Re: Read Theory

I read about Drizzle. Drizzle is light rain. Drizzle raindrops are extremely small. They are smaller than half a millimeter in diameter—the size of the tip of a needle. Drops this small don't really even fall to the ground. Instead, they float. They get blown around by the wind. Sometimes they group together and this makes them heavy. In this case, they do fall to the ground. But they don't stay there for long.

I read about dust devils. Have you ever seen a dust devil? A dust devil looks like a tornado. It is tall and thin. It is made of air. It swirls around. But there is one important difference between a dust devil and a tornado. A tornado forms during stormy or cloudy weather.

Re: Read Theory

I read about the leaning town of Pisa.The Leaning Tower of Pisa is a famous building in Italy. The Tower is famous because it tilts to one side. The tower began to tilt during its construction in the 1200s. In the following decades, the tilt only got worse. The builders of the tower came up with different ideas to explain this. In the end, they concluded that the ground the tower sat on was too soft and caused the building to sink on one side.

Re: Read Theory

I read about the reasons wolves howl. Do wolves really howl at the moon? Probably not. Wolves tip their heads back when they howl. This makes it look like they are howling at the moon, but they are actually howling at each other. Wolves howl to communicate with each other. Sometimes they howl to tell each other where they are. Sometimes they howl to warn other wolves to stay away.

Re: Read Theory

I read about Formula 1. Formula One (F1) race cars are the fastest in the world. Their powerful engines push them to speeds of over 220 miles per hour (360 km/h). Powerful engines help F1 cars go fast. But that's not what makes them so fast around the track. It's the aerodynamics, not the engine, that keeps lap times low. Aerodynamics is the study of air flow. The way air flows over an F1 car is very important. Making the air flow better over the car is the best way to make the car go faster.
