Stop and Jots:
1. If you were about to read a book about about an astronaut who went to Venus, what are three or more things you might think about before reading that would activate your schema?
2. If the book said, "The astronaut's helmet began to melt..." what would you imagine the cause was? Why would his or her helmet be melting? Use your schema to answer this question.
1. I would think it would be a cool book. I would infer they made a new kind of astronaut suit because it is hot on Venus. Venus is the second planet from the sun. It is very hot because of the thick layer of clouds.
2. I would assume the helmet would be melting because it was too hot on Venus. Or an alien was melting it with his powers if it was a fun silly illustrated book.
