Some AMAZING Facts!

You know how rubbish I am at choosing favourites, so I changed the rules for this challenge - instead of 3 favourite facts, I chose 3 favourite categories!

And here they are -

a) Amazing Facts about Pee and Poo:

1. If a snail eats coloured paper its poo will be that colour and you can make the poo into thread, weave it and even make floor tiles with it!

2. "Hello – I’m a lac beetle. Do you know what I produce? And can you guess what this is used for?
After eating tree sap, I pass a liquid from my bottom that is used on many things, even things you eat!!
Bet you didn’t guess, I produce Shellac!!

This is used to make nail varnish shiny…..
And jelly beans glossy!! Anyone fancy one???"
(from Emilia P1B)

b) Amazing Facts about Colours:

1. Vikings ate purple carrots.

2. An octopus has blue blood.

c) Amazing Facts That I Just Really Liked:

1. Robert Louis Stephenson had a stepson called Lloyd. When he and Lloyd sketched a treasure map together, Lloyd casually suggested how nice it would be to have a book written about it and Robert did just that! Treasure Island.

2. When the Queen Margaret crossing is completed Queensferry will be the only place in the world to have 3 bridges built in 3 consecutive centuries!
