Jackson had been playing football the previous three days and he always left his football in the same part of the yard, in the grass where he could find it. This morning, he woke up to find his father making a fire in the fireplace. He opened the local newspaper and his eyes darted to the headline, “All schools closed!” Well Jackson screamed in delight! No school! Oh boy! He ran outside to get his ball and exclaimed in disappointment, “Oh no!” As he realized that he would not find his ball.
Why could Jackson not find his ball?
