Are Sports Bad for Kids?

Read the following passage and choose the best answers.




Are Sports Bad for Kids?

(B1.2 - Test 35)

People think children should play sports. Sports are fun, and children stay healthy while playing with others. However, playing sports can have negative effects on children. It may produce feelings of poor self-esteem or aggressive behavior in some children. According to research on kids and sports, 40 million kids play sports in the US. Of these, 18 million say they have been yelled at or called names while playing sports. This leaves many children with a bad impression of sports. They think sports are just too aggressive.

Many researchers believe adults, especially parents and coaches, are the main cause of too much aggression in children’s sports. They believe children copy aggressive adult behavior. This behavior is then further reinforced through both positive and negative feedback. Parents and coaches are powerful teachers because children usually look up to them. Often these adults behave aggressively themselves, sending children the message that winning is everything. At children’s sporting events, parents may yell insults at other players or cheer when their child behaves aggressively. As well, children may be taught that hurting other players is acceptable, or they may be pushed to continue playing even when they are injured. In addition, the media makes violence seem exciting. Children watch adult sports games and see violent behavior replayed over and over on television.

As a society, we really need to face up to this problem and do something about it. Parents and coaches should act as better examples for children. They also need to teach children better values. They should teach children to enjoy themselves whether they win or not. It is not necessary to knock yourself out to enjoy sports. Winning is not everything. In addition, children should not be allowed to continue to play when they are injured. Sending a child with an injury into a game gives the child the message that health is not as important as winning. If we make some basic changes, children might learn to enjoy sports again.


1. What is the main idea of the reading?
2. How many children said they had some negative experience when playing sports?
3. Which is described as the main cause of more aggressive playing?
4. What does the writer suggest?
5. What would probably NOT be done when “facing up to a problem”?

The Ring of Fire

Read the following passage and choose the best answers.




The Ring of Fire

(B1.2 - Test 34)

The Ring of Fire is an enormous chain of volcanoes all around the Pacific Ocean. The ring goes from New Zealand up to Asia and across the ocean to Alaska. From Alaska, the ring continues southward along the coast of both North and South America. More than seventy-five percent of the world’s volcanoes are located in this ring.

Scientists are interested in studying the Ring of Fire because they can observe plate tectonics at work there. In 1912, a German scientist, Alfred Wegener, came up with the first theory of land movement. Wegener said continents are made up of lighter rocks resting on heavier material. Similar to the way large things move while floating on water, Wegener suggested that the positions of the continents were not fixed, but that they moved slightly. Later, scientists discovered most of Wegener’s ideas were right on the mark. They then developed the theory called plate tectonics.

According to plate tectonics, the surface of the Earth consists of a number of enormous plates or sections of rock, each about eighty kilometers thick. The plates float and slowly move at speeds between one to ten centimeters every year. That is about the rate your fingernails grow! Within the Ring of Fire, new material for the Earth’s plates is constantly being created as hot liquid rock called magma flows from the center of the Earth up to the ocean floor. All the existing plates on the Earth’s surface have to move slightly to make room for the new material.

As plates move both away from and toward each other, they run into each other. When they hit each other, one plate might move under another. This process is called subduction. Subduction frequently causes earthquakes. It may also result in the bottom plate melting due to the extreme temperatures under the top plate. The magma created in this process can rise to the Earth’s surface and come out through volcanoes, as can be seen along the Ring of Fire.


1. What is the main focus of this reading?
2. According to the reading, which is true about the Ring of Fire?
3. What does “subduction” mean in this reading?
4. What is NOT a result of shifting tectonic plates?

Pirates: Romance and Reality

B1.2-Reading-Test 33
Read the following passage and choose the best answers.




Pirates: Romance and Reality

In many movies, a pirate's life is an exciting adventure. But what was life actually like for an 18th century pirate? And which parts of the movie pirate are real and which are invented?

