All responses to questions should be written in COMPLETE SENTENCES THAT REPHRASE THE QUESTION using EXPLICIT EVIDENCE from the book to support your responses.  Include the page numbers where the evidence is found.  Please NUMBER your responses as they are numbered on this paper.

 VOCABULARY DIRECTIONS:  Notice that each vocabulary word has and number at the end of the word.  This is the page number that the word is on.  After answering the questions for the chapter, write each vocabulary word, copy the sentence from the book that contains the word and write “your” definition using context clues.  Check the dictionary to see if your definition is accurate.  If not, copy the dictionary definition.

 Example:

irrigation – “Hadn’t he gotten up in the middle of the night to check the irrigation?”

Context Clues: I think this means grandfather is putting something on the crops because the other sentences in the paragraph talk about the crops.
