WAYS TO BE GREEN

Are you ready tAre you ready to o go GREEN?  Many Americans are becoming GREEN.  So what does being GREEN actually mean?  Well, it means you are becoming friendly with the environment.  It means you care about your environment and what you do in your daily activities that affects the environment.
So, if you're not already GREEN, how do you become GREEN?  Here are some tips on how to become GREEN or GREENER.

1.  Take a bag with you to the store.  All those plastic grocery bags costs energy to make and if they are not used again, they end up in our landfills.

2.  Recycle all your plastics.  Plastics use energy to make and do not breakdown quickly in a landfill.  Recycle those plastics so they may live again.

3.  Drink from a glass or mug.  All that paper that you use to drink soda or coffee cost energy to make and again often ends up in landfills.

4.  Turn down the water heater in your home just a few degrees and save energy.  Turning down the water heater just 10 degrees can save TONS of energy.

5.  Switch out the incandescent bulbs in your house for fluorescent bulbs.  This may save over 50 dollars per year and save energy.

6.  Lower your heating thermostat by a degree or two in the winter and raise it in the summer.  This will save energy for everyone.

7.  Drive slower and start slower.  Racing off and quick stops wastes gasoline.  A heavy foot can cost a driver in gasoline.  (And brake pads.)

8.  Replace older appliances with new energy-efficient models.  Making electricity uses a lot of energy.

9.  Unplug items that use electricity when they are not being used.  Many of the chargers used today consume energy when they are not charging anything.

10.  Dry some of your clothes outside instead of using the dryer.  Let the warm air dry your clothes instead of fossil fuels.

INTERMEDIATE REAGINGS

The Planets

  The Sun is at the center of the planets. Close to it are the inner planets - Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars.
  Mercury the planet closest to the Sun, is a cratered rock not much bigger than our Moon.  It is incredibly hot and unable to support any kind of life.  The atmosphere contains sodium and potassium.
  Venus is the next planet from the Sun and is about the same size as the Earth.  The atmosphere is made up of mainly carbon dioxide.  The surface temperature can be as high as 480 degrees Celsius.  There is no life of any kind on the planet Venus.
Earth
  Earth is the only planet that has the conditions to support life.  The surface is neither very cold nor very hot.  Water can exist in all its three forms - as gas, liquid, and solid.  These conditions allow plants and animals to live and reproduce.
  Mars, the first planet beyond Earth is smaller than the Earth.  The atmosphere is made up mostly of carbon dioxide.  Water exists on this planet, but only in the form of ice.  The whole planet is a red, lifeless desert.
  The outer planets, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune are called the gas giants.  They are much larger than the Earth. The outermost planet, Pluto, is no longer classified as a planet.  It is now called a dwarf Planet.  It is so far away, it is a mystery.

Martial Arts
  The martial arts consist of a series of hand-to-hand unarmed combat tactics.  The most popular are karate, judo, jujitsu, and kung fu.  Many experts believe kung fu does not belong in the category of unarmed self-defense because it can become a killer art in its most violent form.
  Chinese jujitsu and its offshoot, judo, are thousands of years old.  They began in China and Japan.  During the Middle Ages in Japan, common people were not allowed to carry weapons.  They devised a self-defense technique that involved a series of holds, trips, strangles, and falls.  By the 1700's, judo and jujitsu were no longer required for self-defense, but these sports survived stressing grace, physical discipline, and spiritual concentration.
Martial Arts
  Jigaro Kano, a Japanese man, founded the first judo school in 1882.  He introduced the system of "belts," with a white belt for a novice and a black belt for an expert.  This system has been extended to karate as well.  Judo came to America in 1902.
  Karate was introduced in an Okinawa school in 1905.  By the year 1922, it had spread to Japan, and eventually was practiced worldwide.  Today, the World Union of Karatedo (Karate) Organization sets the rules governing the use of striking, punching, and kicking on various parts of the body.  Matches last from two to three minutes and points are scored for blows to the neck, face, kidneys, and midsection of an opponent.  The blows are not actually landed: if they were, they could disable or even kill.

Earthquake!

