Some animals survive harsh winters by hibernating. They spend months in a sleep-like state. Other animals migrate. They travel to places with warmer weather and more food. Many birds migrate in flocks during the fall. Some mammals, like bats and caribou, also migrate. Humpback whales leave the cold north near Alaska for the warmer waters of the south Pacific.
In 1928, Walter Diemer invented bubble gum. He was experimenting with new chewing gum recipes. One of the recipes was less sticky than chewing gum. It could stretch enough to make bubbles. This recipe became Dubble Bubble, which is still popular today.
A simile is a figure of speech that uses the words as or like to describe a noun (a person, place, or thing) or an action. Similes compare one noun or an action to another to help describe the noun or action.
Some examples of similes are as quiet as a mouse, like a ray of sunshine, and as fast as a cheetah.
