Week of March 11
Our Leprechaun reporter, Paddy O’Brien, likes small things. This St. Patrick’s Day he introduces Kid Scoop readers to the world’s tiniest monkey, the Pygmy Marmoset. It grows to be only about 3.5 ounces (100 grams), about the weight of a deck of cards! Cute and tiny, this little monkey is a high interest topic around which we will provide language arts and math activities.
