Example Question #1 : Ask And Answer Questions About Unknown Words In A Text: Ccss.Ela Literacy.Rl.K.4

Adapted from Mother Goose in Prose by L. Frank Baum (1897)

The Black Sheep by L. Frank Baum

Baa, baa, black sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes, sir, yes, sir,
Three bags full;
One for my master,
And one for my dame,
and one for the little boy
Who lives down the lane.

What is wool? 

Possible Answers:

Hair from a sheep

A bag

A house

A house on a lane

Correct answer:

Hair from a sheep

Explanation:

Wool is hair from a sheep. We can infer this from the poem because the man is asking the sheep for the wool. Based on our other answer choices, "Hair from a sheep" makes the most sense. Wool is not a bag or a house. A bag is something you carry full of things and a house is something we live in.
