FAMILY CAMPING

Ryan and his family went camping. They set up a tent and sleeping bags. Ryan's mom started to make a fire in the fire pit. Ryan and his sister, Lilly, searched for sticks. The sticks had to be long with a point at the end. The family was going to roast marshmallows!

Ryan and Lilly found the perfect sticks. Their mom opened a bag of marshmallows. Ryan put one marshmallow at the end of his stick. Lilly did, too. Then they carefully held their marshmallows over the fire and waited.

The marshmallows started to heat up. Ryan observed as the white treat turned brown. He knew that his marshmallow could not change back to white. He made sure not to burn it. Then Ryan removed the brown marshmallow from the fire. He waited a minute for it to cool. Then he took a bite. It was warm, gooey, and delicious!
