Galileo

 

Galileo Galilei was born in Pisa, Italy, in 1564. His father taught music while his mother cared for Galileo and his three siblings. The family was not wealthy, but Galileo’s parents paid for him to go to school.

At first Galileo planned to become a doctor, but he changed his mind. He liked a different kind of science—the kind we now call physics. In Galileo’s time, not much was known about how objects moved. Centuries earlier, a Greek named Aristotle had written down his ideas about motion, and everyone seemed to believe them. Galileo questioned those ideas and did experiments that showed how things really worked.

For example, Aristotle thought that a heavier object would fall faster than a lighter one of the same size and shape. No one had ever really tested this idea. It just seemed to make sense. Then Galileo came along, dropped two balls from a high tower, and discovered that they hit the ground at the same time!

Here’s another example. When Galileo was only 17 years old, he saw a lamp hanging from a chain in a cathedral. A breeze caused the lamp to swing back and forth. Galileo timed the swings, using his pulse as a watch. He discovered that every swing of the lamp took the same amount of time, no matter how big or small the swing. This discovery later led to the use of pendulums in clocks.

In later years, Galileo became interested in how the stars and planets move. He watched the night sky with a telescope he built himself. Once again, he saw things no one had ever seen before. For example, he saw that the moon was bumpy, not smooth. Then he noticed that the sun had spots that seemed to move. Galileo realized from his observations that the Earth was moving around the sun. A Polish scientist named Copernicus had said this recently, but no one believed him. Galileo knew that Copernicus was right.

Unfortunately, Galileo’s statements got him into trouble with the Catholic Church. The Church said that Earth was at the center of the universe with the sun traveling around it. This was what people had long believed, but Galileo said it was untrue and was sent to jail. He was soon released, but for the rest of his life he had to stay in his house and yard.

Galileo died in 1642, but his work helped to change the world. He is sometimes called the “father of modern science” because he showed us how important it is to look carefully at things and to test out ideas with experiments.

While he stayed home in his later years, what did Galileo most likely do?

Marly and the Kite

 

Marly’s class was studying China. One day her teacher, Miss Singh, told the students that kites were invented in China more than 2,000 years ago. “To this day,” she said, “most Chinese people have a passion for kites. On sunny, windy days, people of all ages go to the park to fly them.”

Miss Singh explained that Chinese kites are always colorful and are often beautifully decorated to look like dragons, butterflies, or other creatures. Then she announced an unusual homework assignment. She asked each student to make a kite and bring it to class. “The Chinese make kites that represent some- thing important to them,” she said. “Each of you should make a kite that signifies something important to you.”

Marly did not like the assignment. “I don’t know how to make a kite,” she grumbled as she walked home. Then she decided to ask her dad for help. Marly explained to Papa that the kite had to mean something to her.

“What do you think of when you see a kite?” Papa asked.

As Marly thought for a moment, her mind filled with images of things that flew, such as planes and birds. “Eagles,” she said.

Papa nodded and agreed that an eagle design would make an excellent kite. “They are proud and fierce,” he said.

Marly and Papa got two rods of balsa wood and bound them into the shape of a cross. Papa cut a square out of an old white bed sheet, and Marly painted a great golden eagle on the sheet. Then they stretched the sheet over the rods and made a diamond-shaped kite. Finally, Marly tied a long tail to the bottom of the kite, and it was finished.

Next, Marly and Papa took the kite to the park and tested it. The kite flew perfectly. Marly jerked the string and made the kite swoop so that the eagle dived to the earth and flew back up again.

“Wow,” Marly cried, “This kite really flies!”
“Yes, it does,” Papa said proudly. “I think your teacher will like your kite.”

Which is the best summary of this story?

The King of Beasts

 

Long ago, in the days before lions were known in Europe, the bear was considered “the king of beasts.” Many knights put pictures of bears on their shields. They hoped the bears would make them look big and strong to the enemy.

Today, people still admire bears for their size and strength. In North America, the two most common species of bears are the black bear and the brown bear. Some brown bears are called by other names, such as the Kodiak bear and the grizzly bear. Both black bears and brown bears vary in color from light brown to dark brown to black.

These two species have much in common, but there are differences between them. Black bears are smaller than brown bears, for example. They are also more likely to climb trees. The brown bear has a shoulder hump and a curved snout. The snout of a black bear is straighter.

Bears belong to the same family of animals as dogs and foxes. They are also like people in one interesting way. They walk flat-footed, as people do. Most other mammals walk on their toes.

