I think it will just get absorbed into the larger body of water with a few ripples.
I think it will just slide off right away.
I think the drops will gradually melt the cube.
I think the water will instantly slide off, because rocks are round.
I think it will leave a trail like the rock did.
I think it will stay on the surface of the dirt.
I think the water will go through after a while.
I think the water will go through immediately, because there are lots of holes in my shirt
I think the water will stay on the surface for a while, then sink into the soil beneath the grass.
There were little circular ripples all around the place where the drop fell.
The drop stayed on the surface of the umbrella until we tipped it, then it slid off onto the floor.
I was right! First time today.
I was 1/2 right. The drop itself slid off right away, but it left a trail of wet behind, on the rock.
When you do it on the bark, the drop runs down in a trickle, and you can't tell it was there except for the spots where the water gets caught.
Wrong again. Actually, the drop becomes invisible after about 5 seconds on the surface. Then, the dirt in the place it fell becomes clumpier.
I was right! Hooray!
(I used my friend's jeans because I wasn't wearing any)
The water drop stayed in its perfect, spherical form for the longest time. When I looked in it, I saw my shirt magnified in just that miniscule bubble. And then the water got through and I could feel the spot on my arm where it was. There was a darker patch where it had been.
I didn't know such a small drop of water could pull so much water with it on the way up from the bounce.
I thought the drop would fall off right away, but it turns out the drop just stays there until tipped enough to fall off.
I was actually right, first try! That's really interesting about the melting.
It's strange how there is this trail behind the water, like a snail or something.
It's strange how invisible the water ends up, except for the places where it gets caught on a piece of bark.
I never knew how the dirt changed textures, but now I do! Water makes it different!
This is only the second time I've been right. Maybe I should start making better guesses.
I thought it was so cool with the magnifying thing! Who would have guessed that such a tiny little drop could have magnified anything so big?
Isn't it interesting
