6 Read out Harry, the little wood worm by Michael Grotefendt Knirsch, crispy, creaky - Harry gnaws leisurely through the 100-year-old oak panel. Harry is a little wood worm. He lives in a carpenter's warehouse and enjoys this life in abundance! Today is his birthday. He was 48 weeks old. If you compare that with a human age, then that would be around 48 years for humans. Every now and then Harry gets a visit from his friends. Most of them live in the forest. However, when they rave about their life in freedom, he can only smile tiredly. They tell him how exciting it is to be chased by birds and other wild animals! How edifying it is to look out of your home trunk to enjoy the rustling of the trees and the sunshine! How alive you feel when rain and cold touch you! Harry doesn't need any of that! Here in his wood store there are woods from all over the world. Fruity and exotic tasting tropical woods such as meranti, mahogany, teak and balsa wood, rosewood and bongossi among many others. Or woods from the far north such as Knotty White and Knotty Pine, which tasted tart and rustic. But also local woods - whether oak or beech, coniferous woods like Douglas fir, spruce and pine are stored here as well as very special delicacies like fruit woods and walnut, root wood or even rosewood from America or Jamaica. Harry loves his life here. He also doesn't think it's too boring here. Lately something really crazy happened to him. Just nibbling in a plate made of teak, it suddenly began to sway back and forth. It was lifted up and then taken somewhere. Harry was very excited, he had never flown before. Eventually it fell 6 down. Upon impact, he was pressed hard against the wall of his corridor. He lay there, dazed. Suddenly he heard a noise that he had only heard from afar, never as close as it was on this day. It was a deafening scream and then the bursting of wood fibers. Harry lay rigid in his corridor. All of a sudden the little woodworm was shocked to the core. Just behind him a monstrous creature ate its way through the wood, tearing everything that came in its way. Had Harry still been there it would have cut him in half. He had hardly noticed the return of his plate. Only the impact when laying down shook him again a lot. Harry was sick for days after this experience. He didn't like anything, he hardly ate holes in the wood. After all, it was enough for him. He wanted to heal himself. Weak from the low food intake, he left his plank and looked for a place to rest his medicine wood. That's what he called balsa wood. It tasted kind of medicinal, Harry thought. Should he explain this term, only terms such as tasty, digestible or inducing well-being came to mind. For a whole week he bored his way through the digestible wood. Eventually he got better. The carpenters in whose camp Harry is obviously not very fond of him. If they discover traces of him, they regularly scold and rant out loud. Harry usually doesn't mind, they'd never catch him in this huge wood store anyway. Once, however, they had sprayed all the wood in the camp with a stinking and bitter-smelling agent. For weeks Harry barely tasted a wood. Only a rosewood diet ended this condition. Today some friends will come to him again to celebrate his birthday with him. Harry reckons between 1 and 200 of them. He's still not sure whether he should lead them to the root wood or rather to the tropical wood? Maybe teak? Anyway, Harry will make the right decision. Congratulations Harry!

9 Wildlife The Adelie penguin The Adelie penguin is the most common penguin species. It is estimated that there are up to 20 million penguins of this species. The Adelie penguin has a black head. He has white circles around his eyes, which is what makes him so distinctive. Its beak looks very short and black. But half of the beak is covered with feathers and only the tip is black and the rest of the beak is red. The wings, which have been transformed into fins, are black on the upper side and white on the underside with a dark spot at the end of the fin. Adelie penguins, with their dark face and lack of elongated head feathers, cannot be confused with any other species of penguin. The young animals have gray and later brown plumage, until after a few weeks (like that of their parents) it turns blue-black. They have a white throat and black eye ring until they are around 14 months old. The many feathers and an extra thick layer of fat protect the penguin from the cold and keep him warm. The feathers are waterproof thanks to the special oil that the penguins produce in their bodies and thus also protect the penguin underwater. The Adelie penguin reaches a size of approximately 70 centimeters. This makes him one of the medium-sized penguins. Females weigh between 3.9 and 4.7 kilograms, males weigh between 4.3 and 5.3 kilograms. The contact call of the Adelie penguin is a short bark, which is onomatopoeically described as aark. This call, which lasts about 0.3 seconds, can also be heard by Adelie penguins on the open sea. Besides the emperor penguins, it is the only penguin species to live on the Antarctic continent, mostly on or near pack ice. He has few natural enemies. The young animals are only endangered by the skuas and the adults by leopard seals. The life expectancy of a penguin is therefore around 10 years, during which it remains loyal to its breeding partner once it has been found. The Adelie penguins usually breed near the coast and build a nest out of stones. After the female has laid two eggs 2-4 days apart, she goes looking for food. Opinions differ as to whether the male hatches the two eggs alone or whether the parents take turns to brood. But when rearing, both parent penguins take care of the chicks and take turns feeding. After a few weeks the young animals come together in a so-called kindergarten to protect themselves from enemies and both parents go hunting together. The largest breeding colony is on Cape Adare, a largely ice-free headland at the northeastern end of Victoria Land in East Antarctica. Pairs, for example, breed there. Adelie penguins mainly live on small crustaceans and also eat small fish. They usually find their prey at depths between ten and forty meters, but are able to dive up to 170 meters. Around forty percent of diving time is spent in water below 12.5 meters. In the breeding colonies further north, they only look for food during the daytime during the breeding season. In the more southern breeding colonies they search for food all day. In general, Adelie penguins are very sensitive to human interference. Wherever research stations were set up, such as on Cape Royds, the western cape of Ross Island in McMurdo Sound (a bay with a coast stretching approximately 450 km along the Antarctic Victoria Land), stocks declined. They only recovered after stricter rules limited human disturbance there. By the way, the Adelie penguin is named after the wife of the polar explorer who discovered these penguins around 1840. His name was Jules Dumont d Urville and his wife's name was Adelié. 9

