5 Finding a fossil is fun, and so is making one. Read the directions on how to do it and then answer the questions that follow. Activity: Make Your Own Fossil Finding a real fossil is terrific! Fossils are rocks that contain the imprint of bones, shells, or leaves that existed thousands—maybe even millions—of years ago. You may not find a real fossil very often—or ever. But you can make your own fossil. Here are directions for making your own fossil. You will need: · 1 small bag of plaster of Paris (ask at a hardware store) · Water · 1 empty coffee can · 1 old aluminum pie or cake pan · Something to stir with (like a paint-stirring stick) · Some small objects to press into your fossil (shells, leaves, stones, buttons, bottle caps, even your hand will do) · A piece of picture-hanging wire (if you want to hang your fossil on the wall) · A cup

6 How to do it: 1. Spread newspapers on the floor or table where you are going to work. (This can get messy!) 2. Collect your "fossil objects." 3. Pour a cup of plaster of Paris into the coffee can. 4. Stir in enough water until it looks like thick pancake batter, following the directions on the box. 5. Pour the plaster of Paris mixture into the aluminum pan. 6. Place your fossil objects on the plaster and press down firmly. 7. If you want to hang your fossil on the wall when it's dry, twist a piece of wire into a loop and stick it into the top of the mold. 8. Wait 5 minutes, then carefully remove the objects. 9. Let the plaster dry, remove it from the pan, and YOU HAVE MADE A FOSSIL!! If you can't get plaster of Paris, you can also make a fossil with clay.

7 Which would NOT be good to use to make a fossil? a. a chicken feather b. dead leaf c. a piece of paper d. fish bonesa chicken featherdead leafa piece of paperfish bones Support your answer with evidence from the text. Click here to reread part 1.here Click here to reread part 2. here

20 Garden Planned for Wilson School The Wilson School Outdoor Committee has announced plans for a school garden. The garden will be located at the southwest corner of the schoolyard, and planting will begin in March. The committee has sent out flyers requesting ideas for planning the different areas of the garden. "Each classroom will be in charge of planting one area of the garden," says Tina Castillo, the committee's leader. "There will also be large areas that will be shared by the entire school community. We need to hear people's ideas for how those areas should be constructed. We would like to hear from parents, teachers, and students." Ms. Castillo went on to say that the garden will be used for many purposes once completed. "Students may grow fruits and vegetables that they can eat. They might plant flowers that will bring butterflies. Others may use the garden to study the life cycle of plants. We think this will be a great learning experience for all of our students." She also stated that a special box has been placed outside the school office. Comments about the garden may be placed in the box, and students can also put suggestions for changes to the garden in the box. The committee is also asking for volunteers to help with building and planting once the garden has been designed. A calendar for these events will be posted throughout the school and in this newspaper. To find out more, please contact Ms Castillo.

21 According to the passage, where is the suggestion box? a. inside the schoolyard b. next to each classroom c. near the butterfly garden d. outside the school officeinside the schoolyardnext to each classroomnear the butterfly gardenoutside the school office Click here to reread the passage. here

28 Elephant seals are very large seals. The males have long noses that hang down, a little like elephant trunks. Read about a young elephant seal, and then answer the questions that follow. Basil, the Elephant Seal (Part 1) Scientists study the seals on Elephant Seal Island. To make their job easier, they give each seal a name. They mark each with its name. One day a baby seal, or pup, was born to a seal named Rita. The scientists named the pup Basil. Basil was already big when he was born. He weighed about fifty pounds. He snuggled against his mother. He began to nurse, hungrily sucking his mother's milk. Every day, Basil gained ten pounds. When he was three weeks old, he weighed 250 pounds. When he was four weeks old, he weighed almost 350 pounds!

29 Basil, the Elephant Seal (Part 2) Rita was getting thinner. She could not go into the ocean to catch squid and fish to eat. She had to stay and feed Basil. One morning when Basil was still asleep, Rita went down to the ocean. She swam away from the island. Other mother elephant seals were leaving, too. Soon, only the pups occupied the island. The pups, called weaners because they no longer nursed from their mothers, were alone. They had nothing to eat. Basil was only one month old. Every morning, the weaners went down to the ocean. Basil went with them. As the days passed, some of the weaners became bold. Bravely, they went into the water. Basil grew bold, too, and stuck his head in the water. He went deeper into the water and began to float. All around Basil, other weaners were going into the water. They were floating, swimming, and diving! All by themselves they were learning how to move through the water. When Basil was two months old, he swam slowly away from the island. The weaners were leaving to find fish to fill their empty bellies. One by one, they swam away.
