Lesson 10B: Multiple Paragraphs and Connecting 2 Quiz
Question #1: Albert’s devoted pig, Molly, eagerly snuffed around as the farmer walked alongside him. It was a working day for both as they carefully canvassed the area. Suddenly, Molly grunted, squealed, and excitedly began to dig into the dirt for his treasure. As the farmer coaxed the pig away with a treat, he picked up a large brown lump. This special lump was a valuable treasure—a truffle, a rare food delicacy that will sell for a lot of money.

Question #2: The colossal saguaro cactus lives in the American southwest desert and has a long lifespan, often surviving over 150 years. Unlike many cacti, some never grow arms. A spear is a saguaro cactus without arms. Although this type of cactus lacks arms, it can grow as high as up to sixty feet tall! It also has an extremely thick trunk that weighs several tons. The trunk’s pleated skin expands to hold up to 100 gallons of water. So, when a rare rain occurs, the plant can absorb and contain all the water that it needs to survive drought. This is because rain is rare in the desert region.

Question #3: Old Faithful is earth’s natural phenomenon. This geyser is located in Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. Approximately every hour, people gather to watch this unique event. First, a soft rumbling occurs deep down in the earth. Then, a thrust of hot water and steam emerge into the air for several minutes. These eruptions can shoot up to 8,400 gallons of boiling water as high as 185 feet! Old Faithful is an American wonder!

Question #4: The melted ice from global warming seeped through the cracks of the iceberg. The 200-foot chunk broke off and smashed brutally into the water. Floating through the warm waters, only 20 percent could be seen. Traveling through these waters, the iceberg dwindled. Within the month, the iceberg became the size of an ice cube.

Question #5: A pack of six wolves in the cold winter tundra were looking for food. They hadn’t eaten for a week because it was a challenge to find food. Everything was frozen with knee-deep snow covering the area. Alas, the wolves spotted some young calves for their meal. As the wolves crept closer, they were greeted by a circle of musk oxen, protecting their babies with their sharp horns facing out, ready to take on the wolves. Inside the circle were the young calves, protected by the larger animals. After the wolves assessed the situation, they decided that the calves were not an option and decided to look for other prey.

Question #6: The large buzzard scoped the area as it floated high in the sky. Suddenly, it spotted two dead bodies on the ground. It circled around to get a closer view of the situation, anticipating a tasty meal ahead. As it almost approached its prey, the two dead boys jumped up, screaming and laughing. This startled the buzzard; he let out a large squawk and then flapped away. The boys laughed and laughed.

Question #7: Some animals need help consuming food. For instance, leaf cutter ants get assistance from fungus. The ants first climb plants and cut the fresh leaves into small pieces with their jaws. Then they carry 20 times their body weight of vegetation on their backs to their nest. There, they chew up the leaves and spit them out. Next, the leaves are left so that fungus can grow and consume them. Once the fungus consumes the leaves, the ants eat the fungus for their nourishment. The fungus helps metabolize the leaves so that the ants can digest them.

Question #8: Arctic terns are like other migrating birds, but with one difference—their two homes are on polar ends of the earth. The average annual roundtrip length of migration is 44,100 miles! These are the longest migrations of all birds. Each summer (June-August) they nest in their noisy colonies above the Arctic Circle. When winter approaches, off they go southward toward Antarctica, where it is summertime. The birds stay in this home for several months until the winter ends in the northern hemisphere. Then they are off for their next long flight northward!