A pirate's life
In reality, the average pirate was usually trying to escape from a difficult life. Somewhere ex-sailors who were treated poorly on their ships. Others were escaped slaves who wanted their freedom. They came from many different backgrounds. But on a pirate ship, equality was important. Men elected their captain and created the ship's rules together. The men also divided the income from stolen goods and they share these earnings fairly.

Pirate treasure
In popular culture, Pirates are often shown with chests full of gold. It is true they took money from others. However, it was far more common for pirates to steal things like spices and even medicine. Then they often sold these things. Of course, purchasing stolen goods from a pirate was illegal, but many people did it. Also, unlike movie pirates, real “pirates didn't bury their money,” says Cory Convertito, who works at a maritime museum in the U.S. They blew it as soon as they could on women and booze.

Pirate Style
Movie Pirates often wear eye patches and have wooden legs. In reality, many Pirates did look like this. Why? One factor was the poor living conditions. “Life at sea was hard and dangerous,” says David Moore, a maritime museum employee in the U.S. Disease was also common. For these reasons, some pirates lost eyes and legs. But many pirates did one thing for their health: they wore earrings just as in the movies. They believed putting weight on the ears stopped seasickness.


1. What is the main idea of this reading?
2. On many pirate ships, _____.
3. In the third paragraph, "They blew it" means "They _____ the money".
4. Which statement would David Moore probably agree with?
5. According to the passage, pirates believed wearing earrings _____.

Who built Giza's Pyramids

Read the following passage and choose the best answers.




B1.2-Reading-Test 32

For centuries, the Pyramids of Giza have been timeless symbols of Egyptian culture. But who actually built them? For years, we did not know for sure. But archaeologists recently discovered an ancient village near the pyramids. Close by there was also a cemetery where pyramid builders were buried. From studying these places, archaeologists can now confirm that the pyramids were not built by slaves or foreigners or space aliens. Ordinary Egyptians built them.

It took about 80 years to build the pyramids. According to archaeologists, about 20,000 to 30,000 people were involved in completing the task. The workers had different roles. Some dug up the rock, some moved it, and some shaped it into blocks. People also worked on different teams, each with its own name. On a wall in Khufu's Great Pyramid, for example, a group of workers wrote “Friends of Khufu”. Teams often competed to do a job faster.

Life for these workers was hard. “We can see that in their skeletons”, says Azza Mohammad Sarry El-Din, a scientist studying bodies found in the cemetery. The bones show signs of arthritis, which develops from carrying heavy things for a long time. Archaeologists have also found many female skeletons in the village and cemetery. The damage to their bones is similar to the men's. Their lives may have been even tougher. Male workers lived to age 42 - 45 but women to only 30 - 35. However, workers usually had enough food, and they also had medical care if they got sick or hurt.

The work was challenging, but the laborers are proud of their work. “It's because they were not just building the tomb of their King”, Egyptian archaeologist Zahi Hawass. “They were building Egypt. It was a national project, and everyone was a participant”.


1. The main purpose of this reading is to describe _____.
2. Which statement about the pyramid builders is true?
3. Which statement about building the pyramids is true?
4. In the third paragraph, what does the word their refer to?
5. In the last paragraph, what does the word laborers mean?

MEXICO’S PYRAMID OF THE MOON

A mysterious city
Teotihuacan was once one of the world's most important cities, but many things about it are still unknown today. How did the people live, and why did they abandon their City? For years, answers to some of these questions have been buried in the Pyramid of the Moon. Now, findings in this ancient structure are helping archeologists learn more about the Teotihuacan’s people and their culture.

Clues in the Pyramid
Until recently, many experts thought that Teotihuacan was a peaceful society, mostly ruled by gentle and wise leaders. But recent findings in the Pyramid of the Moon indicate something else. Archeologists discovered a number of headless bodies. Most were foreigners. Many had their hands tied and were buried alive, along with animals, weapons and other objects of power. Apparently the people in objects found inside the pyramid were offerings to the gods.

