyboard does not have a description.
I start on the ground, where the plants and soil around me absorb me because of a process named transpiration. Similar to evaporation, this process turns the water into water vapor, but by plants instead of heat.
The sun in out. Looks like I'm going to be evaporating, or absorb heat energy from the sun and turn into water vapor to start the process of the water cycle.
Since I am now high up in the atmosphere, where it is cold, my heat will turn into tiny ice/water droplets, which are formed through the process of condensation. Those droplets stick together to form clouds.
The clouds were getting so heavy with all the water being stored in them that they ended up precipitating. This process lets all the water out of the clouds through rain, snow, sleet, or hail.
Now, in a stream, I am flowing off of the hill I landed on and this process is called runoff.
Under all this water is where I stay. Groundwater lies beneath the earth's surface, collecting in underground aquifers. Soon the water cycle will restart.
