The Crazy Camping Trip

The twins Alex and Alexa love to go camping.  So, one sunny morning they packed up campingtheir camping equipment and they left to go to the forest.

Alex and Alexa set up the trailer and then they decided to go on a hike in the woods.

They got their backpacks and put in some granola bars, marshmallows, takis and water. Next, they got their walking sticks and headed to the mountain. When they got there, they gasped because the sign at the bottom of the mountain said the mountain was 20,000 feet tall!

Alex and Alexa started walking up the mountain. They trudged up the path and stopped when they heard a voice. They looked around and saw a talking squirrel.

Don’t Touch THIS Turkey Because…

Once again we interviewed some turkeys as we approach the Thanksgiving holiday. Here is what they told us. They did not seem very excited about the upcoming holiday.

I am super wild and I am super fast and you will not cook me. I will hop, run and skip. You cannot catch up to me so you could not cook me. You will get tired in a minute. Your turkey-not-alegs will say, ” AAAAAAAAAH!”

I am tricky because I will pretend that I am reading, but then I will scare you. You will panic a lot. I am also aggressive, I can hit you really hard. So don’t even think about getting a hand on me!

I am tricky so I am going to put you in the fire because you want to eat me for din-din. (SO STOP IT!) You are not nice to me. You are the most evil person in the world, so don’t pick me.

I have venom and I will spray you with my venom and you will die. I am also wild and I will peck you with my beak. Since I am wild you do not want to pick me.

I might defend myself by pecking you. I might get very agitated and wiggle and turkey eat beefaccidentally knock you into the pond. So you don’t want to pick me.

There are three kinds of coral reefs. They are barrier reefs, atolls and fringing reefs. Coal, oil and gas can harm coral reefs. When the water gets warmer, the reefs also get sick.

Allergy Dogs

The allergy dogs use their sense of smell to warn its owner that the food has peanuts or milk if the person is allergic to them. If the scent is too old or the food is in a container, that blocks the odor, then the dog might miss it.
