A Good Habit
Rian reads more than anyone he knows. He loves to read during all of his free time. His friends used tease him because he would rather read than play video games, but his parents and his teachers are proud of him. They say reading is important, and it will help him learn about the world around him. They also tell him it is a good habit to read on a regular basis.
One day Rian was reading a magazine article about volcanoes. He told his friends all about volcanoes and what causes them to erupt. The very next week, his class was assigned a science project about volcanoes. Guess who everyone wanted in their project group? Rian’s friends weren’t teasing him anymore. Rian ended up being in a group with Myra, Ariana and Hridhaan. The assignment was to create a poster board with information about volcanoes and to build a volcano model.
Rian made copies of the magazine article about volcanoes so his project partners could read about them too. They also went to the library to look for more information about volcanoes. The group met at Ariana’s house that night to organize the information and decide what they wanted to put on the poster board. They all asked Rian what he thought was most important. Rian explained to them all he knew about volcanoes and on what they should focus.
The next night they met at Hridhaan’s house to build their volcano. They used cardboard and modeling clay. First they made a volcano shape with the cardboard, and then they covered the shape in brown and red clay. The red was lava flowing down the volcano. They also attached red clay to the top of the volcano to make it look like it was erupting.
The volcano looked great. Rian, Myra, Ariana and Hridhaan were very proud of their hard work. When they turned in their project, their teacher was proud too. Thanks to Rian’s good habit, they earned an A+ on both parts of the project.
