Sometimes, friends join our family celebrations. Company gathers in our yard. Neighbors, friends and family come over. There is a big crowd.
Everyone brings something to the party. There is plenty of food. Dad cooks. Mom makes salad. We drink lemonade. We eat dessert.
We laugh and talk. We play games and have fun. You can tell that we are having a good time. I like to see everyone together.
How Do They Grow?
A butterfly must find a place to lay eggs. A leaf is a good place. Soon an egg will hatch.
A tiny caterpillar crawls out. The caterpillar starts to eat right away. It munches on plants. Next, the caterpillar builds a chrysalis around itself. The chrysalis sticks to a tree branch.
It hangs there and does not move. But changes happen inside. Then the butterfly breaks out of the chrysalis. It spreads its wings. It is ready to fly.
Biomes All Over the World
The arctic tundra is the coldest biome on Earth. Trees do not grow in the tundra. Winds are very strong. Ice covers the ground, and water freezes. Animals such as polar bears must be able to live in the cold. Most animals that live in the tundra have extra fat to keep them warm. Many birds and other animals migrate, or move, to a warmer climate for the winter.
In the summer, the weather is warm enough in the tundra for things to grow. Plants and flowers appear. These plants and flowers can live in colder temperatures. Animals that eat plants and grass can find more food during the summer.
Doctors Without Borders
In 2004, there was a tsunami, or tidal wave, in South Asia. The tsunami destroyed many towns. Many people were hurt or killed.
Doctors Without Borders worked for more than a year in countries that were hit by the tsunami. They gave people shots to make sure they did not get sick. The doctors gave people supplies like tents and clothing. They talked to people about what had happened. Sometimes just being there to listen to the victims helped the most.
Sometimes the volunteers help people in a town build new hospitals. That involves real teamwork!
Sometimes the best help the volunteers can give is training. It can be better for Doctors Without Borders to help train local doctors to take care of people after a crisis. The local doctors can give care to sick and hurt people after Doctors Without Borders leaves the area.

How Attitude Helps
Is your personality set, or can you change it? Some people believe you are born with a set of characteristics, while others believe your personality shows your attitude, which can change. Since Norman Vincent Peale published his book The Power of Positive Thinking in 1952, people have debated how our perceptions of the world and ourselves impact our success.
Think about it. When you try hard and fail, do you give up, or do you say, “Oh well, I’ll focus harder next time”? Researchers in the self-help industry say people with positive attitudes are more likely to succeed. They say empowerment comes from a personal choice to reflect and then change the way you think, not from anything in your environment. Others argue it depends on the setting. There may be factors outside your control that impact your success.
One thing is certain, there are many examples of the power of positive thinking. Talk shows feature regular people who used to be held back by negative thinking, but changed their lives by changing their attitudes. As Helen Keller once said, “We can do anything we want as long as we stick to it long enough.”
The City of York
The city of York, in England, started more than a thousand years ago as a Viking town called Jorvik. More than 10,000 people lived there. Scientists have learned a lot about the daily life of the Vikings in Jorvik. Most people had a small house made of wood, with only one room. Rich people lived in larger houses with a living room, a hall, a kitchen, a bedroom, and a storage room.
Men and women in Jorvik did different work. The men worked on farms, or they made things out of wood or metal. They also sailed boats for fishing or traveling. Sometimes the men had to go and fight to protect their family or to support the king. Women worked around the house. They also worked on farms, taking care of farm animals and make cheese. They made all of the family’s clothes. Children didn’t go to school. They helped their parents at work, and learned about history, religion, and the law from stories. They became adults at the age of 15 or 16. A girl’s father usually picked her husband for her.
Jorvik was a very rich town. Scientists have found cups, knives, combs and even shoes there. The Vikings of Jorvik are many different kinds of food, and they wore jewelry from many countries.
Today, visitors to the Jorvik Viking Center can walk through Viking buildings, and talk to people in Viking costumes. They can put on Viking clothes, taste Viking food, and even buy Viking gifts. In Jorvik, the Viking past is alive.
Have you ever been “called out” for self-destructive behavior? Have you ever had friends who behaved in a way that hurt themselves? Do they have an unattractive image of themselves? Having problems is normal, but sometimes problems can spin out of control.
One sign of a serious problem is erratic behavior. Sudden shifts in personality and appearance can be signs of underlying emotional problems. So what do you do?
