1 READING COMPREHENSION I SIR ISAAC NEWTON Sir Isaac Newton ( ) was an English scientist who made great contributions to physics, optics, maths and astronomy. He is known for his Three Laws of Motion and the Universal Law of Gravitation. When Sir Isaac Newton was a boy, he was more interested in making mechanical devices than in studying. He made a windmill which could grind wheat and corn, and he made a water clock and a sundial. His teachers thought he was not a very intelligent student because he didn t do very well. He wanted to go to college, but he didn't have the money to go, so at university, he had to serve the other students by doing chores for them. He even ate the leftovers of their meals, but he would do anything to get an opportunity to learn. Even when he was in college, he was not outstanding and received no awards. When the university shut down because of the plague, an illness where people caught diseases and died suddenly, he went home and continued to study on his own.

2 He had a notebook with blank pages and he began to fill them with notes as he read and experimented about different things around him. One day when he was drinking tea in the garden, he saw an apple fall to the ground. He started thinking about why it fell. Why did the apple fall out of the tree? Does everything fall? What makes things fall? Can anything stop things from falling? Are the sun, moon, and stars falling? Why don't they ever fall to the ground? He finally decided that a force called gravity, which caused the apple to fall also kept the moon in the sky around the earth. This same force called gravity, also kept the planets in the sky around the sun. The apple incident led to his three basic laws of motion: A moving object keeps moving unless an outside force stops it. An object moves in a straight line unless some force makes it change direction; and For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Isaac Newton is well known as one of the greatest scientists who ever lived.

3 Comprehension Questions: 1. What are the Laws Newton is famous for? 2. What was Isaac Newton interested in when he was a young boy? 3. Can you name three things he made when he was young? 4. What did Newton have to do at university so he could study? 5. Why did Isaac Newton s university close?

4 6. What did Newton do when his university closed? 7. What did Newton do with his blank notebook? 8. What did Isaac Newton discover when he observed the falling apple? 9. Can you name the three Laws of Motion? 10. Can you give an example to explain one of Newton s law of motion?

5 READING COMPREHENSION II Greenhouse Effect & Global Warming Greenhouse gases naturally blanket the Earth and keep it warmer than it would be without these gases in the atmosphere. On Earth, the most abundant greenhouse gases are water vapour, carbon dioxide (CO2), methane, nitrous oxide, ozone and CFCs. The extra carbon dioxide gas we are adding to the atmosphere is mostly from burning large amounts of fossil fuels for energy production and transport. These gases trap the heat inside the Earth s atmosphere, causing the global temperature to increase and making the world's climate change. The greenhouse effect caused by burning fossil fuels such as coal, gas and oil and clearing forests have dramatically increased the amount of carbon dioxide in the Earth s atmosphere. The temperatures are rising. We re already seeing changes. Glaciers are melting, plants and animals are being forced from their habitat. The number of severe storms and droughts is increasing. Heat waves will be more frequent and more intense. Droughts and wildfires will occur more often. The Arctic Ocean could be ice free in summer by 2050.

6 Comprehension Questions: 1. Name four greenhouse gases. 2. How do the greenhouse gases on Earth cause global warming? 3. What started the greenhouse effect? 4. Can you name five effect of global warming? 5. What will happen to the Arctic Ocean in 2050?

### The atmosphere has a number of gases, often in tiny amounts, which trap the heat given out by the Earth.

The Earth is wrapped in a blanket of air called the atmosphere, which is made up of several layers of gases. The sun is much hotter than the Earth and it gives off rays of heat (radiation) that travel
