Today’s edition of Kid Scoop looks at the many pets stuck in animal shelters across America. Animal shelters are places where dogs, cats and other animals are taken when they are unwanted or need to be taken from their owners.

While animal shelters can be noisy and scary places for animals, they can help those pets connect with new owners who will take care of them. Here are a few great stories of animals that were brought to a shelter and now have a better home.

Kid Scoop roots out the earth movers

Today’s Kid Scoop entry looks at the creatures around us that serve as earth movers and shapers. These animals often live underground and use their specialized body parts to dig into the soil as they hunt for food and create shelter for themselves.

Lots of animals could be considered earth movers — from the big creatures like elephants to the tiniest ant. Elephants, for example, use their tusks to dig up edibles. Ants make complex colonies under the ground, which unpacks the dirt and allows plants to grow.

People can also be considered earth movers. We dig up the ground for the same reasons animals do — to help us make better homes and to help us make more food. To that end, people have created all sorts of massive machines to do all that hard work for us.

Not all ants work exclusively underground. These ants, commonly known as lemon ants, work with a particular plant to keep the ground clear so that only their plant will grow. So, in a sense, these ants work just like people do — we make a space in the earth for the vegetation we want to grow. http://youtu.be/y0M8QSCjcdM

In this video, the sounds created by desert grass attracts an earth moving mole. http://youtu.be/8NF1129yjwY

Tortoises also do a little earth moving of their own. In this video, a pet tortoise named Claudine digs a burrow for her own protection. http://youtu.be/CIlVhyz8WaA

Blow your top over volcanoes

Today Kid Scoop turns its attention to volcanic eruptions, one of the most dangerous events the Earth can dish out. Volcanoes are typically found where two tectonic plates slide away from one another, but can also be the result of hot spots underneath a continental plate.

For humans, volcanoes can pose a real danger because the ash exploding from a volcano can make it impossible to breathe. Even worse, volcanoes can spew out red-hot lava that burns everything around it.

Heat from inside the Earth pushes outward causing volcanoes to erupt on the surface.

Heat from inside the Earth pushes outward causing volcanoes to erupt on the surface.


The good news is that volcanic activity in mainland America is relatively rare — although there was one volcanic explosion in Washington state. In May 1980, the volcano called Mount St. Helens exploded and killed 57 people. Unlike the traditional concept of a volcano, Mount St. Helens exploded from its side and only ash and debris flew out, not lava.

Most of the volcanic activity in the U.S. happens in Alaska and Hawaii, with Hawaii having one of the most active volcanoes in the world.

The world looks peaceful from space … but there’s those volcanoes to worry about! http://youtu.be/Be7o6BYVOzA

In the early part of the first century, the volcano at Mount Vesuvius exploded near the Roman city of Pompeii. The citizens of the city were so surprised by the explosion that most were killed instantly and then their bodies were covered by ash. Centuries later, scientists uncovered the site to show the world what happens in a volcanic eruption. http://youtu.be/SDoSWAQXYqk

And now, check out some amazing footage of what it’s like right next to a churning pool of lava. http://youtu.be/DceHEBGVfj4

Today’s edition of Kid Scoop takes a look at those wriggly creatures that make their homes in your yard and under rocks — earthworms!

Earthworms, as you can tell, have no skeleton — or at least no boney skeleton. Instead they rely on what’s called a hydrostatic skeleton which uses fluid inside their body to help them move.

Scientists say an earthworm can live up to eight years in the wild, although most only live to age two.

Get to know groundhogs with Kid Scoop

Groundhogs, often called woodchucks, are well-known for their hibernation habits and, of course, the holiday named after them.

Groundhogs, often called woodchucks, are well-known for their hibernation habits and, of course, the holiday named after them.

Today’s edition of Kid Scoop takes a look at hibernation, the energy-conserving deep sleep that many animals do through the winter. Of course the most famous hibernator out there is the groundhog, thanks to the world famous holiday — Groundhogs Day — coming up on Saturday, Feb. 2.

But really, how many of us really know much about groundhogs? In National Geographic’s profile on the critter, we learn that groundhogs are a 13-pound plant eater and the largest member of the squirrel family. Aside from being excellent diggers, they can also swim and have even been known to climb trees.

The scientific name of the groundhog is marmota monax and they are sometimes called woodchucks. They can be found throughout the eastern U.S., most of Canada and into Alaska.

Learn the basics of Groundhog Day. http://youtu.be/5HynP_QFf5o

And have you ever wondered how many weather-predicting groundhogs there are? CGP Grey has the answers! http://youtu.be/7-Nl4JFDLOU

Kid Scoop plays reindeer games

Real reindeer look more like a moose than a white-tailed deer. (Photo by Kevin Dooley via Flickr.com)

Today’s Kid Scoop celebrates one of the most enduring images of Christmas — the fact that Santa Claus’ sleigh is pulled by a team of reindeer.

Reindeer, of course, are real creatures but they don’t look quite as cute as the deer Americans are most familiar with. Instead, they’re more like a moose than a white-tailed deer.

Reindeer, which can weigh up to 700 lbs each, come from the subarctic and arctic regions of the Northern Hemisphere and that makes them ideal animals to help Santa out on his yearly mission. To help them beat the cold, they have a thick coat of fur that can have a variety of colors, including white, brown and black.

Both male and female reindeer grow antlers. This is to help them dig through deep snow and uncover plants to eat.

