    You can now watch and listen to Wally and Deanna's water cycle adventure online! Follow Wally the Worm and Deanna Waterdroplet as they travel to the saturated zone and further.

    Wally and Deanna use accurate terminology to describe their journey and explain how water droplets, like Deanna, travel from the sky to the ground, to an aquifer, to rivers and back up to the sky. This book and our new video are the perfect introduction for young children to the water cycle!

I am a second year student in the Physics and Astronomy program. I love learning about other planets as well as going outside at night and gazing up at the stars. I look forward to sharing my love of nature by helping build the Earth Sciences Museum website this term.