Some people consider walking away because the problem is so bad. Family and friends may decide something has to be done and call for an intervention by a small group of people.
At their first meeting, participants reveal their different perspectives on the person’s problems. Then, they agree on a date to do the intervention. They start the intervention by telling the person why they are there and why his or her behavior worries them. After that they give suggestions for where the person can get help. Lastly, and most importantly, they promise to always be there for the person.
Sometimes interventions turn out poorly. So before having an intervention, it is best to talk with a school counselor or teacher.
Correct the underlined mistake in each sentence by choosing the appropriate word/s.
Age in America
How much does age matter? In the U.S., some people believe the stereotype that young people are more energetic and capable, while older people are wiser and more experienced. This idea can influence the way people participate in popular culture, sports, and the workplace. Do you interpret it as a kind of ageism? Some people feel age restrictions are a form of discrimination.
Supporters of age restrictions say the restrictions make sense. For example, on a popular reality competition for pop singers most teens would not make a connection with a contestant star over 50. Similarly in sports, top athletes are usually under 25 because they are thought to be faster and able to recover more quickly from injury. Older athletes, however, are important role models to many.
While federal law can be ambiguous about age restrictions, opponents of these restrictions respond that too many jobs have stated age restrictions. For example, you must be 30 years old to be a U.S. senator, or you must retire at age 65 if you are an airline pilot.
Research on population growth in the U.S. shows that both groups are growing rapidly. Finding ways to better accommodate the energy and abilities of both groups can benefit people of all ages.
Norman Cousin’s Laugh Therapy
In the summer of 1964, well-known writer and editor Norman Cousins became very ill. His body ached and he felt constantly tired. It was difficult for him to even move around. He consulted his physician, who did many tests. Eventually he was diagnosed as having ankylosing spondylitis, a very serious and destructive form of arthritis. His doctor told him that he would become immobilized and eventually die from the disease. He was told that he had only a 1 in 500 chance of survival.
Despite the diagnosis, Cousins was determined to overcome the disease and survive. He had always been interested in medicine and had read the book The Stress of Life (1956) by Hans Selye, an organic chemist, which discussed how body chemistry and health can be damaged by emotional stress and negative attitudes. This made Cousins think about the possible benefits of positive attitudes and emotions. He thought, “If negative emotions produce (negative) changes in the body, wouldn’t positive emotions produce positive chemical changes? Is it possible that love, hope, faith, laughter, confidence, and the will to live have positive therapeutic value?”
He decided to concentrate on positive emotions as a remedy to heal some of the symptoms of his ailment. In addition to his conventional medical treatment, he tried to put himself in situations that would elicit positive emotions. “Laugh Therapy” became part of his treatment. He scheduled time each day for watching comedy films, reading humorous books, and doing other activities that would bring about laughter and positive emotions. Within eight days of starting his laugh “laugh therapy” program, his pain began to decrease and he was able to sleep more easily. His body chemistry even began to change, and doctors were able to see an improvement in his condition! He was able to return to work in a few months’ time and actually reached complete recovery after a few years.
Skeptical readers may question the doctor’s preliminary diagnosis, and argue that Cousins was not really healed because he didn’t have the disease in the first place. However, Cousins believes his recovery is the result of a mysterious mind-body interaction. His “laugh therapy” is a good example of one of the many alternative or noncoventional, medical treatments people look to today.

In Your Head
Hypnotism has come a long way since its beginnings. Hypnotists used to be famous for putting people in trances and getting them to do things they would never do in real life. They were entertainers. Today, doctors accept hypnosis among the forms of alternative medicine that doesn’t use pills or drugs.
Trained hypnotists, called hypnotherapists, use simple techniques, such as breathing deeply, to put a person into a sleepy state of relaxation. Then, the hypnotist begins a conversation designed to access the patient’s subconscious mind. This is where the brain stores memories, thoughts, and ideas it is not using. These memories, thoughts, and ideas it is not using. These memories may go all the way back to early childhood.
Many people are not aware of their subconscious mind and must use hypnosis to find out what is causing their fears, stress or pain. Other people have used hypnosis to rid themselves of unwanted behaviors such as smoking.
The majority of people react very well to hypnosis. Only about 20% of adults respond poorly or not at all. The results, however, are hard to measure. In the end, the results are up to each individual’s interpretation.