11 Explained How is a film made? How is a film actually made? And who is involved in it? You can actually divide the making of a film into five different phases. 1. The script To write a script, the scriptwriter must first have an idea. This also includes knowing how the story and the different characters are supposed to develop and of course the main and subplots. So he has to develop a concept for his script. In the finished script there are instructions for the actors and cameramen, for example. The script is then sent to a production company. If they accept that, the script is revised and the search for a suitable director begins. 2. Film financing In this phase, the capital required for the film is raised. This means that you have to raise the money that is needed to pay everyone involved, the costs for technology, locations, sets and everything else. One of the most expensive films was Pirates of the Caribbean 3. It is said to have cost 222 million euros and was therefore more expensive than Rapunzel - new spoiled (150 million) and Harry Potter 6 at 185 million euros. 3. Pre-production During pre-production, things like the design and production of the required sets, the casting of actors, extras and extras, and the search and selection of locations and film sets take place. The costumes and masks also have to be procured or the costume and make-up images have to be completely redesigned. The producer and the director are important for this phase. 4. The shooting The shooting is probably the most interesting part of the film production. A film project is usually accompanied by a production manager, who in this phase ensures that all processes run smoothly and, if possible, without loss of time, since delays in production also increase costs. A lot of people are usually needed for filming. You need technicians, cameramen, cable operators, sound technicians, make-up artists, the people who take care of the make-up, of course the actors and extras, those are those who do not have a speaking role and, for example, run through the picture in the background, assistants and many more. 5. Post-production In post-production, the shot film is processed. This includes the cutting of the film, the post-processing of some images as well as the setting and background of the film with music, the so-called soundtrack. This is sometimes composed specifically for the film and recorded with an orchestra. If necessary, special effects must also be added. After that, but sometimes even during the production itself, the film is advertised. So you try to make the film more palatable to people. To do this, you publish trailers and TV spots, i.e. short clips in which you can see excerpts from different scenes. The film will then start in the cinemas on the previously determined and announced date. 11

