Wendy's World- Natural Resources
By Jane Runyon

1     Wendy looked puzzled. Tim and Tess knew she needed help. Wendy's class was doing a project. Wendy was pretending to be a pioneer. She had to find a good spot to start a new settlement.
2     "My teacher told us to think about what a town needs," Wendy told the twins. "I'm not sure what I'm looking for."
3     "You need a place to live," suggested Tim.
4     "There won't be any houses in a new place," said Wendy.
5     "What could you use to build houses?" asked Tess.
6     "Well, if there are trees, we can build cabins," answered Wendy. "Let's look for a place with trees."
7     "Won't you need water to drink?" asked Tim.
8     "Oh, yes," said Wendy. "If I build my town near a river, I will have lots of drinking water. That would also give me a place for boats."
9     "Why do you need boats?" asked Tess.
