Test 2

The professor explains two types of feathers loons have to keep them warm and dry in winter.
The outer feathers give colors and shapes of loons and function as keeping the inner feathers and the skin dry as they repel water. They also function as a diver’s suit when loons dive into water to catch fish.
The inner feathers are called down feathers. They are soft and fluffy and function as thermal insulator to keep the loons warm.

Test 3
The professor explains two types of human immune systems to protect our bodies from pathogens.
The inner immune systems include our skin and mucus. The skin provides a shell to stop pathogens entering our bodies. The mucus covers our respiratory system from throat to lung and trap pathogens.
The outer immune systems include white cells that find and kill pathogens. The digestive track also kill pathogens by using acids and bacteria.

There are two parts to the human immune system.

Test 4
The professor explains two ways animal change their fur according to seasons.
First, bears, rabbits, and cats have thick layer of fur during winter to survive in cold climate. In summer, they shed fur to prevent overheating. As winter approaches, they grow thick fur again.
Second, rabbits change the color of fur to escape from predators. In summer, the fur is brown to blend in woods. In winter, the fur changes to white to blend in snow, so that predators cannot spot them easily.

Yet in places further south where the seasons and weather conditions differ, the fur of many animals changes in response to the varying conditions.
Animals rid themselves of extra fur which could cause their bodies to overheat in hot summer conditions. Rid A of B.
This lets them more easily camouflage themselves in the snow.
-----------------------------------------------------
Test 5
The professor explains two types of playing by children.
The fist one is associative play. Children play freely without rules and goals. All ages of children play in this way once they develop motor and cognitive skills. For example, two children in a sand box with some toys play freely as they please and do whatever comes to mind.
The second type is called cooperative play. Children play together to achieve a goal under some rules. They learn how to cooperate and interact with other kids. Children above age two perform this kind of play.

Children do as they please and do anything that their imaginations come up with.
Doing whatever comes to mind.
Sports and board games are prime examples of activities that involve cooperative play.
