1     "Class, we're going outside today," Mrs. Davis announced.
2     "Yay! Thank you, Mrs. Davis!" the class cheered.
3     Mrs. Davis took the class outside the school to the deserted playground. "You may go play," she told them with a smile.
4     After about ten minutes, students began returning to where Mrs. Davis waited in the shade of a large tree. "It's hot out here," Kevin complained.
5     The group of students gathered around agreed with Kevin. "Yeah, it's too hot out here, Mrs. Davis."
6     "Well, how would you like something nice and cold to drink?" asked Mrs. Davis.
7     "Yeah!" the class shouted enthusiastically.
8     Mrs. Davis turned around and waved her arm to someone out in the parking lot. A pickup started its engine and drove over to Mrs. Davis and her class. "Hi, kids," the driver said, getting out of the truck.
9     "Hi, Mr. Davis," said Kevin. "Did you bring us something to drink?"
