What is a Comet? A comet is a small chunk of dust and ice that orbits, or travels around, the sun. It is sometimes described as a “dirty snowball.” There are billions of comets in the solar system, but most never pass close by Earth. The best-known comet is called Halley’s Comet. It can be seen from Earth about every 76 years. Most comets are so small and so far away that we cannot see them, even in the biggest telescopes. But we can see them when they head inwards toward the Sun and grow tails of gas and dust. (The word comet means ‘hairy star’.) DID YOU KNOW? Ancient people were afraid of comets – they were said to bring bad luck or foretell disaster. Comets are usually divided into two groups determined by the…

controlling anger

There was once a young boy who had a problem controlling his temper. When he became angry, he would say anything that came to his mind and hurt people. So his father gave him a bag of nails and a hammer and said, “Every time you get angry, hammer one nail into the fence in our backyard”. The first few days, the boy hammered so many nails that he emptied half the bag. Over the weeks, the number of nails he hammered to the fence reduced and gradually, his temper was much in control. Then came a day when he didn’t lose his temper at all. His father asked him to remove one nail each day that he manages not to lose his temper. Finally, on the day the child was removing the last nail,…

hello friends,

We hope you’d enjoyed our last issue and enjoyed being busy with the activities. On 5th June, we celebrated World Environment Day. This day is marked to encourage awareness & action for the protection of the environment. This was initiated by United Nations in 1974 to create awareness on environmental issues like marine pollution, global warming, sustainable consumption, and wildlife crime. Each year has a theme, and this year’s theme of World Environment Day was, Reimagine, Recreate, Restore. The motto of this theme was ecosystem restoration, preventing, halting, and reversing the damage that we have made to the environment and go from exploiting nature to healing it. We hope you all will do your bit to contribute towards the restoration of our environment. So, keep up the high spirit & smile bright. With lots of…

I could believe in ghosts. The maid told me there might be ghosts in the house. Son, we don’t have a maid. We need to leave.…
