A fluffy-tailed squirrel barks out a warning. Another squirrel nearby quickly stands up on its hind legs, freezes and scans the area for danger. This time there is no danger. The squirrel that barked is actually a robot squirrel named Rocky. Scientists are watching how other squirrels react to Rocky—and its noises and tail wagging— to find out what different sounds and body movements mean in “squirrel talk.”

ocky looks like a squirrel, not a robot. But it is a machine that scientists operate by remote control. Scientists can play recorded squirrel sounds through tiny speakers inside the robo-squirrel. They can also make the robo-squirrel’s tail move.

Standards Link: Investigation: Students know that scientists and engineers often work in teams to accomplish a task.

Sarah Partan, Assistant Professor of animal behavior at Hampshire College in Massachusetts, uses a robotic squirrel in order to observe squirrels in their natural environment, rather than in the artificial environment of a lab. Scientists like Professor Partan hope to learn more about how squirrels communicate.

Squirrels have teeth like their rodent COUSINS – mice, rats and hamsters. All rodents have four big teeth in the FRONT of their mouths. Two are on the top and two on the bottom. They are called incisors. These four incisor teeth keep GROWING throughout the squirrel’s lifetime. Gnawing hard objects such as nuts and ACORNS keep the teeth from getting so big that the squirrel can’t eat. A squirrel gnawed these words off of this paragraph. Where do they belong?

Tree squirrels bury nuts and seeds and use their keen sense of smell to find the buried food at a later date. Some of the nuts and seeds never get eaten and start to grow. In this way, squirrels help new plants to grow. Ground squirrels collect and stuff nuts and grains into pouches inside their cheeks. Then they take the food back to their burrows. Climb down from the top of this tree like a squirrel.

Squirrels live on all continents of the world, except two. Antarctica is one of them. Can you guess the other? Check your guess by using the code.

Check out the Full Moon! with NASA Space Place When you look up at the night sky, you might notice that the Moon looks a little different each night. This is due to our Moon's many phases and types. A full moon occurs when the side of the Moon facing Earth is fully lit up by the Sun. But did you know that not all full moons look the same?

Rather, a blue moon is special because it is the "extra" Moon in a season with four full moons. This usually only happens every two-and-a-half years. Since the 1940s, the term "blue moon" has also been used for the second full moon in a calendar month. This usually happens only every two-and-a-half years.

The name "blood moon" is also sometimes used for a Moon that appears reddish because of dust, smoke or haze in the sky. And it can be one of the full moons of autumn when the leaves are turning red.

Supermoon

Harvest Moon

Sometimes, the Moon may appear to glow red. Other times, the Moon may appear larger than usual in our night sky. The Moon itself is not changing colors or sizes. Its changes in appearance are usually due to its position in relation to the Sun and Earth. Supermoon, Blood Moon, Blue Moon and Harvest Moon are a few of those unusual full moons.

The term "harvest moon" refers to the full, bright Moon that occurs closest to the start of autumn. The name dates from the time before electricity, when farmers depended on the Moon's light to harvest their crops late into the night. The Moon's light was particularly important during fall, when harvests are the largest.

Blood Moon

One meaning of a "blood moon" is based on its red glow. This blood moon occurs during a total lunar eclipse. During a total lunar eclipse, Earth lines up between the Moon and the Sun. This hides the Moon from the sunlight. When this happens, the only light that reaches the Moon's surface is from the edges of the Earth's atmosphere. The air molecules from Earth's atmosphere scatter out most of the blue light. The remaining light reflects onto the Moon's surface with a red glow, making the Moon appear red in the night sky.

A "supermoon" appears to us as a larger-than-usual Moon in our night sky. A supermoon looks larger just because it's a bit closer to Earth. "Supermoon" is actually just a nickname for what astronomers call a perigean full moon – a moon that is full and at its closest point in its orbit around Earth.

Blue Moon

Learn more at https://spaceplace.nasa.gov/full-moons/.

When you hear someone say, "Once in a blue moon …" you know they are talking about something rare. A blue moon is not blue in color. In fact, a blue moon does not look any different than a regular, monthly full moon.

Can you tell which of the following statements are true and which are not? Check your answers by adding the numbers next to each statement. The statements with odd numbers are true. The statements with even numbers are false. 18 - 7 =

The prairie dog is a kind of squirrel.

