Grade 4 Supporting Details CCSS: CCRA.R.3, RI.4.3
What is Dew?

Moisture collected from the atmosphere by the action of cold. During the day, the powerful heat of the sun causes to arise from the earth and water a moist vapor, which, after the sun sinks below the horizon, is condensed by the cold, and falls in the form of dew. Dews are more copious in the Spring and Autumn than at any other season; in warm countries than in cold ones: because of the sudden changes of temperature. Egypt abounds in dews all the summer; for the air being too hot to condense the vapors in the day-time, they never gather into clouds and form rain.

Which choice best shows how dew is formed?
  1. Moisture is collected -> The heat causes moisture to rise -> It becomes a moist vapor -> The cold causes it to condense -> It falls to the earth as dew
  2. Moisture is collected -> The sun causes moisture to rise -> It turns into water -> The water falls to the earth -> The cold causes it to condense
  3. Water falls to the earth -> Heat causes the water to rise -> It turns into a moist vapor -> The cold condenses the vapor
  4. Water falls to the earth -> The cold condenses the water -> It rises into the air -> The heat turns it into a vapor

Maggie's New Glove

1 "Maggie," her dad said, laughing. "Can't you wait until we get home?"

2 "Thanks for the glove, Dad," Maggie said again, scarcely hearing him. "It's perfect!" As usual, she started ripping the tags off as soon as they got to the car. "I can't wait to practice with it," she added.

3 "Well, remember," her dad warned, as they stopped at a traffic light, "that glove was expensive. You need to take good care of it. Okay slugger?"

4 "Sure, dad," Maggie answered assuredly. "Thanks a lot."

5 As soon as they got home, Maggie called her brother, Carl, outside to play catch. As they tossed the ball to each other, Scooter, Carl's new puppy, ran around happily, barking and trying to snatch the ball. The three of them had been playing for about an hour when their neighbor, Mrs. Matsuo, called out to them from next door. "I'm taking Tani and Kane to get ice cream. Why don't you ask your dad if you can come with us?"

6 "I don't know," Maggie hesitated. "I wanted to practice more."

7 Carl, however, was sprinting for the house. "Ice cream sounds great," he said. Maggie looked down at her new glove. "He said okay," Carl announced racing back outside. He had already put away his glove.

8 "Come on, Maggie," he said, running to join the others.

9 "Okay," Maggie agreed, dropping the ball and pulling off the glove. She started to drop it, too, but remembered her promise to her dad. Looking up at the dark clouds, she tossed the glove onto the covered porch instead. "It'll be safe there," she thought as she headed for the car.

10 Maggie had a great time at the ice-cream parlor. In fact, she forgot all about the glove until she got home.

11 "Where's my glove?" she wondered as she looked over at the porch. Then she saw Scooter standing nearby, happily wagging his tail. Her new glove was dangling from his mouth. "Oh, no!" she shouted, running to get it from him. It was too late. Her new glove was ruined. Scooter had torn large shreds from the webbing and left tooth marks and holes all over it.

12 "It's not Scooter's fault," Maggie told her dad, explaining what had happened. "I'm sorry."

13 Maggie still felt bad the next day when it was time for practice. "I guess you'll have to do," she said, grabbing her old glove.

14 "What are you doing with that?" her dad asked as she got in the car.

15 Maggie sighed. "I've got to use something."

16 "How about this instead?" He was holding another new glove, just like the first one. "I think you have learned your lesson. I'm sure you will be more responsible from now on."

17 "Thanks, Dad!" Maggie shouted.

18 At practice, Maggie showed her new glove to all of her teammates. After every play she carefully wiped off the dust. This time, she was determined to take care of her new glove.

19 "Thanks again, Dad," Maggie said as they got home after practice. "This was a great surprise."

20 "Hey, Maggie," her friend Lisa shouted when Maggie got out of the car. "Do you like my new bike?"

21 "Wow," Maggie said, as Lisa stopped by their fence.

22 "Want to take it for a ride?" Lisa offered.

23 "Sure!" Maggie answered.

24 "Don't be too long," Maggie's dad said, while walking inside. "It's almost dinnertime."

25 Maggie started to throw her glove on the porch, but spotting Scooter nearby, she changed her mind. "Oh, no," she said, grinning at the bouncy puppy. She instead carefully hung her glove on the fence.

26 That night, Maggie lay in bed listening to the rain and thinking about Lisa's bike, having forgotten all about her new glove still hanging on the fence.

Which detail from the selection shows that Carl behaves in a responsible way?
  1. Carl tosses the ball to his sister and his new puppy.
  2. Carl puts his glove away before going for ice cream.
  3. Carl hurries to the neighbor's car.
  4. Carl tells Maggie to join the others.
