Did you Know...

Finding Life:  There are lots of plants and animals living on th earth, but there are still many to be found.  Scientists tend to look for new species on coral reefs and sea floors, which are rich sources of life.

Doing the dishes:  The first dishwasher was inveted by an American woman name Josephine Cochrane.  It was not vecause she hated doing dishes, but because her servants kept breaking her good china.  She patented her machine in 1886.

Population density:  Although Canada is 40 times the size of Britain, almost twice as many people live in Britain, which has a populatin of just over 60 million (including England, Scotland and Wales).  Canada is home to only 35 million people.

Energy boost:  One country that has become renowned for its use of renewable energy is Spain.  There, solar power and wind energy are well-utilized sorces of power.

Warm and cozy:  Igloos, made by the Inuit for centuries, are created from blocks of snow.  These Arctic dwellings are surprisingly warm because snow has insulating qualities, which traps body heat inside the structure.
