My Great niece’s project this term was to create a narrative about the water cycle.
This is it.
THE ADVENTURES OF PLOP and DROP
One cloudy, Saturday morning there was a cloud with thousands of raindrops. Then the cloud became very big and full. Every single raindrop fell out of the cloud they lived in. Then they fell down into a big, long river. Luckily two of the raindrops found their mum and said,
"Can you think of names for us? PLEASE!" Their mum said, "How about, you can be Drop, and you can be Plop?"
Drop and Plop started to flow down the river, going faster and faster and faster! "I wonder where we are going next?" Plop said to Drop. "I think I know where we are going, "said Drop. "Where's that?" asked Plop. "Through some sort of strange pipe, "replied Drop" Maybe we are going through a tap, "said Plop. Yes, they were.
The next thing Drop and Plop did was to come out of the tap and into a small, pink cup. Plop thought she was in a huge waterfall. Drop didn't, because he realized that they were being poured out of the cup and into a girl's mouth. Then they went into her stomach. Then the girl sat down.
Drop and Plop did not know what they were doing inside someone that was sitting down. Plop then realized they were coming out of the girl's body and into something else. Now Drop and Plop were complaining because they had both turned yellow. "How did that happen?" they asked each other.
Drop and Plop didn't know how it happened but they were quickly flushed down into the sewage pipe. That was when there were lots of other yellow raindrops. After they went through lots of different pipes they became clean. Next they were washed down another river. Drop and Plop went down one more pipe that lead to the ocean.
"YIPPEEEEEEE!" Plop said, "We're not yellow anymore. "Then they rose UP UP UP high into the air. They were going back up into the clouds in the sky.
Drop and Plop were so glad they were back home. "I'm so, so glad we are home," said Plop. "ME TOO!" said Drop. The next thing they did was look for their mum. They did find her again and so they were even more glad. Drop and Plop then wondered what their next adventure would be like.
