8 1 Maple Syrup Buckets by Ralph Fletcher 1 At the edge of Mr. Wells s woods I count eighteen rusty buckets hanging from maple trees. In these parts it s a known fact 5 that Mr. Wells has never smiled in fact hardly speaks at all though he once explained to me why it takes forty gallons of sap to make a single gallon of syrup 10 which made me wonder if maybe he requires forty hours of silence to make a single hour of talk. He keeps bees, too: succulent honey. Strange that such a sour man should 15 produce all that sweetness. ITEM SAMPLER MAY BE DUPLICATED. 8

16 Potato Chip Mystery by Leslie Simpkins 1 Potato chips are a favorite snack in the United States. Every year, over six billion dollars worth of potato chips are sold. But how did the potato chip get its start? 2 In 1853, the potato chip was invented in Saratoga Springs, New York, at Moon s Lake House, a fancy restaurant. That much is clear. However, there are two different stories about who invented the potato chip. 2 3 According to one local legend, the potato chip was invented by George Speck, also known as George Crum. George worked as a chef at Moon s Lake House. One day, a customer sent his order of French fries back to the kitchen, saying that the fries were too thick. George was an ornery man, and he wanted to play a trick on the customer for complaining. George sliced the French fries so they were paper thin, and then he fried them in boiling oil so they were thin and crisp. The customer loved the delicious, crunchy potatoes. 10. Which detail from the article supports that potato chips are a favorite snack in the United States? A. Potato chips were first served in Saratoga Springs. B. Six billion dollars worth of potato chips are sold each year. C. Potato chips were invented in In paragraph 3, which word is a synonym for ornery? A. Irritable B. Wild C. Dependable ITEM SAMPLER MAY BE DUPLICATED. 16

17 12. What was a surprise to George? A. The restaurant ran out of potatoes. B. The potatoes were as thin as paper. C. The customer liked the crisp potatoes. 4 The second local legend says that the potato chip was invented by Kate Speck Wicks, who was George s sister and worked with him in the kitchen at Moon s Lake House. One day, while Kate was cutting potatoes, she accidentally dropped one of the thin pieces of potato into a pan of hot oil that was meant for frying doughnuts. George took out the piece of potato and tasted it. He liked it, and the discovery was put on the menu as crispy Saratoga Chips How did George and Kate know each other? A. They were brother and sister. B. They went to the same cooking school. C. They invented doughnuts together. 14. Based on the local legend about Kate Wicks, how did she discover the potato chip? A. She heard a story. B. She saw it on a menu. C. She made a mistake. 5 No matter who invented the potato chip, George or Kate, the two stories come together at Moon s Lake House, where potato chips became a regular item on the menu. Potato chips were soon served at restaurants all around the Saratoga Springs area. Eventually, potato chips spread to restaurants across the country. ITEM SAMPLER MAY BE DUPLICATED. 17

18 6 The identity of the inventor of the potato chip remains a mystery.
