According to both text fire

According to both text fire is important to humans because they can use fire in different kinds of ways. They can use it for food, warmth, and light and more. Fire is also important to humans because without fire how would we eat, we need fire to eat. For example if we don't have fire we wouldn't be able to see in the dark. As a human I had to use fire to do things. Like for example when my power went out I had to use fire fo9r warmth, food, and light. that day was cool because I got to hold a candle, It was weird because I get to use the oven but not hold a candle. Anyway I had to use fire to do things.

Alexandra,Your introduction

Alexandra,

Your introduction sentences are very effective! It tells the reader what you are going to say! Great job!  Also you used some evidence based terms such as "For example" and "According to the text."

You used a few examples from your personal experiences which is great. However, I do not see evidence from the article or the drama. Without evidence, your response loses strength.

Humans use fire to cook and

Humans use fire to cook and keep them selves that's why fire is important to humans. When its winter and its very cold people would open the stove in their house. In the article it said that fire can keep people warm. Or if people go camping they would build a fire to keep warm. Humans can cook any food on the stove and people need to survive. You can cook and be warm with fire that is fires two powers. That's why fire is important to humans.
