Comparing Plants and Animals
By Jane Runyon
  

1     It was time for science class in Mrs. Kim's room. The children were in their seats and ready. They looked at a table at the front of the classroom. On the table were several items. There was an ivy plant, a stuffed toy dog, a fishbowl with two goldfish, and a picture of a rose.
 
2     "Have you looked at all the items?" asked Mrs. Kim.
 
3     The children looked at their teacher. She was standing in front of a dry erase board. On the board she had drawn two circles. The circles overlapped so that they made three different areas.
 
4     "What are these things for?" asked Marty.
 
5     "We are going to discuss these items," answered Mrs. Kim. "What can you tell me about them?"
 
6     "The items are all different," answered Mike.
 
7     "Yes, they are different," said Mrs. Kim. "But how are they all different?"
 
8     "Well," answered Matt, "some are real and some are fake. The ivy plant is real and the picture of the rose is a fake plant."
 
9     "That's very interesting," said Mrs. Kim. "Isn't this the picture of a real rose?"
