Chuckle Buckle’s Chuckling Bucket

chuckle-clown.jpg

Chuckle Buckle had a bucket. It disappeared one day, but he didn’t know who’d took it. He collected pebbles in it, but some fell out when he shook it. Chuckle Buckle chuckled so much that the handle fell off it out of his clutch ! When Chuckle Buckle chuckled some more, some sand from the sandcastle he was building fell onto the floor. Chuckle Buckle chuckled again and suddenly his bucket started collecting some rain. Chuckle Buckle chucked in a stone, then with all his chuckling, it fell out, gone to Felixstone. It was the most chuckling pebble that had ever been known. Of course, with all Chuckle’s chuckling, everything was dropped ! Chuckle Buckle chuckled a lot – just to see what would fall from the pot. From his bucket out a frog popped. Within minutes, in a puddle it had plopped. Chuckle’s chuckling caused such a SPLASH ! Everyone was soaked as quick as a flash. The bucket flew right into the air and soon there was water everywhere ! Ever since then, Chuckle was known as a drip, all because of the water splash that happened when he tripped ! But he was still so busy chuckling, he hardly noticed that he’d slipped !

bucket.jpg 4. Chuckle Buckle’s bucket soon got a big hole. Hardly surprising that out fell a piece of coal ! If the hole was 10 cm wide, how much spare room was there around the piece of coal which measured 7.5 cm ?

bucket.jpg 5. If one piece of coal weighed 25 grams, how many pieces of coal were being carried in Chuckle Buckle’s bucket if it weighed 5 kg ?
