Why? Because…

Slide 2

If you ask “Why?” I answer, “Because.” Let me show you.

Slide 3

Why does rain fall from clouds?

Slide 4

Because tiny little drops of water (droplets) crash together inside clouds,

Slide 5

then the raindrops fall!

Slide 8

We ask “Why?” when we are confused. We do not understand something that happens. But we want to understand!

Slide 9

Why do we catch colds and get sick?

Slide 10

Because tiny germs,

Slide 11

usually a rhinovirus,

Slide 12

get into our bodies, when we breathe,

Slide 28

and there is just a little calcium carbonate in that water,

Slide 29

which builds up when the water drips!

Slide 30

Check it out! A stalactite drips (25 seconds, very simple video, not good quality)
