|Trunk and Branch.
Tree. Trees are very important as they help get rid of the bad gas in the air and produce oxygen which we that we need.
Trees also provide homes for birds and other animals.
Elephants have trunks but no branches. Did you know that elephants' trunks have no bones and are very sensitive? So if you are lucky enough to touch an elephant be very gentle with his trunk.
|Yellow flower and Spring bulb.
Daffodil. A bulb is the resting, or sleeping, stage of some plants.
Daffodil bulbs are planted in the autumn and by spring have woken up and grown into beautiful yellow trumpet shaped flowers.
Did you know that the daffodil is the national flower of a country called Wales (part of the U.K)?
|Honey and Comb.|
Bee. Honey bees usually live in hives and collect nectar from flowers to produce honey combs. This is where the honey in jars comes from and I think it is delicious!
Did you know that when a bee finds a good place for nectar, it returns to the hive and does a little dance to let his bee friends know where to find it?
|Wheels and Steering wheel.|
Car (Automobile). It would be very difficult to drive your car without wheels and a steering wheel!
Rowing boats have oars which you use to propel (move) the boat through the water.
A Big Dipper can be another name for a Roller-coaster at a fairground. Did you know that it is also a name for for the seven brightest stars in the constellation of Ursa Major? Look up at the night night and you may see it.
Hula hoops are either a toy you use to twirl around your waist or a crisp (chip) type snack food.
|Garden bird and Redbreast.|
Robin. Both the male and the female European robin have red breast feathers and are mostly seen in the winter.
The American and the Australian robins are not the same family as the European robin. But "robin" has become a popular common name for garden birds with redbreasts.
|Pawns and Knights.|
Chess. Pawns and knights are two of the playing pieces in chess, which is a board game played by two people.
It's believed that the game originally came from India and/or Persia at least nine centuries ago.
Unlike Monopoly, Rummy and Sorry, which all contain a certain element of chance, chess is all skill. I don't win very often. :(
|Page and Chapter.|
Book. Books can be fun, thrilling and informative. So can the internet, but is it as much fun as curling up in a chair or bed and reading your favourite book or a new one?
When I was a little boy we didn't have the internet. Two of my favourite books were "Winnie-The-Pooh" and "The Wind in The Willows".
|Garlic, Quiche Lorraine and Paris.|
France. Paris is the capital city of France and the French are famous for eating garlic, which can give you smelly breath but is also very good for you.
Lorraine is a region in France famous for creating a savoury pastry dish filled with eggs, cream, bacon and onions. Cheese is usually included but not in the original recipe.
|Tadpole and Spawn.|
Frog. Frogs lay their eggs in a jelly like substance, called frog spawn, in ponds.
After five weeks or so the spawn develop into tadpoles. If you've seen one you'll know that they have little black heads and a long tail. A few weeks later the tadpole develops legs and breathing gills. Finally they develop into little frogs and are able to breathe out of the water.
Did you know that a frog is what's known as an amphibian? Their young can only survive in the water but the adults can breathe air too.
|Donald, Huey, Dewey and Louie.|
Duck. Donald duck's birthday is June 9th, 1934 so he's getting on a bit! This animated duck was created by The Walt Disney Company.
In 1938 Donald's nephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie, made their first appearance.
