Journey of a Grain of Sand Im Samantha Sandstone, but I was Molly Marble. This is the story of the stages I went through to become sandstone. (believe me it took a while).
Part 1:It all started on a stormy day. I was sitting on another rock minding my own buissness when the rain made me slip into a river.
Part 2:Grinding against the river I got broken up into littlebits until I was only a centimeter wide! I tried to grabhold of the rivers ledge, but it was as slippery as abar of soap and I had to let go. I kept going down thesnaky river. Then I noticed I was a tiny grain of sand! Iwas sitting feeling sorry for myself when the riverdropped me into a delta.
Part 3:I got whirled around like cotton candy getting twirled onto its stick. I got whooshed through meanders. Some times it was a smooth ride until I would hit a bumpy fragment where the river had dropped rocks that were to heavy.
Part 4:I was beginning to enjoy this ride when all of the sudden the delta deposited me into the ocean.
Part 5:I plopped into the oceans deep water until the forceful waves pushed me to shore. I got blown under a boulder with other sand for hundreds of years.
Part 6:When I came out I was sandstone! I was renamed Samantha. That was the end of my journey of changing from marble to sandstone!