However the findings in the pyramid are difficult to interpret. “These findings are like sentences” says archeologist Leonardo Lopez Lujan, “but we don't have all the words so they're hard to read”. Despite these problems, several archeologists have concluded this: Teotihuacan was not a society governed by peaceful rulers. “In reality, officials used human sacrifice”, says archeologist Saburo Sugiyama, “to control the people.” The city probably also had a powerful army.

The Search Goes On
Who were the city’s leaders? Scientists don't know. They have not found a king buried in the pyramid of any statues of Teotihuacan’s rulers. But archeologists continue to search for them. They hope to learn more about the pyramid’s creators and one of the world's most powerful ancient cities.


1. What is the reading mainly about?
2. In paragraph 2, what does the word clues mean?
3. Whats have NOT been found in the Pyramid of the Moon?
4. In paragraph 3, an archeologist says, “These findings are like sentences, but we don't have all the words so they're hard to read”.. What does he mean?

THE MIRACLE OF SILK

Silk. The word itself is beautiful. The story of silk starts in China over 4,000 years ago. One Legend says a silkworm cocoon fell into a woman’s teacup. It then opened into a single unbroken thread. This was an important Discovery. The Chinese learned they could use the cocoon to make cloth that was both beautiful to look at and soft to touch.

Making silk was a protected secret in China for many years. In other countries, silk was very rare and valuable. Often it was worth more than gold. Legend tells us that the secret finally got out when a princess left China to go to India in her hair, she secretly carried many silkworms.

By the year 1 A.D., silk was sold as far west as Rome, and all along the Silk Road, which connected China with places in the Middle East and the Mediterranean. Eventually, around the year 300, silk also traveled from China to Japan. Centuries later, in 1522, the Spanish brought silkworms to Mexico.

Nowadays people around the world still make many beautiful things from silk. But silk isn't only beautiful. It looks delicate but it's actually very strong. For example, it has been used to make bicycle tires. And some doctors even use silk threads in hospital operations. Silk is also lightweight and warm. This makes it great for clothes like winter jackets, pants and boots.

All of this from a little insect - the silkworm. That is the miracle of silk.

TORNADO CHASERS

In the U.S., tornadoes are responsible for 80 deaths and more than 1,500 injuries each year. Although they occur quite frequently, tornadoes are difficult to predict. Why? Tornadoes develop from storms, but only some storms have the potential to become tornadoes. Meteorologists don't know where and when a storm will touch the ground and turn into a tornado. Today, the warning time for a tornado is usually just 13 minutes.

Tim Samaras is a storm chaser. His job is to find tornadoes and follow them. When he gets close to a tornado, he puts a special tool called a turtle probe on the ground. This tool measures things like a twister’s temperature, humidity and wind speed. With this information, Samaras can learn what causes tornadoes to develop. If meteorologists understand this, they can warn people about twisters sooner and save lives.

How does Samaras hunt tornadoes? It’s not easy. First, he has to find one. Tornados are too small to see using weather satellites. So Samaras can’t rely on these tools to find a twister. Instead he waits for tornadoes to develop. Every May and June, Samaras drives about 40,000 kilometers (25,000 miles) across an area known as Tornado Alley, looking and hoping to spot a twister.

Once Samaras sees a tornado, the chase begins. But a tornado is hard to follow. Some tornadoes change direction several times - for example, moving east and then west and then east again. When Samaras finally gets near a tornado, he puts the turtle probe on the ground. Being this close to a twister is terrifying. Debris is flying in the air. The wind is blowing at high speed. He must get away quickly.

The work is risky, even for a skilled chaser like Samaras. But danger won’t stop his hunt for the perfect storm.


1. This reading is mainly about a man who _____.
2. Which statement about tornadoes is true?
3. A turtle probe _____ tornadoes.
4. What is paragraph 3 mainly about?
5. In paragraph 3, what does the word spot mean?
