Homework Help: Reading

Posted by Alex on Thursday, January 5, 2012 at 5:18pm.

When you're scribbling a note with a pencil, do you ever wonder what this handy tool is made from? To get right to the point, a pencil is made of a number of materials. The inside is made of graphite that is reinforced with clay. Its wooden outside comes from cedar trees. The yellow paint on the wood is made from minerals, while the metal band at one end is aluminum. Should you make a mistake while writing,use the eraser. Its main materials are soybean oil and latex.

I have to find 6 details from the passage that tells about the topic.

1. Made of graphite with clay
2. The yellow paint on wood is made from materials
3. Metal band is aluminum
4. Main materials are soybean oil and latex
5. Made of a number of materials
