Internal Text Structures
Goosebumps make me shiver. I get little bumps on my skin. They look like sesame seeds.
What happens to people when they shiver? They get goosebumps.
Goosebumps make me shiver. First I get cold. Then I shake all over.
Goosebumps make me shiver. I get them when I am cold. Some peopleget them from fear. Others get goosebumps when they are touched emotionally.
Goosebumps make me shiver. But they disappear as soon as I wrapmyself in something warm.
Goosebumps make me shiver. When the temperature drops below 45 degrees, my skin crinkles into goosebumps.
Adapted from Harvey, 2003)
