I predict that the water will sort of soak up into the gravel but at the same time it will stay at the top of the mound.
I predict that the water will soak up into the outside of the wood and make it a darker brown color.
I predict that the water will not go through the metal but it will make the metal wet and slippery. It will also slide down it onto the bottom.
I predict that the water will not go through the rock and that the rock will stay somewhat rough.
I predict that the water will hit the grass and soak into it.
I was right. The gravel soaked up some of the water because it only stayed on the top, but it still soaked in a little bit of the way.
I was right. The water soaked right up onto the outside layer of the wood but then it never went any farther into the wood.
I was right. The water didn't go through the metal but it slide down and made it slippery.
I was wrong. The part that I got right was that the water won't go through the rock but the rock didn't stay rough. It got very slippery.
I was wrong. The grass appears to have a thick layer of something around it that doesn't let any water through.
I wasn't very surprised that the gravel didn't soak up all of the water because the gravel is almost the same as sand, and the same thing happens with sand.
I was sort of surprised that the water didn't soak up into the whole block of wood even though that my prediction was right.
I wasn't really that surprised that the water didn't go through the metal because the metal is very solid and strong, and a little bit of water is very weak.
I was really surprised that the rock didn't stay rough. I thought that it would, but I knew that the water wouldn't go through the rock or soak into it.
This surprised me. I thought that grass was just a very little weak green strip, and now that I look closer, I noticed that the water didn't go through the grass.
The first thing that happens to water when you think about it is when it rains. This is when the water falls from the clouds and drips down to Earth. That is the first part that happens to water. Now, that next thing you may think is, well, "doesn't the water just disappear?" Well, that doesn't ever happen! The next thing that happens in a water cycle is to drip down to a place where the water just stops moving along. Such as when the water drips onto a mountain, the water collects together and forms a stream, then a river, then a flood. And then the water runs down that mountain and soon finds a hole, a lake, or even an ocean. But it doesn't stop there! Soon, with heat, the water in the lake/ocean/hole, evaporates, which means that it sort of turns into a gas, just like steam. The difference is that the steam you can see, but the water after it evaporates, is invisible. And it doesn't stop there either! Soon after the water becomes water vapor (evaporated water), it starts to fly. As it flies, it soon reaches the clouds where the water vapor becomes water again and goes into the cloud! Soon, the whole water cycle starts over again, starting when it rains!
