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.

Based on this passage, what would most likely be true about " snowbirds"?

  2. They would typically live in the northern and central states of the U.S.
  3. They tend to pack their travels bags with multiple layers of warm clothes.

In 1941, many countries of the world were at war. In Europe, Germany and Italy were fighting together to expand their territories. Germany had already taken over many countries, including the Netherlands, Poland, Denmark and France.

Germany had also been bombing Great Britain. The war in Europe had spilled into Africa, with German and Italian troops fighting British troops in North Africa.
Japan joined an alliance with Germany and Italy. This alliance was called the Axis. Japan wanted to take control of Southeast Asia and the South Pacific.

The U.S. had not joined the fighting, although it had loaned ships and supplies to Great Britain. Many Americans wanted to join the war to stop the Axis from taking over Europe and Asia. Other Americans were against joining in a far away war that did not concern the U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt wanted to discourage Japan from invading countries in Asia. In early 1941, he moved the U.S. warships in the Pacific from San Diego, California to Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Japan needed oil. The Dutch East Indies, which is now Indonesia, had a large supply of oil. The Japanese government decided to invade the Dutch East Indies in order to have an oil supply. They also developed a plan to keep the U.S. from interfering with the invasion. On Sunday, December 7, 1941, over 350 Japanese war planes from six aircraft carriers began bombing the U.S. ships at Pearl Harbor. The surprise attack began at 7:48 a.m. The attack was over in 90 minutes. Eight U.S. battleships had been damaged. Four of the battleships had been sunk. Eleven other ships, including cruisers and destroyers had been sunk or damaged, and 300 U.S. planes had been destroyed or damaged.
Over 2,400 U.S. military personnel had been killed, mostly on the USS Arizona, and 1,282 had been injured.

Congress declared war on Japan on December 8 and on Germany and Italy on December 11. The U.S. had entered World War II. In 1945, the U.S., Great Britain and their allies won the war against Japan, Germany and Italy.

Americans were very angry when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor. How do you think the attack changed the minds of those who had not wanted to go to war?
  1. Americans thought WWII was a waste of weapons.
  2. A direct attack on the U.S. changed public opinion to support the U.S. entering WWII.
  3. Japan became an enemy to Russia and Australia was furious.
