Sequence Paragraph

       There is much preparation to be done before hunting season arrives. First, hunters must obtain their deer or elk tags from the Department of Wildlife which allows them to legally kill these animals. Then they must consult their calendars, ask for time off of work, request assignments from teachers like Ms. D, and determine where they will go to hunt. Finally, because big game live in the wilderness, sportsmen must prepare to keep warm during many days outside by gathering their warm coats, woolen socks, hats and gloves. To most hunters, thankfully, the groundwork is just as exciting as the hunt itself!

The Life of a Star
     The life and death of a star begins somewhere in space. Astronomers claim that a star begins as a cloud of hydrogen and helium. As the cloud moves about it collects bits of dust and more floating gases. Then the cloud begins to warm as more dust and gases are pulled into it. After a long period of time as the cloud becomes denser, heat and friction cause the atoms to explode. That is how a star is born. The star will burn for about ten billion years as it radiates heat and energy. When the hydrogen begins to burn out the star becomes even larger. At this stage, it gives off a lot of light but not much energy. The star may continue to burn brightly but dies when it runs out of hydrogen. This is the life cycle of a star.
