    What is the effect of the personification in the following lines written by John Muir? "As long as I live, I'll interpret the rocks, learn the language of flood, storm, and the avalanche. I'll acquaint myself with the glaciers and wild gardens, and get as near the heart of the world as I can." It communicates appreciation and love of nature. It shows how much the author knows about nature. It inspires fear of the power of the natural world. It shows how determined the author is to protect nature.

    What is the effect of the figurative language in the following quote from 12-year old Severn Suzuki in a speech to The Environmental Children's Organization? "I'm only a child yet I know we are all part of a family, five billion strong, in fact, 30 million species strong and we all share the same air, water and soil." It describes the things that humans do to harm the Earth. It shows how people, animals, and the earth are all connected. It shows exactly how many different species are living on Earth. It creates an image of a family with a child who loves nature.

    Match each example of figurative language with its interpretation. Match Term Definition “He watches from his mountain walls, And like a thunderbolt he falls.” A) These lines use a simile to show the power of nature. “As long as I live, I'll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing. I'll interpret the rocks, learn the language of flood, storm, and the avalanche.” B) These lines give human abilities such as singing and language to nature. “I'm only a child yet I know we are all part of a family, five billion strong, in fact, 30 million species strong and we all share the same air, water and soil.” C) These lines contain a hyperbole that creates a vivid image. “I have seen flocks streaming south in the fall so large that they were flowing over from horizon to horizon in an almost continuous stream all day long.” D) The passage of prose contains a metaphor that shows how we are all connected. “O if we but knew what we do When we delve or hew—Hack and rack the growing green!” E) These lines contain alliteration, which creates rhythm.

    Read the following passage written by a teen hero: I want to be a vocal advocate for nature. I reject the idea that I am too young to make a difference. I recently helped a group with a river cleanup. I was mortified to see the destruction of animals and plants. When I got home, I composed a letter to my state politicians and asked them to allocate more money to the local river cleanup effort. I believe my vocation is to help citizens see that we are at a junction. We can decide to subject nature to abuse, or we can decide to be a benefactor to nature. I won't let obstacles detract from my mission. The prefix and root in the word "reject" as they are used in sentence 2 give us an approximate definition. Which of the following definitions is accurate? To pull toward To throw away To resist the pull To throw toward
