Willy comes to visit

We all know where Willy Wop and his family live. Well, surprise! surprise! Daddy Wop is going to bring Willy Wop to come and visit us!

They have to go all the way through the forest. They have to follow the winding trail on the other side of the forest. Then they must go over the hill and follow the long, narrow path down the hill until they come to the deep, deep river. There they must find the raft, which is hidden in the long grasses so that they can cross the river. We will meet Willy at the river and take him to our homes to spend a few days with us.

  • We will have to plan Willy’s holiday carefully.

1. What kind of games would you play with such a little forest boy?

2. Will you also take him fishing?

3. Which games do you play that will be new to Willy?

4. How will you take Willy to other places?

5. What do you think Willy will say about all these new experiences?

Willy goes visiting.

The little bird said:

“Good morning, dear Willy, my friend”,

As he sat on the branch of a tree,

“Where are you going so early this morning?”

And Willy said:

“Good morning, little bird in the tree,

I’m visiting my friends in the city.”

And Sammy the Snake said:

“Good afternoon, dear Willy, my friend,”

As he lay in the sun on the stone,

“Why do you climb this hill so high?”

And Willy said:

“Good afternoon, Sammy, up there on the stone,

I’m visiting my friends and they’re far from home.”

And the frog said: “Good evening, dear Willy, my friend,”

As he sat on the log in the river,

“Where are you sailing to on your raft?”

And Willy said:

“Good evening, little green frog in the river,

I’m visiting my friends and I’m beginning to shiver.”

With a wave of his hand

He set off to the land

Where his friends were waiting for him.


  • What time of day did he meet the bird? the snake? the frog?

nanopartical of organic/inorganic / physical chemistry , pdf / thesis / review
what are the products of Nano chemistry?
Maira Reply
There are lots of products of nano chemistry... Like nano coatings.....carbon fiber.. And lots of others..
Even nanotechnology is pretty much all about chemistry... Its the chemistry on quantum or atomic level
no nanotechnology is also a part of physics and maths it requires angle formulas and some pressure regarding concepts

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
yes that's correct
I think
Nasa has use it in the 60's, copper as water purification in the moon travel.
