a day in the life of dana the raindrop

Hello, I am Dana, Dana the Raindrop. I was born high up in the sky a few rain-years ago. I live in a comfortable cloud, which I have named Cecil, with plenty of other friendly drops. Cecil and I have travelled from far, high up in the sky. We are now looking over the countryside in search of a nice place to visit. That farm down there seems like a good place to drop in. Cecil says he is in no hurry. So we wait and glide a little more in the sky. Cecil has picked a good spot. A city filled with people, cats and gardens with laundry out to dry. Cecil coughs. That’s our sign! Down we drop, weeeeeee!…

let's eat…corn!

Corn grows on a tall plant, which carries 1 or 2 cobs. Corn is made of little yellow seeds known as kernels. All the kernels live packed on the cob, which is the flower of the plant. Corn is eaten in many different ways: steamed or grilled on and off the cob, ground to make flour, heated to make popcorn and baked to make cereal. Corn comes from Mexico, where it has been grown and eaten for tens of thousands of years. The green leaves that go around the cob are called husks. Popcorn was eaten over 5,000 years ago in South America. The only bits that are tasty to eat are the kernels. Corn is used to make glue, chewing gum, toothpaste, medicine, paper, batteries and even crayons! Corn also comes in blue, purple, orange and white.…
