When all of a sudden

I’ve been waiting for this day for ages since my dad told my brother and I that we were going to the air show.

We left early my dad wanted to miss the traffic. We finally arrive, there are people ever where. We got to meet the piolets and sit in the jet planes I was so excited.

We start watching the show and that’s when I remember to put ear plugs in my ears because of the noise, when all of a sudden an F-22 fly’s over our heads. The hairs on my arms stood up it was so exciting to watch. It was the BEST DAY EVER!!

In the flash of the lightning I saw…

My dad loves going to the beach house in winter so where heading down for a relaxing weekend. The first thing my dad does is light up the fire place, the house is worm in no time.

We decided to take a walk down to the beach, it’s really cold. As where walking the sky starts to get very dark and all of a sudden in the flash of lightning I saw the most magnificent light show. The lightning looked like it was bouncing off the water, within seconds the thunder and rain came. I’m screaming and running all the way home. I HATE THUNDER!!!

Weedy sea dragon

 

Facts:

. Weedy sea dragons can be found in waters off the south and east coast. They are related to the sea horse. They have been around for hundreds of years.

. The marking on the side of a weedy sea dragon becomes a unique fingerprint this is how we can track them.

. Weedy sea dragons are classified near threatened. Scientist believe climate could be the reason in the decline of the weedy sea dragon. They say rising sea temp are killing the kelp which leaves them homeless.

 

Questions:

. What can we do so the temp in the sea water doesn’t rise?

. How do we make people aware of these weedy sea dragons and about global warming?

Wondering:

. It’s amazing how many creatures are out there that we don’t know about. I think it’s great that citizen scientist divers are helping by taking photos and tracking the weedy sea dragons. Help save the weedy sea dragons.

The fast supper

When I saw this picture I thought what a great sculpture. It’s one of my favourite fast food.

I thought the title was interesting, it made me think of a painting my grandparents have on their wall of the Last Supper, which symbolises the last meal.

It looks like the sculpture is made from papier- Mache it’s got these giant hands coming out of a wall holding a hamburger. I think the sculpture is trying to send the message of let a fast food burger be your last enjoyable meal.

Just looking at this picture is making me hungry. “I’m out of here, going to get a burger.”

Facts:

.Tassie devils population has been cut by more than 80%, they have made it onto the endangered species list.

.It’s believed that the decline is due to a cancer that is contagious. The cancer spreads when they bite each other and the tumour builds up around their face. This stops them from eating so they end up dying of starvation, they usually have about 6 months to live.

.Scientists believe that extinction is a real possibility.

 

Questions:

.Is the government doing anything to improve this situation?

.Is there anything that people can do to help?

 

Wondering:

.It’s amazing how an animal that we had many of can become extinct due an illness. I think the government should invest more time in caring for these animals and maybe fund for more clinics and breeding programs.

Wore on Waste

Facts:

.They are a top-selling food, but every day millions of good bananas are thrown away. Coles and Woolworths, won’t buy bananas that are too bent, too straight, too long, short fat or skinny.

.Over 80 million that farmers grow, they are forced to throw out more than 30 million.

.Food waste in landfill creates greenhouse gases 25 times more dangerous than car fumes.

 

Questions:

.Who made up all these rules that bananas need to be a certain shape or size?

. Do you think that supermarkets should still buy these bananas and see if consumers will buy them?

 

Wondering:

. I don’t think consumers had any idea that millions of bananas were being thrown out. There are so many people in the world that are starving and supermarkets are worried about the look of a banana. Let’s not waste perfectly good bananas.

WIDE   ORANGE   CROCODILE   WITHIN   COLLAPSED

As I was paddling down the river in a wide open gorge in my kayak. Something caught my eye; a big orange sombrero. So I decided to paddle towards it and retrieve it. As I grabbed the sombrero a crocodile leaped out of the water. Before I knew it he had me firmly grasped within its powerful jaws. The pain was that excruciating that I passed out and collapsed in my kayak. When I finally came to, I realized I was in a hospital and had been rescued and saved from the crocodile’s powerful jaws.
