Once you start yawning, it's hard to stop.

People        yawn        for many reasons. They yawn when they wake up. They yawn when they go to sleep. They yawn        when        they are bored. They yawn when their ears are plugged up. They yawn when they see other yawns.

Humans aren't the only             creatures             that yawn. Dogs yawn. Cats yawn. Even birds yawn. Fish yawn       too      . Humans can even yawn when they're still in the womb.

What is a yawn? It's a            movement            of the muscles in your chest, mouth, and throat. Yawning helps wet tiny air sacs in your         lungs        .

People can't yawn on command. When they feel a yawn          coming          on, it's really hard to stop it. Scientists aren't sure why people yawn. Hippocrates was an ancient             scientist            . He thought yawning was a way to remove bad air from the lungs. In the 17th century other scientists studied yawning. They thought yawning increased your         heart         rate. They also thought it helped the level of oxygen in the blood. Today, scientists think yawning has to do with changing states. You yawn when you go from awake to asleep. You yawn when you go from asleep to         awake        . You also may yawn to go from alert to bored.

One thing is for certain - yawning is contagious. When you see someone yawn, your         brain         tells you to yawn too. It's a way to help you feel what others are feeling.
Grade 5 Places (Stories) CCSS: CCRA.R.2, CCRA.R.10, RI.5.2, RI.5.10
Every year, countless people from some of the northern and central states of the country leave snow, ice and freezing temperatures behind by heading south. These "snowbirds", as they are often called, trade in their          gloves          and hats for             sunscreen             and bathing suits. Heading south to escape winter's chill is common, but some             travelers             do just the opposite. They pack the extra layers and the snow boots and head to the village of Jukkasjarvi in          Sweden         . Once they arrive, they check into their hotel, but they don't take off their heavy coats and           scarves          . Why? Because at Sweden's Ice Hotel, everything from the beds to tables is made out of blocks of       ice      .

Why would anyone want to travel to one of the           coldest           places in the world during the winter          season         ? That was a question that a tourist company asked more than 20 years ago. They wanted more tourists so they tried something new. They built a 60 square foot         igloo         out of ice blocks and held an art exhibit inside. People came, but not that many.

One day, a group came to see the           exhibit          , but arrived too late. Instead of leaving, they spread out their sleeping bags and spent the night in the        snow       . Suddenly, a brand new idea was born! The tourist company built an entire         hotel         out of ice blocks taken from the nearby Torne River. They advertised this          unique          hotel all over the world and soon, people came to explore. Now,           curious           guests check in and enjoy the cold. Then, when the warmth of spring returns, the hotel melts into the ground and disappears. It will be           rebuilt           when winter returns.
