Go through Part - I carefully, and make a list of a many words as you can find that indicate movement of different kinds.

(There is one word that occurs repeatedly - count how many times!) Put them into three categories.

fast movement ,slow movement ,neither slow nor fast

Can you explain why there are many words in one column and not in the others?

Earthquake Floating Walking
Rushed Recede  
Tremors    
Swept    
Ran    
Fell    
Climb    

The'fast movement' column has many more words as compared to the other two columns. This is because the story is about tsunami, which is a fast movement of waters. Due to tsunami, all the immediate actions are fast, such as running, climbing and sweeping away of people by water.
