Fun Math Assembly Program Jack Rabbit

Breed: Unique Rabbit
Age: 6 Years
Birthday: February 29 (think about it)
Favorite Book: The Tortoise and The Hare Race Again by Dan Bernstein
Facts about Rabbits: Once thought to be rodents, rabbits are now recognized as being distinct, thought their front teeth do continue to grow throughout their lives. This is why they have to have hard things (like wood) to chew on, to help grind down their teeth.
    Jack is a Unique rabbit. How do you catch a unique rabbit? You neak up on him!
    How do you catch a tame rabbit? Tame way.


Science Assembly Program Petey the Opposum

Age: 8 Years
Birthday: March 3
Favorite Book: Possum Magic
Facts about Opossums: Opossums (commonly called "Possums") are the only surviving North American Marsupial. Marsupials are mammals who care for their young in a pouch. Other marsupials include Kangaroos, Wallabies, Tasmanian Devils, Tasmanian Wolves (thought to be extinct since the last one seen alive was more than 30 years ago), as well as several smaller species, most living in Australia. Australia is also the home of another marsupial called the Possum, named after the Opossum.
     Opossums have more teeth than any other mammal in the world (not more than any other ANIMAL, just more than any other MAMMAL).


Teach Children to Write Claudia

Age: 12 Years
Birthday: August 5
Favorite Book: Betty Crocker Cook Book
Facts about Hippos:
A hippo can open her mouth three feet (1 meter)! Even though they are herbivores (eating only plants) they are still one of the most dangerous animals in Africa because they are so fierce and protective.


Fun Educatitonal Assemblies Chester Drawers

Age: 13 Years
Birthday: January 24
Favorite Book: Yertle the Turtle, by Dr. Seuss
Facts about Turtles: Turtles and Tortoises can live to a very old age. The oldest known tortoise was at least 188 years old when she died.
   A turtle's shell is actually about 50 different bones including ribs, vertebrae, and bony skin plates.
   Turtles have lived on the earth since the age of dinosaurs, about 200 million years. Since that time they have changed very little.


Engaged Learners Fun Assemblies Art, the Magic Drawing Board

Age: Varies, depending on who is being drawn
Birthday: Varies, depending on who is being drawn
Favorite Book: How to Draw Faces in 3 Easy Steps
Favorite Book Series: Harry Potter I just LOVE how the pictures can move and talk...very realistic if you ask me.
Favorite Book Genre: Biography. When you read a biography it is like talking to someone from the past. You can read their thoughts and even their letters and diary entries. I find it fascinating to get into the heads of famous and successful people.


History School Assembly Programs Beauregard, the Red-Necked Vulture

Breed: Red-Necked Turkey Vulture
Age: 11 Years
Birthday: October 22
Favorite Book: Professor Aesop's Story of the Crow and the Pitcher
Facts about Buzzards: If Turkey Vultures are bothered by someone or something they will throw up on them. Remember that vultures eat animals that have been laying on the ground dead for sometimes days on end. As if throwing up isn't nasty enough, Turkey Vultures throw up some REALLY nasty stuff! Whatever you do, DON'T bother a Turkey Vulture unless you have LOTS of soap!


Anti-Bullying School Assembly Meihoo, the Dragon

Breed: Blue Dragon
Age: 126 Years
Birthday: April 1
Favorite Song: Don't Laugh at Me
Favorite Book: Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone (I just LOVE that Norbert!)
Facts about Dragons: They don't really exist, but the rumors of dragons probably started when people began discovering the fossilized remains of dinosaurs, which they imagined were dragons.


Reading Library Show Darwin, the Chimp

Breed: Chimpanzee
Age: 9 Years
Birthday: November 11
Favorite Book Series: Junie B. Jones. That Junie B. just cracks me up! She is SO funny!
Facts about Chimpanzees: Chimps are not monkeys, they are apes. Monkeys, Apes, and Humans are all primates but there are differences in each category. Monkeys have tails, apes and humans don't. Apes and monkeys have opposable digits (thumbs) on their feet and humans don't.