As for Santa Claus’ reindeer, Wikipedia has a long article on the team, but you know the top nine reindeer, right? They are:

  • Dasher
  • Dancer
  • Prancer
  • Vixen
  • Comet
  • Cupid
  • Donner
  • Blitzen
  • Rudolph (when the weather calls for his inclusion)

Here are some quick video facts about reindeer. http://youtu.be/cPKTub8iUB0

A day to honor veterans

Veterans Day honors the sacrifices our military personnel have made to keep our country safe.

Today Kid Scoop is looking at Veterans Day and how you, as a kid, can help to celebrate it and honor the soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and other service personnel that have helped to protect our country.

Veterans Day is marked every year on November 11 in honor of the peace treaties signed at the end of World War I. That armistice was signed at 11 a.m., on the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918, which is why the number 11 is significant to Veterans Day.

Kid Scoop offers a number of ways you can help mark the day, but you can also simply reach out to your relatives, neighbors and teachers and ask them if they are veterans. If they are, be sure to thank them for their service.

They might want to talk to you about what they have done in the military or they may not, but be sure to thank them for keeping America strong.

Here’s a great video about remembering the role the military has in our history. http://youtu.be/MnvPBYoJ_bY

Kid Scoop gets spooky with Edgar Allan Poe

Edgar Allan Poe is a famous writer who died in 1849. He’s featured in today’s Halloween-themed edition of Kid Scoop. He’s credited with creating the detective story, but his most famous work is probably the poem called “The Raven.”

In that poem, a man is pestered by a raven who seems to be something more than it is.

The poem has been read and dramatized by many people over the years, including on an episode of “The Simpsons.” One of the best was done by Vincent Price, a legend in the movie business for his numerous horror films.

Beyond “The Raven,” Poe also wrote the a lot of other spooky tales. The chilling “Tell-Tale Heart” explores the guilt a murderer feels. The spine-tingling “Cask of Amontillado” focuses on a guy who is buried alive. “The Pit and the Pendulum” is an exercise in sheer terror as a man waits to be sliced in two. In all, Poe came up with a lot of scary ideas!

All these great works were written more than 150 years ago, long before Halloween was a common holiday in the United States, yet they’re still considered to be among the best short stories ever written.

You can hear Vincent Price’s version of “The Raven” here. http://youtu.be/zuGZ_wp_i9w

Kid Scoop is ready to play ball

Alexander Cartwright is crediting with authoring the first baseball rulebook. He also worked as a firefighter, which explains the funny hat he’s wearing.

This week’s edition of Kid Scoop focuses on the great game of baseball. Years ago, people said the game was first developed by Abner Doubleday, but it is actually a “folk game” that developed over time until official rules were published around 1845 by Alexander Cartwright. Cartwright even served as the umpire in the first game of baseball played under his set of rules.

The organization that became Major League Baseball was founded in 1869 with the creation of the Cincinnati Red Stockings team.

Baseball was immensely popular through the 1800s and 1900s, and is still called “America’s pastime,” although some people will tell you that designation now really should go to football.

Still thanks to the sport’s popularity there’s been hundreds of tributes made to the game in the form of movies, cartoons, comics, poems, songs and stories.

Here’s a look at the famous “Casey at the Bat” poem. http://youtu.be/O2F0qC1-sa0

Kid Scoop befriends the Grizzly

Read more Benny and Boone comics by Barton Pederson at BennyandBoone.com.

Today Kid Scoop is looking into the plight of grizzly bears, those majestic and might creatures who now only roam the wilds of Canada and Alaska.

Grizzly bears can grow to be quite big — the biggest can weigh almost 800 pounds. They are carnivores (meat eaters) by nature, but they will happily eat plants berries too.

Though grizzlies almost never hunt humans, they will attack them for other reasons including defending their young. Because a grizzly is so tall, experts don’t suggest that you climb up a tree to escape them.

Campers and backpackers can protect their food from bears by hanging the food between trees  (really, really high) or storing it in a “bear canister” which is a nearly unbreakable container.

For a look at the life of the grizzly bear, check out the free “Benny and Boone” webcomics here.

As usual, here are some kid-friendly grizzly bear videos.

Kid Scoop looks into advertising

Today’s Kid Scoop studies something that every kid needs more information on: Advertising and how it can affect your opinions on things and how you spend your money (and what you ask your parents to spend money on).

This famous commercial from the 1980s had viewers guessing until the product was revealed. Watch it in the link below! http://youtu.be/baChXz9OKOw

The business world isn’t a bad thing by any means, but it often wants you to buy lots of things that might not really be important for you to buy. Advertising is the way a lot of these industries convince you to buy their products.

Businesses usually try to make their advertising really interesting, funny or exciting to their the kids they buying their products. The business world has done this since they first started printing newspapers centuries ago.

Now you are more likely to see kid-specific advertising on the television or on the internet rather than in the newspaper.

Some television advertisements are considered to be so good that they actually win awards. These awards are called Clios,

With that in mind, we wanted you to take a look at some of the award-winning TV commercials over the years. Some of them are funny, some are exciting.  Let us know in the comments below what you think of the commercials. Are they tricky? Do they “sell” the product well? Does the commercial make you want that item? How funny are they?

WATCH THIS: This one might remind you of a Disney movie that came a decade later (it’s image is used above). http://youtu.be/baChXz9OKOw

This one is called “The Art of Shaving.” Even we can’t tell what it’s really advertising. http://youtu.be/26KLeDIyPhc

This one tries to make older people remember their days as a child.
