Name It was a long way to Aunt Ruth’s house. Terry and Mary Beth started getting a little bit too loud in the back seat, so Dad said, “Girls, settle down. Be quiet and read your books.” They knew Dad meant business. Just then, Mary Beth saw a bee flying around in the car. Her eyes got big, and she ducked her head, swatting the bee away. Terry looked at her, and Mary Beth loudly whispered, “BEEEE!” Terry wanted to scream, but she knew Dad would get mad. “What are you two doing back there?” Dad asked. Just then, the bee landed on Dad’s bald head. Mary Beth knew she had to save him from getting stung, so she whopped Dad on the head with her book. Dad jerked the steering wheel, and the car ran off the road and through a fence. The cows that were in the field ran away. Later, a police officer gave Dad a ticket for reckless driving. Draw a line to match the cause to the effect. The girls got too which let the loud, so cows out. The girls saw a bee land on Dad’s bald Dad said to be quiet.

Name Mount Saint Helens is an active volcano in the state of Washington. In 1980, this volcano erupted, spewing hot lava into the air. Explosions caused a huge cloud of dust. This gray dust filled the air and settled on houses and cars many miles away. The thick dust made it hard for people and animals to breathe. The explosions flattened trees on the side of the mountain. The hot rocks caused forest fires. The snow that was on the mountain melted quickly, causing floods and mud slides.
