Common neuter case nouns please

Hi, I have to write some sample phrases for my homework and I would like to know a few more -o (or ę) nouns, as in class we have only learnt about six, and as everyone has the same homework...

so far we have biurko, okno, krzesło, naswisko, imię, pisklę and dziecko

any suggestions for common nouns - we are working on the genitive so I have to be able to say Czyj to jest whatever?

Dziękuję,

Mel

Mmmm.. not a lot of scope;;; our teacher did say they were quite rare: I'm hardly likely to be asking whose mud it is!

Is that calf the animal?

I should be OK with "moje ciastro" and "moje dziecię",

ok in a muzeum, there are loads of them.

Somewhere we have already discussed that the polish word muzeum is a Polish singular neuter noun.
