Nancy McCormick Ram Busch is credited with popularizing the method in the United States, where today there are over 400 Montessori schools. The method helps children learn for themselves by providing them with instructional materials and tasks that facilitate acts of discovery and manipulation. Through such exploration, children develop their sense of touch and learn how to do everyday tasks without adult assistance. Other benefits include improvement in language skills, and acquaintance with elements of science, music, and art. 1. What is the main purpose of this passage? A.

On the ghost of Chaffin’s second visit to his son, he told him that he would find a will in the overcoat pocket. The coat was actually in the possession of the third brother. B. In 1921, a certain James Chaffin died, leaving his entire fortune to his third son, Marshal, in a will which had been written a full fifteen years earlier, in 1905, and signed in front of witnesses. His wife and two other sons were virtually cut off without a penny. Marshal was not inclined to split up the inheritance he had come into any more fairly. C. Once it was found, they came across a note sewn in the lining of one of the pockets saying they should look in an old family Bible. This Bible was found in the keeping of Chaffin’s widow and examined in front of independent witnesses. Sure enough, there in the Bible they discovered a later version of the will, one which divided the property and money evenly between the widow and the three sons. The will appeared to be genuine and Marshal was not prepared to challenge it in court. D. Some people believe that the dead still keep in touch with us through our dreams. One of the most famous and extraordinary cases of contact with the dead was the so-called Chaffin Will affair. E. Four years went by and then, strangely, James Chaffin’s ghost started to appear before one of his other two sons. The apparition had on an old overcoat which had often worn in life.

  12. 12 About 20 minutes west of Quebec City in Canada, there’s a unique place – the only hotel in North America made entirely of ice and snow. We sent Sandy Russell to find out more… When I arrive, the outside temperature was – 28 o C! I thought, “Do I really want to sleep in a hotel made of ice?” But when I walked inside, I was amazed. It was warmer than outside – o about -4 C. This is because of the wallls – they’re 120 centimeters thick. And the hotel was absolutely wonderful! The floors and ceilings were ice. There were beautiful ice sculptures everywhere. There were also two art galleries, a movie theater, a skating rink, and a wedding chapel. Even the drinking glasses were made of ice. And in the rooms? Yes, even the beds were made of ice. I slept in a sleeping bag on a mattress, and the mattress was on top of deer skins. It was a lot of fun! They build the ice hotel every year in December, and you can stay there from January to April. In 2002, more than 50,000 people visited the hotel to look at it, and 3,000 guests stayed at least one night. Beaches, mountains, lakes, museums – boring!

Sometimes you know things about people the first time you see them, for example, that you want to be friends with them or that you don’t trust them. But perhaps this kind of intuition isn’t as hard to explain as it may seem. For instance, people give out body language signal all the time. The way you hold your body, head and arms tells people about your mood. If you hold your arms tightly at your sides, or fold them across your chest, people will generally feel that you are being defensive. Holding your head to one side shows interest in the others, while an easy, open posture indicates that you are self- confident. All this affects the way you feel about someone. Also, a stranger may remind you of a meeting with someone. This may be because of something as simple as the fact that he or she is physically similar to someone who treated you well or badly. Your feeling about a stranger could be influenced by a smell 12

The Secrets of a Very Long Life There are several places in the world that are famous for people who live a very long time. These places are usually in mountainous areas, far away from modern cities. Hunza, in the Himalayas, is where many people over 100 years of age are still in good physical health. Additionally, men of ninety and women of fifty still have babies. Scientists think that these people have these benefits: a healthful unpolluted environment with clean air and water; a simple diet high in vitamins, fiber, and nutrition, but low in fat, cholesterol, sugar, and unnatural chemicals; and physical work as well as other activities in the fields. The Caucasus Mountains in Russia are also famous for the longevity of its inhabitants – mostly farmers. One reason for the good health of the people might be regular exercise in the moderate climate: the temperature is about 70 Fahrenheit all year long. In addition, the water from mountain streams is high in minerals – a very valuable resource for people, vegetables, fruits, and wildlife. 1. Men over 80 years old in Hunza can be new fathers. 2. People in Hunza consume a lot of vitamins, fiber, fat, sugar, nutrition, etc. 3. It’s very cold in winter and hot in summer in the Caucasus Mountains. 4.