12 Featured Really snappy? If you imagine a shark, it is bound to be huge, sneaky, snappy, and cold-blooded. But sharks aren't as bad as you might think. There are roughly five hundred different species of shark in the world, and very few have attacked humans before. Sharks can mistake people for seals on surfboards or take a test bite out of curiosity that won't kill people. Shark attacks sometimes occur, but only about five people die from sharks each year. On the other hand, one hundred and fifty people die every year from falling coconuts! Sharks are much more afraid of us than we are of them. After all, many shark species are already on the red list of threatened animal species, and that's only because humans hunt sharks. Over forty million animals are caught annually as bycatch in the trawls of fishermen. Many of these animals are simply thrown back into the sea dead because they are not needed. Others have their dorsal fins cut off, which are considered a delicacy in China, or their heads are hung up as a trophy. Sharks are cartilaginous fish, which means that instead of real bones, they have a skeleton made of cartilage. The word shark comes from the Icelandic word hai, which means hook and alludes to the hooked tail fin of the shark. The ancestors of sharks swam in our seas four hundred million years ago. Over time, they adapted perfectly to the living space.Today sharks come in all sizes and many colors. The smallest shark is the dwarf lantern shark, which measures only six to eight centimeters; the largest shark, the whale shark, can grow up to twenty meters long. This shark, which can weigh up to twelve tons, only feeds on plankton (small, floating marine animals and algae). Most other sharks, including the great white shark up to seven meters long, eat fish and larger marine animals such as octopus. These predatory sharks mostly eat sick and weak animals and thus keep the oceans in balance. Sharks are true wonders of nature ... The lateral line organ, with which the shark can perceive currents, runs from head to tail. In addition, taste buds are spread over the shark's skin; Sharks can therefore taste prey when they come into contact with the skin. Your olfactory center comprises up to two thirds of the entire brain. The shark can smell a single drop of blood and follow its trail. Sharks have a revolver bite, which means that the teeth are in several rows and constantly grow back. If a shark loses a tooth, a new one pushes in from behind. The mako shark, for example, has up to fifty-four sharp teeth. The swell shark is a member of the dogfish family and its young hatch from eggs. After ten months, the cubs of the swell shark hatch from the thick egg shell that is attached to rocks or seaweed. Almost a third of all sharks lay eggs, the others give birth to live young. 12th

13 The penguins from Madagascar movie tip from When the four penguins known from the Madagascar films are not forced to smile and wave stubbornly at the Central Park Zoo for the visitors, the militarily organized penguin group usually stays in their secret headquarters . There leader Skipper (Tom McGrath) has the authority and forges operational plans, which he works out in advance with tactician Kowalski (Chris Miller). The crazy Rico (John DiMaggio) is responsible for the equipment and the rough stuff. He can only communicate by means of squeaks and grunts, but thanks to his special ability to choke up any objects, he has bailed the group out time and again. Together with Private (Christopher Knights), the gang's sensitive baby, the four penguins are an unbeatable team.

16 Knowledge The magic water glass & the lazy coin You need a glass with water and a postcard for this experiment. You fill your glass with water until it is really full. Make sure the edge is also moistened. Then place the postcard on the glass and quickly turn it over. Then take your hand away. You will see that the water stays in the glass. The air presses against your postcard from below with great pressure and so it stays on your glass. But if you move the postcard around a corner, air will rush into your glass and the water will run out. (This experiment is best tried over the sink or outdoors.) To find out how lazy a coin can be, you need a glass, a playing card, and a coin. Know that all bodies are lazy. When we speak of lazy here, we actually mean laziness. Isaac Netwon found this out. Your body is sluggish, which is why it tips backwards, for example, when you stand in a bus and it pulls away. Your coin is also sluggish! Give it a try and put the playing card with the coin on the glass. If you now snap vigorously at the playing card or pull it away with a jerk, the coin will fall into your glass without you having touched it. The coin takes more time to move than the card. That's why the card is long gone when the coin notices that something is wrong here. 16

That only succeeded at the time because Dr. Cameron McCarthy developed a novel prosthetic tail for the injured dolphin; but the fight is not yet won. Winter's surrogate mother, the very old female dolphin Panama, dies and is the only mate that Winter has ever had.

Schoolchildren delve into exactly what they have learned in class. The tasks are based on the current curricula of the federal states in the elementary school area. The implementation of the subject matter in interactive exercises enables the individual deepening of the school lessons. The pace of learning is determined by the child. This means there is no stress or pressure to perform and the tasks can be repeated as often as desired. Tivola is giving away an annual subscription worth 95.88 euros. Keyword: lernerstieg.de

Creative, practical, stylish: This is LOU, the new children's room lamp from the Dutch company ZAZU. It is tailored precisely to the needs of children, because it is a decorative lamp and a soft night light in one. Particularly clever: the ring shines brighter than the owl and can serve as pleasant general lighting. The owl, on the other hand, gives just enough light to drive away the darkness and is therefore the ideal night light. The brightness of the two lights can be adjusted independently of each other. In addition, each of the light sources has its own automatic switch-off function: the light in the ring switches itself off after 30 or 60 minutes. If the child starts to cry at night, the owl switches itself on for five minutes at a time. LOU is equipped with a USB mini adapter, but can also be operated with batteries (3 x AA, not included). The lamp is optionally available with a light gray, pink or blue owl; the ring is always white. Available from December We are giving away two copies! Keyword: Lou 27
