1 1 of 9 Name Grade 3 CFA UNIT 6 Out of This World! Read the following two passages and answer the questions that follow. Man on the Moon Even though spaceships have traveled to the Moon, people cannot visit the Moon without special suits. The Moon has no air or water. Plants and animals can t live there either. Astronauts first landed on the Moon in After that, there were six more trips to the Moon. They brought back Moon rocks, which scientists are still studying. There are holes, or craters, all over the Moon s surface. Scientists believe that meteorites smashed into the Moon millions of years ago and formed the craters. (Lexile Level: 710) *Permission granted for classroom use.

2 2 of 9 They Forgot to Plant an Acorn on the Moon 1 The surface of the moon looks a lot like a desert. It's dry, rocky, and sandy. There are no plants on the moon. Not even a small cactus. 2 In the year 1969 human beings from planet Earth first stepped on the moon. They walked around a bit and collected some moon rocks to take back with them. By mistake, they forgot to plant the acorn. 3 They had brought an acorn with them, along with a watering can and some potting soil. They were supposed to plant the acorn a few hundred yards away from the spaceship, but they forgot. They plain forgot. 4 You can't really blame them though. They had so much else to do. Every minute of every day they had something important to do. People from NASA were telling them what to do over the radio. 5 But what if they had remembered to plant the acorn? What if they had dug down a couple of inches in the loose soil, dropped some sweet-smelling potting soil into the hole, and gently placed the acorn in its new home? What if they covered the acorn with some more sweet-smelling potting soil, and gently watered it with their watering can? 6 An acorn doesn't need a lot of things to grow. It needs water, it needs soil, it needs sunlight, and it needs carbon dioxide gas. Now, there's plenty of soil and plenty of sunlight on the moon. But water and carbon dioxide are in short supply. That's why the astronauts brought a watering can with them. 7 They also brought a small plastic greenhouse with them. If they had planted the acorn and it had sprouted, it would pop up through the soil right in the middle of the greenhouse. As the little oak tree grew, its branches would reach out and bump into the walls of the greenhouse. One day, the top of the oak tree would poke its way through the top of the greenhouse. 8 So, it might be possible for an oak tree to grow on the moon. If only the astronauts had not forgotten to plant the acorn. (Lexile Level: 790) *Permission granted for classroom use.

5 5 of 9 Read the following passage and table and answer the questions that follow. Swimming the Channel 1 In the sport of swimming, people have set many types of records. Some records are for speed or distance. Other records are for swimming across difficult waters. The English Channel swim is one of these. Many people have dreamed about swimming across this stretch of water, but very few have done it. Lynne Cox is one of the few. 2 The English Channel is between the French and English coasts. At its shortest point, the distance across it is twenty-two miles, but the water is so cold and the currents so strong that only ten percent of those who have tried the swim have made it across. The first swimmer to do so was a man named Matthew Webb. He made the swim in 1875, and it took him more than twenty hours. 3 Lynne Cox first swam across the Channel in She had started swimming at the age of three in Maine, but it wasn t until her family moved to California that Lynne discovered her love of swimming in open water. It was then that Lynne knew she wanted to swim the Channel. At age fifteen, Lynne was the youngest person ever to attempt the swim. She made it across in less than ten hours, which at that time was faster than any other man or woman had ever done it. This first swim covered a stretch of twenty-seven miles. The next year, Lynne returned and broke her own record. Other swimmers viewed Lynne as a strong competitor. She swam a thirty-three mile stretch of the Channel in nine hours and thirty-six minutes. (Lexile Level: 870) Diebels. *Permission granted for classroom use.
