::Where Do Worms Go in Winter?::

::  Today’s wonder is about earthworms.  You just have to go to   http://wonderopolis.org/wonder/where-do-worms-go-in-winter/ .  Their gross.  There are over 4,400.  More than 2,700 are earthworms.  That's super gross!  Some earthworms live on top of the soil in winter which means they will die.  but they lay eggs in tiny egg sacks to keep their species alive, but most o them burrow down under the frost line.::

::Secret Societys::

:: http://wonderopolis.org/wonder/why-are-there-secret-societies/ Today I learned about secret societies.  There really cool.  I'm going to start my own secret society.  Here's some things I learned about secret societies:
Some secret societies go to great lengths to hide the fact that they even exist. Others, though, don’t hide their existence. But just because you might know they exist, don’t think that you’ll know much about them if you’re not a member.  Secret societies can be found on many college campuses as fraternities and sororities. These secret societies are fairly open and aren’t considered overly secretive, except when it comes to certain rituals, such as a secret handshake.  I really want to start my own secret society and I already have a handshake::

::Prairie Dogs

 ::Today I learned about Prairie Dogs on this website called http://wonderopolis.org I love it.
Prairie dogs are rodents who live underground in burrows in the open grasslands and prairies of western North America. About the size of rabbits, prairie dogs aren’t related to dogs at all. In fact, they’re most closely related to squirrels.  I think that;s funny.  The reason why their called Prairie dogs is because when a prairie dog sees danger it will bark.    
This is the word:
insignia.  Pronunciation:  {in-SIG-ni-uh}
