Kids' Corner

Marvin has been continuing his research in the library and he has some more amazing facts for you. Here are some names that we use to describe a group of animals.
Bears: a sleuth of bears Birds: a flight of birds
Cats: a chowder or clutter of cats Cattle: a drove of cattle
Crows: a murder of crows Foxes: a skulk of foxes
Geese: a flock or gaggle of geese Hares: a down of hares
Kangaroos: a mob or troop of kangaroos
Leopards: a leap of leopards Rhinoceroses; a crash of rhinoceroses

Maybe you can ask your friends and family if they know the unusual names for all these groups of animals. If you have some interesting facts then send them to Marvin. He would really like that. You can send your letters to:

This week we hove a poem by Boss who is in grade 6.


Our world is very hot
Very hot
Very hot
Our world is very hot
Stop the pollution.

Our ocean is very fetid

Very rotten
Very putrid
Our ocean is very smelly
Stop the pollution.

Our air is awfully raze

Awfully ruin
Awfully wreck
Our air is awfully level
Stop the pollution.

Our world is burning up

Itís aflame
Itís ablaze
Our world is fiery
Stop the pollution.

Bye from Marg and Marvin
