Word Games

Did you know that a group of goats is called a 'tribe' or a 'trip' ? (Aren't they cute!! They're the neighbor kids.)

...a group of horses belonging to a single owner is called a 'stud'...'s a 'warren' of rabbits...

...a 'kindle' of kittens...(although Lionel and Tuppence don't really qualify)...

...a 'herd' of cows, of course (Yeah, we all know that, but I liked my photo of the pretty neighborhood Holsteins.) :-)

So, do you know which animal [groups] the following terms refer to?
  • A Crash
  • A Sounder
  • A Prickle
  • A Scurry
  • A Streak
  • A Business
  • A Shrewdness (no kidding!)
  • A Cackle
  • A Bloat
Just for fun...and I thought that you might like to try this little quiz out on your kids!

Have you got any others to add to the list?

I can't think of a thing but your animal photos are wonderful. (I think you covered it all.) Thanks for sharing.
Oh, I just remembered one...I of fish. Hmmm, I wonder if they have a teacher?!
