Jonas is learning about things that dont exist and happen in his community. The first thing 'The Giver' showed Jonas was snow. Jonas didnt know what snow was because it doesnt snow in his community so hes never seen it before. He was surprised and saw snowflakes falling from the sky. He was very cheerful and excited when he slid down the hill because he has never experienced that before. Then Jonas experienced sunburn. Jonas was experiencing pain when the giver showed Jonas sunshine and sunburn.
