The Twins and the Mouse Plague


Samantha and Luke talk to their parents about mice and their impact on the farm. They also learn about what a mouse census is and how mice get counted, and the difference between native and introduced mice. The twins then talk to their grandmother who tells them a story about a big mouse plague where the mice where everywhere in the farm and in the house.

Looking at his pet mice Luke said, “It is hard to believe that these little creatures could do so much damage. I will be making very sure that my mice do not escape and cause a problem!”