  Maggie had never experienced an earthquake before, only prepared for it.  As long as she could remember, preparing for an earthquake was routine at school.  Her family as well had made plans in the event of a natural disaster.   Living on the west coast of the United States was earthquake country.   However, it was not the same.  Today Maggie was home alone.  Her mind focused on her parents and what could be happening to them.  Maggie knew her mom would be driving home on the busy, congested freeway.  Her mind was preoccupied with preparing supper for Maggie's dad.  Maggie's dad was due to arrive at the airport.  He was coming home from a two week business trip.
  Maggie arrived home from school at the regular time.  She was grabbing a snack from the almost bare pantry, when she felt it.  First just a tremor, then the violent shaking.  Maggie quickly scurried under the large, oak table in the dining room.   The sounds of breaking glass and the crashing of numerous items was deafening.  The table remained intact, and Maggie hugged herself in fear.  Her mind focusing on her parents and what apparent danger they might be in.
  After what seemed like an eternity the earthquake appeared to be over.  Maggie could hear the sound of water rushing below her in the basement.  The smell of natural gas was present in the air.  Maggie knew where the main water valve was located.   Dad had shown her where it was and how to turn it off.   Slowly and cautiously she came out from under the table.  The once tidy ranch home was now almost unrecognizable.  Walls had toppled over and electric sparks were shooting from the outlets.  As Maggie approached the open basement door she could see the steps were still intact.  Carefully holding the handrail she made her way down into the dark basement.  While still on the steps she felt the water rising and rising.  Placing her feet firmly on the floor Maggie felt a sudden surge of pain as a large ceiling beam hit her head and shoulder.   She fell unconscious onto a pile of storage boxes.....

ADVANCED READINGS

Archeologists

  Archeologists are scientists who study the remains of past civilizations.  They reconstruct the past by gathering clues.  Bones are one kind of clue.  Artifacts and fossils are other clues.  Artifacts are objects from the past, usually made by people.   Fossils are impressions or remains of animals and plants that have turned to stone.  Archeologists begin to collect evidence at a spot where people might have lived and worked.  Scientists begin to clear away layers of earth to find signs of human civilization.  Archeologists call this spot a site, or dig.
  Archeologists remove each layer by hand, using many kinds of tools, from shovels to dentist instruments.  They work very slowly because they do not want to damage the delicate artifacts and fossils buried in the soil.  Workers sift the dirt and rubble through a sieve.  They look for things like bits of pottery, tools, seeds, weapons, and bones.
  Archeologists record the exact location of every item they find.  Then they use high-tech equipment to determine the age of each item.  Archeologists must know as much as possible to identify artifacts.

Life on a Glacier

  Is there life on a glacier?  Of course there is!
  The surface of a glacier is a jumble of rock and dirty snow which has been folded and contorted by stress. If you look at it up close it looks like a barren wasteland.  What could possibly live there?  
  The wind is responsible for bringing life to the glacier.  As wind moves over land, it gathers bits of dust and debris.  When the wind sweeps over the glacier it deposits part of the load.  Tiny insects such as spiders, beetles, and flies, grains of pollen from flowers, and minerals are mixed in with the dust.  As these are spread over the snow and ice, they become a feast for tiny creatures such as the snow flea.  The snow flea is a tiny insect that crawls around on the glacier in search of pollen.
  Another creature which exists on a glacier is the ice worm. It is a relative of the earthworm, but less than an inch long. It lives hidden in the cold glacial ice.  Ice worms wriggle between ice crystals near the glacier's surface, but sometimes can be found as deep as six feet.  Ice worms burrow into the glacier's ice during the heat of the day and inch to the surface around dusk to feed.  They depend mainly on the wind to bring their dinner of pollen and other plant materials.  
  Ice worms can survive only under certain conditions.  Temperatures around freezing (32 degrees F.) are perfect.  If they get caught in the sun's heat where it is warmer than 40 degrees F., they will die.  When the ice around them freezes solid and becomes colder than 22 degrees F., their bodies freeze.  Therefore, ice worms are found only in glaciers near the ocean, or where the climate is warm enough for melt water to be in the ice at all times.
  A special algae that grows on the surface of the snow provides food for the ice worm.  Snow alga is a type of green alga.  Its color is red, which provides a screen against the bright rays of the sun.  
  Birds flying over a glacier feed on ice worms and insects, plucking them from the ice.  Other animals use glaciers as a temporary home and a resting place.

The main idea of this passage is:
Ice worms are found only in glaciers near the oceans. Many forms of life exist on a glacier.