When the weather gets cold, bears curl up in a cave or other cozy spot and sleep for the winter. Baby bears are born in early spring.

Bears eat both plants and meat, including nuts, berries, roots, fish, squirrels, and other small animals. Bears also like honey. Lucky for them, their thick coats protect them from bee stings.

Bears live alone, except for mothers taking care of their cubs. They do not form groups. For the most part, bears are peaceful. They would rather walk away than fight. However, a bear will attack if scared or angry. For this reason, it‘s best for people to stay at a safe distance from “the king of beasts.”

In what ways are bears different than most mammals?

The Gift

It just hadn’t been a very good week. On Tuesday, Sam’s father lost his job. Then on Wednesday, Sam’s mother announced that the rent on their apartment was going up. Now it was Friday, and Sam had just opened his e-mail to find an invitation from Rosa to her birthday party.

Ordinarily, an invitation to a party at Rosa’s would have been good news. Sam knew Rosa from Adventure Club. Members of the club took trips to places such as the Museum of Natural History.

Sam knew that he would enjoy Rosa’s party, but he didn’t want to go without a gift. What could he possibly buy her with the little bit of money he had left in his pocket? Sam knew he couldn’t ask Mom or Dad for any money—not this week! “Well,” Sam thought, “I don’t have time to worry about this right now. I’ve got a report to write for school, and I’d better get to the library before it closes.”

Later that afternoon, as Sam was leaving the library, he noticed a sign that said there was a book sale going on downstairs. Sam headed down for a quick look, and two books caught his eye. The first was a cookbook of Puerto Rican foods, and the second was a book about women explorers. “Rosa would like these,” Sam thought, “but would it be tacky to give her used books for her birthday?”

Sam decided that a used gift was better than no gift at all. Besides, Rosa sup- ported recycling in a big way, so she would probably approve. With his last dollar, Sam bought the books and went home feeling a little better.

The party on Saturday was a lot of fun. Everyone told stories about the funny things they had done in Adventure Club—like the time they went hiking in a nearby park and fell into the lake. Rosa’s mother and grandmother served them delicious food and creamy coconut milkshakes. Rosa opened all her gifts and thanked everyone for the nice things they had given her. She paused when she opened Sam’s gift, which made him wonder if she liked the books, but nothing was said. The moment passed, and soon the party was over.

When Sam got home, he opened his e-mail to find this note from Rosa:

Dear Sam,
Of all the gifts I received today, yours was the nicest. How did you know I would love a book about women explorers and a cookbook of Puerto Rican foods? Now I have something to read that will inspire me to follow my dream of becoming an adventurer, and I have a book that I can share with my grandmother. She is getting older and wants to be sure her granddaughter knows how to make the wonderful foods of Puerto Rico. Thank you so much. You are a good friend. Love, Rosa. The week turned out to be a good one after all.

After reading the thank-you note from Rosa, Sam will most likely ____

No matter what kind of music you like, you have heard the guitar. It is one of the best-loved instruments. The guitar is a string instrument. Most guitars have six strings. Some have twelve. You can strum the strings all at once. You can also pluck them one at a time. The way you play the strings changes the way the guitar sounds. The strings stretch over a long piece of wood. This is called the neck. A round hole in the middle of the guitar makes it sound louder. Some guitars do not need this hole. They are electric guitars. They plug into speakers. Speakers make electric guitars louder. Quiet or loud. Twelve strings or six. Listen to those strings sing! It’s the fantastic guitar.

Cats make wonderful pets. Like dogs, they can be very loving. They like to rub up against people with their soft fur. When people pet cats, they purr to show they are happy. Cats are also good at telling you what they need. They will meow when they are hungry. They will scratch at a door if they want to be let inside. Sometimes cats like to be left alone, so they will not take up a lot of your time. They sleep more than most other animals. Some cats sleep 16 hours a day! When they wake up, they may want you to play with them. Some cats are shy and would rather hide behind a chair or a desk. But you will see them soon enough when it is feeding time!

My Trip to the Beach

Last weekend my family took a trip to the beach. We got there right before noon. The sun was very high in the sky, and it was hot! My sister Julie and I could not wait to swim. We ran right into the ocean, but it was so cold! We only swam for a few minutes before we could not stand the cold anymore. So we ran back out onto the sand. The sun dried us off very quickly. Then we were very hot again! So we ran back into the water. It was still very cold. Julie said, “Bill, let’s get out again.” I said, “Julie, be patient. We might get used to the cold.” And you know what? That is exactly what happened! We swam for a long time. It was a lot of fun!
