Hypothermia Reading Activite

WALT make inferences
Here is my word map about hypothermia.

Animals Should Not Be Kept In Zoos.

WALT make a claim that is supported by details, reasons and explanations. 

I strongly believe animals should not be kept in zoos.
Animals live a happier life in the wild and they need big environments.
We do not have any rights to breed and capture other animals even if they are endangered. Animals are a living thing just like us, we don't need them kept in separate places away from their family. Animals should be kept in the wild so they have more space to exercise. Animals are very unhappy if they are stuck all day inside their cages at the zoo.

Animals don't need to be feed by the zookeepers. They need to hunt themselves. Babies need to learn to find food and role model to their kids when they grow up. Animals can feed themselves, like we do. Food is very important for them.
We need to make sure they have the right food.

Why do zookeepers keep animals in cages? Animals should be free into the wild where they belong in their NATURAL habitat. I BELIEVE animals should live with their families out of the zoo. I STRONGLY recommend zookeepers should return animals back in the wild.
Like I said, animals live a happier life in their habitat.

We don't need to see animals entertain, they could do just as many tricks in the wild. If we want real entertainment, visit the sanctuary. A true sanctuary does not buy, sell or breed animals. Instead they take in unwanted, exotic pets or injured animals that can no longer survive in the wild. There are lots of places to see animals. For example, birds, we see them all the time, like, in our backyards. Moving on.

Animals don't like to be in public but some pets do. They like to be in their own space where they have privacy. Some animals get very nervous around you, some show off. But people still need to respect their privacy and not threaten them.

Overall animals should not be kept in zoos for the reasons I have stated above, they need to stay where they are in their natural habitat. I need animals to live a happy life.

Orana Park Visit

WALT describe the structures of different communities.
I learnt at Orana Park that giraffes have blue tongues for sun protection.
Giraffes are tall so they can reach the branches in the trees.They also live in groups called herds.
Giraffes have thick tongues for eating thorny branches.

John's Best Friend

WALT write a narrative based on an image 

John's Best Friend

One late and dark night,1955 on Planet Bounce,John woke up and got dressed into his clean lab coat.He simply slipped into his dark brown trousers,while planning to create a big robot.John had no friends so this would be perfect for him.Slowly, he went into his dark dusty basement getting ready to start building.

John could hear the wind twirling around swiftly.He then opened the old and cranky door,got his materials and sorted them out."Where are my tools?"
John wondered."They're not anywhere."
John was sure he had left it in his basement,which he calls HIS LAB.So he went back up to his room to check,then to the kitchen,kitchen to the living room,then finally to the tool room.

Once John had found his TOOLS, he rushed back down to his dusty old basement or should I say HIS LAB to start building."Now where are the light switches?"John asked himself.
Sadly,there were NO switches for the lights.So to solve that problem john used his NEWEST INVENTION! Well Actually,it wasn't his newest invention,it was just a nice lamp bought from the shops.

Finally John had finished building.
"John presents,Mr Vines!"He shouted.
Perfect.He whispered in his head.

John thought,since Mr Vines is his new best friend, it would be great to hang out with him and spend some time with each other.Soon, John left his basement,happily walking to the beautiful Botanic
gardens. Beautiful gold dandelions like shining suns
dotted beside the path,skipping joyfully together, enjoying the daylight, they had a lovely time.
At the end Mr Vines and John ate dinner at the Delighted Dining Restaurant.They were both happy and we're true best friends.
