HEAT TRANSFER
Heat travels from a hot object to a cold object. It travels either by conduction,
convection or radiation. If you walk barefooted on a cold floor, you would think that
you can feel the cold floor because it feels as if the cold is going up your legs, but in
act:ual fact, you are losing heat.
We lose heat through our extremities and that is why, if you are in a cold country
you have to keep your head, hands and feet warrn so you don't feel cold, otherwise
you would be losing body heat!
5 Heat travels from one object to another through the following ways except
A rotation
B radiation
C convection
D conduction
6 How do you keep your body warm?
A Wear gloves.
B Coveryourhead.
C Put on your socks.

Questions

o o
A sparrow is a very small bird found throughout the world. There
are many different species of sparrows. There are about fifty different
species of sparrows living in North and South America. Sparrows are
only about four to six inches in length. Many people appreciate their
beautiful song.
Sparrows prefer to build their nests in low places. Their nests are
usually built on the ground, clumps of grass, low trees, and low bushes.
In cities, they build their nests in building nooks and other holes. They
rarely build their nests in high places. Sparrows build their nests out of
twigs, grass, and plant fibers. Their nests are usually small and well-built
structures.
Female sparrows lay four to six eggs at a time. The eggs are
white with reddish brown spots. The eggs hatch within eleven to fourteen
days. Both the male and female parents care for the young. Insects are fed
to their young after hatching. Young sparrows are ready to leave the nest
eight to ten days after hatching. The large feet of the spalrow are used for
scratching seeds. Adult sparrows mainly eat seeds.
Sparrows can be found almost anywhere there are humans. Some
species of sparrows prefer to live in deserts, prairies, swamps, marshes,
forests, and other bushy areas. Some sparrows in northern North America
will migrate south in winter, although most stay in one area year-round.
The older adult males of the migrating sparrows usually spend their
winters near their breeding area. Many people throughout the world
enjoy these delightful birds.
