Big Groups, Little Groups
By Jane Runyon
  

1     "Today we are going to study plants and animals," announced Mrs. Kim.
 
2     "All of them?" asked Jordan.
 
3     "Why not all of them?" asked Mrs. Kim.
 
4     "Well, for one thing," said Molly, "there are lots and lots of animals and lots and lots of plants. I don't think we can talk about all of them."
 
5     "That is a big problem," said Mrs. Kim. "I wonder how we could make it a smaller problem."
 
6     "I know! I know!" shouted Matthew. "We could break up the class into smaller groups, and each group could study different plants and animals."
 
7     "There's a good idea," said Mrs. Kim. "How shall we split up the class?"
 
8     "We could have the part of the class whose last names begin with A-M study plants and the part whose last names begin with N-Z study animals," suggested C.J.
 
9     "Or we could have the boys study plants and the girls study animals," added Maddie.
