Barry was even sadder than before.
Later Jack and Kate went to Barry's house and told him that that they help him
get back. But he must promise not to cheat again. He agreed and from then on

Welcome to the Planet Earth Museum. Here you can learn some interesting
facts about our planet.
There are many amazing places on the Earth. Forests are home for the world of
animals and plants. Trees clean the air and produce oxygen for us to breathe.
We destroy more than 36 football fields of forests every minute and throw
away thousands of trees in paper every day.
The oceans are home to millions of marine animals. A lot of the rubbish we
throw to the oceans. Turtles mistake plastic bags for jellyfish and die when they eat
absorb and clean the water so it is safe for us to drink.
This is a green world and people must respect nature.

The weather is an interesting subject we can always talk about. It often changes
and brings cold and heat, sunshine and rain, frost and snow. One day is often unlike
We usually say: “A nice day”, “Not a bad day” or “its nice weather for the time
of the year” if we like the weather.
We can say: “It looks like rain”, “it looks like snow” or “It’s bad weather”
when the weather is bad.
In summer the sun shines, there is no wind and there are clouds in the sky
which are blue and beautiful. We can see stars and the moon at night and people like
to walk, play outdoor games and sports in the fresh air.
When autumn comes, the days become shorter and colder. It gets dark earlier
and often heavy clouds cover the sky bringing rain with them. Sometimes there is
heavy rain, so that an umbrella or a raincoat is necessary.
At last frost and snow come. Trees and houses are covered with snow and
rivers and lakes with ice. But spring again brings sunshine and warm wind.
Sometimes it snows but snow will not remain long, it will melt in the warm sun.
Spring will bring bright sunshine, green grass and flowers.
The Little Gingerbread Man
Once upon a time there was an old woman who loved baking gingerbread. She
baked gingerbread cookies, cakes, houses and gingerbread people, all decorated with
chocolate and peppermint, caramel candies.
She lived with her husband on a farm at the edge of town. Children liked the
sweet spicy smell of gingerbread. They came to see what would be offered that day.
Unfortunately the children gobbled up so fast that the old woman had not time
to continue making the batches of gingerbread. Sometimes she suspected little hands
because gingerbread pieces and cookies disappeared.
One day she made a special batch of gingerbread men because they were extra
big. Unfortunately for the last gingerbread man she ran out of batter and he was half
the size of the others.
She decorated the gingerbread men with care, each having socks, shirt and
pants of different colors. When it came to the little gingerbread man she felt sorry for
him and gave him more color than the others. "It doesn't matter he's small," she
thought, "He'll still be tasty."
The Boys and the Frogs

At last the oldest and bravest Frog put his head out of the water and said "Oh,
please, dear children, stop your cruel play! Though it may be fun for you, but it
means death to us!"
Always stop to think whether your fun may be the cause of another’s
