The Smallest Raindrop

After watching The Smallest Raindrop, explain what happened to the smallest raindrop at the beginning, middle and  end of the story. Use the diagram at the top of the page as an example to draw your own water cycle and show the path of the smallest raindrop. Create a raindrop character by drawing a picture of your raindrop.
