Kids 15 SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2017 DT TRIVIA Did you know? Fun facts about money • Cattle are probably the oldest of all forms of money. The use of cattle as money dates back to 9000 BC. • The first coins, pieces of bronze shaped like cattle, appeared around 2000 BC. Their value was determined by their weight, making it difficult to ascertain at times. • The first coins were minted (made) around 2500 years ago. • Paper money was first used in China over 1000 years ago. • Before the days of paper money, Americans traded animal skins, including deer and elk bucks for goods and services. Hence the word “buck” is used to describe money. • A piece of currency can be folded forward and back Bending water Can water be bent? Let’s find out! 4,000 times before it will tear. • Currency is made of 25 percent linen and 75 percent cotton paper. • FUN SCIENCE BOOK REVIEW The tale of the Grunts Meet Mr and Mrs Grunt and their son, Sunny. Sunny isn’t really their son - they stole him from a washing line as a baby since Mr Grunt decided that he would make a perfect present for Mrs Grunt. Mrs Grunt knows boys like blue - so she dyed her old dresses blue and put him in those! They live in their homemade caravan built “out of stuff” pulled by two donkeys, Clip and Clop. They never stop anywhere for long, but always end up in all kinds of troubles no matter where they go. It becomes worse when the Grunts attempt to buy an elephant, and get caught between Lord Bigg of Bigg Manor, Bigg-hater Larry Smalls, Mimi the Bigg Manor boot boy and a swarm of angry bees – resulting in some serious misunderstandings and mischief! A Roald Dahl-ish book, The Grunts in Trouble is packed with jokes which are hilarious MOVIE along with weird characters, a comical storyline and an easy read that is perfect for reluctant readers looking for a short (109 pages) funny story to read. Axel Scheffler’s artwork adds a brilliant charm to the book. • Book: The Grunts in Trouble • Author: Philip Ardagh • Illustrator: Axel Scheffler • Series: The Grunts • Age: +7 • Tinker Bell is back! Review: Secret of the Wings You’ll require: • A plastic comb (or an inflated balloon) • A narrow stream of water from a tap • Dry hair Instructions: Turn on the water so it falls from the tap in a narrow stream (just a thin stream, few millimetres across but not droplets). Brush your hair with the comb normally (do this around 10 times). If you are using a balloon then rub it back and forth against your hair for a few seconds. Slowly move the comb or balloon towards the stream of water (without touching it) and watch closely. The science? When you comb your hair or rub it against the balloon, you create static electricity. Static electricity occurs when negatively charged particles called electrons jump from your hair to the comb when they come in contact. The comb gains extra electrons and becomes negatively charged. On the other hand, water has both positive and negatively charged particles and is therefore, neutral. Positive and negative charges attract each other. So when you move the negatively charged comb or balloon towards the stream, it attracts the water’s positively charged particles and the stream bends towards the comb or balloon!• Remember Peter Pan? If you do, then you’ll surely remember his trusted side-kick, the little pixie fairy, Tinker Bell. Guess what, Tinker Bell is back with her very own story! It was in 2008 that Disney first produced a Tinker Bell story featuring the pretty little fairy as the main character. Later in 2012, Disney produced Secret of the Wings which follows Tinker Bell and her fairy friends into the forbidden world of the mysterious Winter Woods, where curiosity and adventure lead Tink to an amazing discovery and reveal a magical secret that could change her world forever. One day, Tink temporarily crosses the border into the forbidden land and realises her wings are sparkling. Determined to figure out why her wings are reacting like that, she checks out a book in the fairy library only to be told that the author lives in the Winter Woods. Tink sneaks back over to find the author and then meets Periwinkle, a frost fairy whose wings also begin to sparkle. As it turns out, Tink and Peri are fairy sisters! But there are dangers to crossing between the lands. Tinker Bell’s wings may freeze in winter but Periwinkle cannot survive without the snow. Thus, the rules passed down from the fairy leaders insist that they remain apart in their own lands - a law that both sisters intend to defy at all costs. A sweet story sprinkled with adventure and beautiful artwork, you will surely enjoy this one! •
