Reading for Understanding Main Idea Details Genre Author's purpose Subject or characters What is the author saying
about the subject or characters? (main idea sentence) Sequence Graphic sources Compare and contrast Fact and opinion Theme
(main idea in a narrative) Generalizations Cause and effect "Hooking" the reader In the frozen sea, a long blue crack opens on the ice. The crack widens and the ice shakes and groans until finally it breaks loose and floats away. A new iceberg has been born. Video games are very popular today but have been around for some time. The first game, invented in 1952, was a computer version of tic-tac-toe. Later a tennis game and a space war game were created. Today, many people have or want a handheld computer designed to play games. Did you read Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar as a young child? If so, you’re one of millions of children who enjoyed seeing the caterpillar munch through the book’s pages. Ann Bancroft and Liv Arnesen grew up thousands of miles apart, yet they shared a childhood dream. They each wanted to cross the frozen continent of Antarctica. As adults they accomplished a number of feats. Bancroft
climbed Mount McKinley, the highest peak in North America. She was the first woman to ski overland across Greenland, she traveled to the North Pole by dogsled, and she led a team of women to the South Pole. Arnesen attempted to climb Mount Everest, the highest mountain on Earth. She was the first woman to ski to the South Pole alone and with no outside support. Bent over the cooking fire, the young woman wiped the sweat from her forehead as she continued stirring the pot. The girl was dressed in rags and was barefoot. Her hair was cut short and unevenly, and her face looked like it had not been washed for days. Octavia knew she wanted to be a doctor when she grew up, and she decided to make a robot that would be able to help people
who weren’t feeling well. Working for several months, she programmed a robot that would check for fever by taking a person’s temperature. Her invention, which she named Doctor R, could also monitor a heartbeat and pass out adhesive bandages to people who needed them. Ann Bancroft and Liv Arnesen began working together in 1992 to cross Antarctica on foot. Because they were traveling to such a difficult and faraway place, they had to be tough and independent. They learned how to sew up wounds and what to do in the event of a life-threatening injury. Bancroft spent some time in an ice cream freezer, where she tested her gear and tried to adapt to icy temperatures. They knew they would face winds up to one hundred miles per hour, and indeed, they intended to use these winds to progress. The women would use wind-sails when the conditions were right to help propel them toward their goal. In Japan, a scientist studied the levels of brain activity while study subjects were playing video games. He found that over a period of thirty minutes, less brain power was used for video games than for adding single numbers. He found that during computer games, the front part of the brain was not active. The front part of the brain is linked to controlling behavior. He claimed that playing computer games for too many hours would prevent young people from developing the part of the brain that controls behavior.
A U.S. scientist studied brain waves and found that video games improved the attention span of study subjects. The studied groups who played video games showed improvement in controlling their behavior and improvement in concentrating. NASA plans to use video type games to help train pilots and astronauts to keep calm and pay attention. Austin and Kyle had just arrived in Darwin on Australia’s northern coast. They were excited about visiting Kakadu National Park, but the flight from the United States had taken twenty hours, and they were tired.
Austin’s stomach emitted a loud growl. He suggested finding something to eat. Near
the harbor, Austin noticed a small shop that
had a sign for pies.
“What kind of pie do you have?” asked Austin. Such an iceberg appeared in the Ross Sea by Antartica in May 2002. An iceberg calved, or broke away from, the western face of the Ross Ice Shelf. The name of the iceberg was C-19. Although the calving or icebergs happens often without harming the environment, the calving of this iceberg had a different result.

While you were reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar, you were also learning. You were learning how to count as the caterpillar ate through one apple, then two pears, and so on. Even more, you were learning the days of the week, because the caterpillar ate something different each day. As the book concluded, you learned that a caterpillar spins a cocoon for itself and is next seen as a butterfly—and that is an important science lesson.
Another book that might have helped you to count is Lois Ehlert’s book entitled Fish Eyes: A Book You Can Count On. In this book, readers travel through the sea with the little black fish and meet up with one green fish, two jumping fish, three smiling fish, right up to ten. However, the little black fish adds himself to each group this way, “Three smiling fish plus me makes 4.” So in this counting book young readers also begin to learn about addition.

The clerk said, “Let’s see, we have potato and sausage, or steak and onion.” Austin blinked. Kyle gulped.
“Do you have blueberry?” asked Austin. The man laughed. “Sorry mate, all we sell here are meat pies.”
Kyle ordered one of each as Austin looked at him questioningly. Kyle told him they might as well try them.
As they devoured their food, which was tasty, they walked beside the harbor. They saw a sign with a diagram of a swimmer with a line through it, indicating that swimming was not allowed in the bay. They remembered that this area was home to the box jellyfish, or stinger. While many of the creatures are only the size of a grapefruit, their sting has been known to cause death.
Suddenly, they heard an eerie wail. Then there were barking and chirping sounds, followed by a long buzzing drone. Austin and Kyle hurried toward the noise. They came to a shop with its door open. A man was standing inside, blowing into a long wooden tube. This was the source of the strange and wonderful sounds. When C-19 fell into the Ross Sea, it covered up an important food source for all the local marine life. Phytoplankton (FY toh PLANK tun), tiny free-floating plants that live in the water, depend on sunbeams in order to grow. It was impossible for sunbeams to reach the phytoplankton in the water underneath with C-19 floating in the water above them. With the iceberg blocking the sunlight, the growth of new plant matter decreased by more than 90 percent.
Phytoplankton are at the bottom of the food chain, and every animal above them depends on them for life. If there are no phytoplankton, marine animals that eat them will have no food, and those animals, and the animals higher up in the food chain are in great danger.

During the science fair, Octavia and Andy brought their projects to the school gym and demonstrated them for the teachers and other students. Although Octavia and Andy had worked separately, their robots looked almost the same. Both Doctor R and Rocky were small round machines made from old globes. Both robots moved on four spiky legs that were fashioned from metal pieces; both had two arms adapted from forks and other moveable pieces; and each robot had a single flashing light.
“Looks like we were thinking along the same lines,” Andy joked to Octavia.
“Visually, at least,” she said, laughing.
Andy’s robot, Rocky, was performing the song “Country Roads” when suddenly it fell off the small stage Andy had made. After seeing Rocky fall, Octavia used her remote control to send Doctor R speeding over to offer a bandage. “Take me home,” sang Rocky. (It was a line from the song.) Everyone laughed and applauded. Doctor R bowed and rolled back to Octavia. Rocky finished his song and bowed to the audience. The judges gave Octavia and Andy first prize to share. They congratulated both students on making functional robots that had amazed and amused everyone at the science fair. less brain power the front part of their brain was not active prevented young people from developing their brain improved the attention span improvement in controlling behavior improvement in concentrating help train pilots and astronauts When C-19 fell into the Ross Sea, it covered up an important food source for all the local marine life.