24 + 8 =

All squirrels live in trees.

12 + 9 =

Squirrels greet each other by touching noses.

35 - 12 =

One kind of squirrel “flies” by gliding.

29 - 15 =

Baby squirrels are born with fur and open eyes.

The November full moon is often known as the Full Beaver Moon, named after beavers because this is the time that beavers become particularly active building their winter dams in preparation for the cold season. The beaver is mainly nocturnal, so they keep working under the light of the full moon.

NATURE EXPLORERS

Why Do Autumn Leaves Change Colors?

Leaves

How Leaves Change Color

Leaves create food and sap for trees by using carbon dioxide, sunlight, water and minerals in a process called photosynthesis. Leaves also give off oxygen.

During the Spring and Summer seasons, broadleaf leaves produce the tree's food and sap factories. A green-colored material called cholorophyll helps the broadleaf leaves continue to produce the tree's food in the Spring and Summer. The same leaves also have other colors such as red, yellow or orange, but they are hidden by the chlorophyll's green color.

Two Types of Leaves

In the United States, the two main types of trees are broadleaf (also called deciduous) and needleleaf (also called coniferous).

Broadleaf trees shed their leaves in the Fall. Examples of broadleaf trees are apple, maple (shown at left) and oak.

As the days get shorter in the Fall, the nights get longer and cooler, causing the broadleaf leaves to stop making food. As the chlorophyll breaks down, the leaves' green color disappears, and the other hidden colors begin to show.

Needleleaf trees have green leaves year-round (also called evergreen). Examples of needleleaf trees include pine, spruce, cedars and fir trees.

Then a layer of cells forms at the base of each leaf stem, cutting the tissues that connect the leaf to the tree, so that the leaf falls off the tree.

Local Hiking Trails in Chapel Hill, Durham & Hillsborough In Chapel Hill, Carrboro, Hillsborough, Durham and throughout the North Carolina Triangle, beautiful fall days are perfect for a family outing. Go for a family walk at your neighborhood park, or take a family trip to one of the many beautiful hiking areas nearby.

The Eno River western trails offer some shorter, easier hikes that are a good start for beginners, and shorter hikes for families with younger children. http://www.ncparks.gov/Visit/parks/enri/pics/ parkmap.pdf Occoneechee Mountain State Natural Area (Hillsborough, NC) - Hike to the highest points in Orange County for beautiful views; a favorite local family outing. http://www.ncparks.gov/Visit/parks/ocmo/main.php Hillsborough Riverwalk (Hillsborough, NC) Explore beautiful new hiking trails with wooden footbridges and a trail entrance near Weaver Street Market in Hillsborough (shown below). Riverwalk is part of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail connecting hiking trails from the North Carolina coast to the North Carolina mountains. https://www.hillsboroughnc.gov/community/parkfacilities/riverwalk/

1. Be smart and know your limits. Kids under age 10 shouldn’t hike more than five miles in one day. Two- to four-year-olds will probably only be able to hike a mile or two. Be sure to take plenty of breaks! Use the buddy system and never hike alone.

2. Dress comfortably and dress to anticipate temperature changes. Wear layers so that as you get warm, you can shed layers. A hat will keep your head warm in the cooler part of the day, and protect you from the sun later. Wear sunscreen and sunglasses. 3. Be prepared. Some things you’ll want to bring along for a long hike are a water bottle, trail snacks, a map, a compass, and a first aid kit. You might want to bring a notebook, sketch pad or camera to make notes and pictures of the things you see on your hike. 4. Be alert for wildlife. Stay on the trails, and watch where you step. You might encounter wildlife on your hike, including snakes. If you are lucky, you might also get to see deer and other wildlife. Never approach or feed wildlife. Take time to notice your surroundings, enjoy the changing leaves and beautiful views. Let others enjoy it, too; when you are quiet on the trail, you and others can hear nature’s beautiful sounds. 5. Be kind. Leave the area as you find it. Examine, but do not touch, cultural or historic structures and artifacts. Leave rocks, plants and other natural objects as you find them. Happy hiking!

Find the two identical lanterns.

by Arjun Mishra, India, age 13

Diwali, the festival of lights is the most enjoyed festival in India. It brings a smile to the saddest of faces.

