UNIT 7 Enjoy Your Hobby
Lesson 54: Show and Tell!
THINK ABOUT IT!Do you know a lot about your family history?
Who is the most interesting person in your family?
What is Danny's hobby?
Today, all of the students are showing their hobbies to the class.
Brian shows his stamp collection.
He has four books full of stamps!
Some of them are very old.
Two other students also show their stamp collections.
The teacher tells them that they might organize a stamp collecting club!
That would be an enjoyable hobby!
Another boy shows his collection of sports cards.
He likes to trade the cards with other teenagers.
Finally, it's Danny's turn.
"My hobby is in a big box in the parking lot," says Danny.
"Would someone help me bring it in?"
The teacher and three students go to help Danny.
But the box is too tall!
It won't go through the door.
One student says, "Let's put the box on its side, Danny.
Then it will go through the door."
"We can't," says Danny. "See the sign I put on the box?"
FRAGILE THIS SIDE UP!
"Okay," says the teacher. "Let's ask the class to come to the parking lot.
Get your hobby out of the box, Danny. Hurry!"
When the teacher comes back with the class, Danny is ready.
It's my family tree!
I know about everyone in my family.
"Many people enjoy learning about their family trees.
But most people draw their family trees.
They don't plant them!" says the teacher.
"I have two hobbies," says Danny.
"I like to learn about my family, and I like to garden!"
LET'S DO IT!
In Lesson 50, Danny's grandmother wrote his a letter about his Great Great Grandpa Rex.
But she didn't talk about Danny's great great grandmother.
Imagine what his great great grandma was like.
Share your ideas with a partner, then write a letter to Danny talking about her.
