Standardized Test Skill Builders for Reading: Running From Danger

Does a frightened ostrich really hide its head in the sand? No, this ides is erroneous. No one has ever seen an ostrich with its head in the sand. But a frightened ostrich is likely to crouch and stretch its neck out along the gound. From this position, the ostrich can watch whatever frightens it. If the danger comes closer, the ostrich runs away. Since an ostrich can run as fast as 50 miles an hour, its chances of escaping are very good.
