1 Name: Date: Read the story to find out what scientists really did with a spider named Arabella and then answer the questions that follow. Arabella the Spider Arabella was a spider with a special talent. She could build the best spiderwebs at Marshall Space Flight Center. Her skill at constructing webs landed her a job as the first spider to go up in space. Scientists knew that Arabella would have problems building webs during the space flight. There is no gravity out in space. Everything is weightless and will float if not attached to something stable. Scientists wanted to see if Arabella could adapt to weightlessness. Arabella didn't know that she was weightless in space, but when she took her first step, she knew that something was wrong. Her eight legs seemed useless as she slid across the wall of her cage. Nevertheless, Arabella quickly learned to move in her cage. On Earth, Arabella would spin a long, sticky thread and let the wind attach it to a plant. But there was no wind in the spaceship; so she had to carry the thread from corner to corner and attach it to the frame by herself. Arabella tried to find a new way to conquer each problem. Her first webs in space were not very neat, but after three days she was able to build a web as perfect as the ones she had made on Earth. However, there were no insects to get caught in her web; so the astronauts fed her bits of steak instead. In this way they helped her overcome her only unsolved problem. 1.

5 Protecting the Pandas by Robin L. Santos The wind whistles down the cold, snowy mountains in China. All is quiet in the bamboo forest below. Suddenly CRUNCH, CRACK, SNAP! A bearlike creature appears out of the bamboo. For hours, the animal munches on one bamboo shoot after another. Then slowly, it lumbers over to a hollow tree, squeezes itself in, and falls fast asleep. Many people recognize this animal by its white and black markings. Do you? It's a giant panda! Giant pandas have lived in the mountains of China for thousands of years. But now these special creatures are in danger of dying out. Some scientists say there are fewer than 1,000 giant pandas left in the wild in China. Pandas in Danger Pandas need a lot of food to survive. They sometimes eat fish and small rodents. But their main food is bamboo. A panda can eat up to 85 pounds of bamboo in just one day! Long ago, finding bamboo was easy for pandas. China had many bamboo forests. But people have cut down more and more of these forests to make room for villages and farms. So pandas are losing their homes and their food. Sometimes the pandas starve. Another danger for pandas is poachers. Poachers are people who hunt and kill animals, even though it is against the law. Poachers hunt pandas. Then they sell their skins in foreign countries for lots of money. People Helping Pandas Many people from around the world are working to help save giant pandas. Some people in China have set up special areas, called reserves, where the pandas can be safe. On the reserves, workers try to protect pandas from poachers. They also stop villagers from cutting down bamboo forests. Sometimes workers buy land from villagers who live on the reserves. Then they can plant more bamboo for the pandas. More bamboo forests and fewer poachers should help more pandas survive in the future. 12. The MAIN food pandas eat is A. mice. B. bamboo. C. fish. D. rice. 13. Which word means the OPPOSITE of the word fewer? A. more B. stop C. add D. less 5

6 14. Which word sounds the same as main? A. mine B. man C. may D. mane 15. A reserve is a place where A. pandas are kept in cages. B. villagers can cut bamboo. C. pandas are protected. D. people go to catch pandas. 03_2_Read_For_Info_T5 (03_2_Read_For_Info_T5) 6
