Most people think of the Sahara Desert as having three parts: the rocky western part, the mountains in the middle, and the eastern part, which is the driest. The eastern area is what many people think of when they think of desert. Great hills of sand rise hundreds of feet in the air. These rolling dunes stretch as far as the eye can see.
There are few cities in the middle of the Sahara, but several cities lie around the edges of this great desert. A map? The Liberty Bell is a symbol of freedom. The bell is about three feet tall. Carved on it are the words “Proclaim Liberty throughout all the land.” It rang to call people together the first time the Declaration of Independence was read. For many years after that, the bell rang every Fourth of July. But soon a crack began to develop. How about just a picture? Science was Caitlin’s favorite subject, so naturally she was excited about
the Science Fair. For her project, Caitlin wanted to find out if noise and other
distractions made it harder to do homework.
To find out, she read from her social studies book while other things were
going on around her. She read in the same room where her brother was watching
a television program. She read while listening to her favorite music group. She
read in a quiet room. Then she read in a room crowded with family members
talking to one another. She also read on the school bus on her way to school.
She read from the same book each time, but she didn’t read the same pages
she had read before. She read for the same length of time in each situation. Then
she recorded the number of pages she was able to read. That's a lot of information! We need a chart to organize it. The octopus has two large eyes. It can see very well. This helps it hunt for food and look out for its enemies. It has a soft body with a head, a trunk, and a “skirt.” Eight arms are connected to the skirt. There are two rows of suckers on each arm. In the center of the skirt is a mouth like a beak.
The octopus can move in two different ways. It can use its long arms to pull itself along, or it can use its siphon. The siphon is a sort of tube. The octopus pushes water out of the tube, and as the water shoots out one way, the octopus shoots off in the other. Many parts are mentioned, so a diagram would be good. The word yo-yo comes from a country known as the Philippines. It means “come come.” Children there have been playing with this type of toy for hundreds of years, although they were not the first. Greek children have had yo-yos for thousands of years. It is one of the world’s oldest toys. A map might be helpful. The following may have come from the diary of a young member of a pioneer family in 1865.
May 1. We left Independence a month ago. Today we crossed the Platte River after the men spent several days building rafts to float the people and wagons across.
June 20. We arrived in Fort Laramie after many weeks of slow travel through the Great Plains. Because of blinding dust storms followed by terrible thunderstorms, we only went a few miles a day.
August 25. We finally reached Fort Hall and everyone is exhausted. Crossing the mountains was a struggle. We borrowed one another’s oxen to pull the wagons up the steep trail.
October 1. Since leaving Fort Hall, we have followed the beautiful Columbia River all the way to Oregon City. It’s been six months of unbelievable adventure. Many places are mentioned, so a map would be helpful. Rosa loves books about horses. She borrowed "A Horse Named Storm" on August 30 and returned it September 9. On September 9 she borrowed a new book called "Maggie's Wild Horse." She returned the book on September 28. The book she has out right now is called "Horse Families." A timeline? A chart? Great job!
