  3. Speaking and Listening: Flexible communication and collaboration Including but not limited to skills necessary for formal presentations, the Speaking and Listening standards require students to develop a range of broadly useful oral communication and interpersonal skills. Students must learn to work together, express and listen carefully to ideas, integrate information from oral, visual, quantitative, and media sources, evaluate what they hear, use media and visual displays strategically to help achieve communicative purposes, and adapt speech to context and task.

  27. Tropical forests cover just 7% of the world’s surface, but these forests contain more than half of the world’s living species. A sad fact is that these forests are being destroyed. Each year, 40 million acres--about the size of the state of Washington--disappear, along with the plants and animals that live there.

  28. They were huge--bigger than a car, even bigger than a house. Suddenly there were three more of them. My heart started beating so fast I thought it was going to burst. I looked around for a place to hide.

  29. Life is too crazy. We are always busy. We rush to get up, wolf down breakfast, run to school, race to get kids to practice, hurry through meals, do our chores…we are always in a hurry.
