Ants in your pants
Ant, ants, ants in your pants. Ants, ants, crawling over flowering plants. Long, long ago when dinosaurs still had a chance, ants and flowering plants may have done quite a dance.

Icy volcano on saturn's moon
Saturn is a planet that almost everyone knows about--it's the one with the pretty stripes and all the rings. Last year a little spaceship about the size of a short school bus flew really close to one of Saturn's moons called Enceladus. The spaceship Cassini was packed with lots of tools to help scientists get a good look at the faraway moon.

Chimps try to help
How many people have you helped today? Did you help your brother find his shoes before school? Did you lend a pencil to your best friend in math class? Did you help your soccer coach put away the balls after practice? If you did, you must be a human. Humans are some of the most helpful animals around. We lend a hand to our family, our friends, sometimes even strangers. Other animals aren't even close to being that helpful--or are they?
