Helen Keller’s Pet

Fly around the World!
“A honey bee can fly for up to six miles, and as fast as 15 miles per hour, hence it would have to fly around 90,000 miles—three times around the globe—to make one pound of honey. [Though, the] average honey bee will actually make only one twelfth of a teaspoon of honey in its lifetime.” LINK

Outer Space Scavenger Hunt
“An American astronaut Rick Mastracchio (AstroRM) enters the Geocaching history books. He logged the First-to-Find (FTF) on one of the most exclusive geocaches in existence. It’s a geocache hidden…aboard the International Space Station. The geocache has orbited 260 miles above the Earth since geocaching pioneer and video game designer Richard Garriott created the geocache in 2008.” LINK
What is geocaching, you ask? It’s basically a world-wide treasure hunt. How cool is that?! The app I use is the original: Geocaching.
Have a great week, and stay tuned for next Monday’s five!
