Fred s Big Adventure My grandparents have a cat named Fred. He is thin and has short, black and white striped fur. Fred is about ten years old, and he likes to sleep in the sun, eat tuna fish, and chase butterflies. He is scared of strangers, so he hides whenever my grandparents have a friend come to visit. He always runs behind the bookshelf, or under the bed. As soon as the visitors leave, he comes out again. One time, a workman came to fix a hole in the bathroom wall. After he left, Fred did not come out of hiding. My grandparents were not worried until dinnertime, when Fred did not come to eat. The next morning, he did not come for his breakfast. After two days, they were very worried. My grandmother thought he had run away because he was so scared of the workman. On the third day, my grandmother told my grandfather that she thought she heard Fred mewing. He asked her where, and she said that she had heard Fred s voice when she was in the bathroom. They went into the bathroom, and he could hear Fred too, but they couldn t see him anywhere. Suddenly, my grandfather had an idea. He got a hammer, and broke the new tiles that the workman had set three days before. After he broke them, he pulled them off the wall, and then he poked a hole in the plaster underneath. As soon as he did, Fred jumped out of the wall! When the workman had come, Fred had hidden from him in the hole in the wall, and had gotten trapped inside the wall! Since his big adventure, Fred is a little different. He still likes tuna fish, and chasing butterflies, but he never goes into the bathroom. He still hides when guests come over, but he makes sure to hide in places that he can get out of again! 3

5 Read this story about crocodiles, and then answer questions 1-6. Darken the circle in front of your answer. You may look back at the story to answer the questions. Crocodiles Like lizards and snakes, crocodiles belong to the reptile family. Crocodiles have very rough, scaly skin, short legs, and long bodies. They also have very sharp teeth. Crocodiles are very large animals, and can grow to be 12 feet long. Crocodiles do not like the cold, so they live in warm places. They do like water, though, and so they always live near lakes, rivers, and swamps. Crocodiles like to float and swim in the water. They swim using their large, very strong tails. Crocodiles mostly eat small fish, birds, and turtles, but if a larger animal like a wild pig or a dog comes too close to the water, a crocodile will eat it too. Crocodiles are dangerous, and can hurt people who get too close to them. Like all other reptiles, crocodiles lay eggs. They bury their eggs in leaves, grasses, or in sand. When the eggs hatch, the mother crocodile carries the baby crocodiles in her mouth to the water. Some people hunt crocodiles for their skin. The skin is used to make fancy handbags, belts, and shoes. Crocodiles are in danger of becoming extinct because so many have been killed. There are laws to protect crocodiles from hunters. 5

6 1. How do crocodiles use their strong tails? Ο to eat Ο to walk Ο to swim Ο to sleep 2. What does the word dangerous mean? Ο kind Ο sleepy Ο hungry Ο harmful 3. What does the mother crocodile do when the baby crocodiles hatch? Ο She takes them to the water. Ο She eats them. Ο She feeds them fish. Ο She buries them in the sand. 4. Crocodiles like to. Ο live in cold places Ο live in warm places Ο live in deserts Ο live in caves 5. The word rough means. Ο wet Ο soft Ο not smooth Ο thin 6. What is an extinct species? Ο a species like cows that is raised and cared for by people Ο a species that travels and does not live in only one place Ο a species whose members are all dead Ο a species that lives only in the water 6