Five Days of Diwali Celebrations Diwali is celebrated for five days each year in October or November. On the first day, families clean their homes thoroughly for good fortune, give sweets to the children, and light diya (little clay lanterns). On the second day, homes are decorated with lights and "rangoli," colorful patterns made on the floor with rice, powders, sand, and flower petals.

People in India decorate floors and pavement with rangoli patterns. These beautiful decorations are usually made with rice flour and water or made with powdery, colored sand.

On the third day, families gather together for a special prayer ceremony, a big meal, and fireworks.

You can use colored chalk to decorate your school yard or sidewalk with rangoli patterns. Complete the rangoli patterns on this page.

On the fourth day, friends and family exchange gifts, celebrating a new beginning. The fifth day is a celebration of siblings’ affection and love. Brothers in India visit their married sisters' families for a special meal.

AROUND THE WORLD

Diwali India's Festival of Lights

In India, Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights, is one of the biggest and most widely celebrated festivals of the year. It is also one of the most beautiful festivals, as candles, lights and lanterns light the night everywhere. Light is very important in Diwali celebrations, and strings of colorful lanterns, clay lamps, bonfires, and fireworks all are part of the traditional Diwali celebrations. Diwali is named after the rows of clay lanterns called "diyas" that are lit in homes, shops, and in public places. Diwali also is celebrated with treats, shopping for new clothes, and special family meals. The lights and traditional stories of Diwali symbolize light over darkness; the victory of good over evil. Each year Diwali is celebrated in October or November. (The date changes each year, according to the position of the Moon.) This year, Diwali (also known as Deepavali) takes place from November 5 through November 9th. The main Diwali festivities take place on the third day (this year, on November 7th.)

While Jamestown, Virginia is not a town today, it was the first permanent English settlement in the Americas. It was started 13 years before the Pilgrims arrived on the Mayflower.

After Christopher Columbus arrived in the Americas, the Spanish and Portuguese sent more explorers who then came back with gold, silver and other treasure.

The English wanted to find treasure of their own. They also wanted a base in the Americas from which they could launch attacks on Spain’s settlements. Standards Link: History: Understand the challenges faced by settlers; Students understand why the Americas attracted European explorers and settlers.

These first settlers were educated, but many had never farmed. They knew nothing of living in a wilderness. Fortunately, one man, Captain John Smith, knew how to plant crops, fish and build a fort. Captain Smith knew that it would be difficult to survive the first winter. He made a strict law – those who did not work did not eat. Smith traded kettles, jewelry and other goods for food. He traded with Chief Powhatan, leader of the Native Americans who lived where the British had built their fort.

The Grinch

Wreck-It Ralph 2

(In Theaters: November 9, 2018)

(In Theaters: November 21, 2018)

In this new 3D computer-animated animated comedy Christmas film version of the beloved Dr. Seuss book, How the Grinch Stole Christmas! the Grinch and his loyal dog, Max, live a solitary existence inside a cave on Mount Crumpet. The Grinch's main source of aggravation comes during Christmastime, when his neighbors in Whoville celebrate the holidays with a bang (and lots of noise).

In this much-anticipated sequel to the Wreck-It Ralph movie, Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 leaves Litwak's video arcade behind, venturing into the uncharted, expansive and thrilling world of the internet - which may or may not survive Ralph's wrecking.

When the Whos decide to make Christmas bigger and brighter, the disgruntled Grinch realizes there is one way to gain peace and quiet. With help from Max, the green grump hatches a scheme to pose as Santa Claus, steal Christmas and silence the Whos' holiday cheer once and for all. Rated PG (for brief rude humor.) 1 hr. 30 min. Universal Pictures, Illumination Entertainment.

Video game misfit hero Wreck-It Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) must risk it all by traveling to the world wide web in search of a replacement part to save Vanellope's video game, Sugar Rush. Ralph and Vanellope rely on the citizens of the internet - the netizens - to help navigate their way, including a website entrepreneur named Yesss (voice of Taraji P. Henson), who is the head algorithm and the leader of trend-making website "Buzztube." Cameo appearances by many Disney characters, including Mickey Mouse, Baymax, and all of the Disney princesses. Rated PG. 1 hr., 38 min. Walt Disney Animation Studios.
