Wendy was playing in her front yard. She saw her friends Tess and Tim walk out their front door. "Hey," she yelled. "Do you want to play soccer?"
"We can't," Tim yelled back. "I have to write a report for school. We are going to the library. Would you like to come along?"
"Just let me tell my mom where I'm going," Wendy answered. "I'll be right back."
As they walked, Tim told Wendy, "I have to give a report in class. I have to tell them about the Miami Indians. I need to find out where they lived. I need to find out how they lived. I need to find out what kind of houses they had."

"I'll help, too," added Wendy. "Three is better than two."
