    Q. Thousands of years ago the native people of North America had to build houses that fit their life. One kind of house was a teepee. The Plains people lived in teepees. Teepees were easy to put up and take down. In fact, it only took about half an hour to build a teepee. This was perfect for the Plains people who spent their time hunting and hunting animal.   The Inuit, who lived in the cold Arctic region, spent part of the year living in Igloos. Igloos were temporary homes like teepees. However, they were built for the cold winter months whereas a teepee could be used year round. Both teepees and igloos had one main room that the family lived in and were usually made for a single family. Teepees and igloos were made of very different materials. Igloos were made from blocks of snow stacked on top of each other, while teepes were made of buffalo hide, tree branches or grass. The shape of teepees and igloos were also different.

    Q. Crocodiles and alligators are large, frightful-looking reptiles. They are classified as reptiles because they have tough, scaly skin and are cold-blooded. This means their body temperatures become warmer as the air temperature rises and colder as the air temperature falls.  Both crocodiles and alligators bury their eggs in sand or mud until their babies hatch. Very young crocodiles and alligators eat worms and insects. Adults eat mammals and are even known to attack humans.  Crocodiles and alligators swim by sweeping their tails from side to side in the water. Because they need air to breathe, the tips of their noses and their eyes can always be seen outside of the water.   How can you tell a crocodile apart from an alligator?  The main difference is that a crocodile has a narrow snout that comes to a point at the tip, and the fourth lower tooth is always visible even when the crocodile's mouth is closed. An alligator, on the other hand, has a broad, blunt snout. Its fourth lower tooth cannot be seen when the alligator's mouth is closed.  Another difference between crocodiles and alligators is their habitat. Crocodiles are found near swamps, lakes and rivers in the tropical areas of Africa, Australia, Asia, Madagascar, and South America. Alligators are only found in two freshwater locations: The American Alligator can be found in the southeastern United States from North Carolina to Florida and west to Texas. The Chinese Alligator lives in the Yangtze River Valley in China.  In addition, alligators are less aggressive and move more slowly than crocodiles. They are also not as large. Crocodiles are known to have grown as long as 23 feet. Alligators grow to be about 15 feet long.
    How do crocodiles and alligators look different?
    answer choices
    Crocodiles swim by moving their tail from side to side, and alligators keep their tails still.
     An alligator’s fourth lower tooth is always visible.
    Crocodiles have narrow snouts, but alligators have broad snouts.
