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.

I Just Couldn’t Eat Something so

I’m having dinner at my auntie’s house and she’s making lasagne like my nonna makes it and I love my nonna’s lasagne.

I’m so excited I’ve been looking forward to this lasagne. I take my first bite it doesn’t taste the best. My nonna’s lasagne is beautiful, she makes her own pasta, the sauce she makes is delicious and when you slice into the layers the cheese just stretches out. My auntie’s lasagne seems dry, the sauce isn’t right and the cheese isn’t stretchy.

Thank god my cousins have a dog. I just couldn’t eat it so I kept calling the dog over and feeding her my food. No one realised what I was doing.

Animal Extinction

Facts:

.Animals are becoming extinct at rates not seen since the death of dinosaurs.

.Since Europeans came to Australia 23 birds, 4 frogs and 27 mammal species have become extinct.

.One study showed that up in the Kakadu National Park 95% of the mammals that used to be there aren’t there anymore.

Question:

. Is there something more that the government should do to stop animals from being extinct?

.Should there be laws that stops people going hunting and killing animals just for fun?

Wondering:

.This is a big problem and we don’t want animals to become extinct. It shouldn’t just be up to the government to do something, it should also be up to us people to look after the animals and not take land and cut down trees from them. Let’s protect the animals.!!

Fidget Spinner

The world has gone crazy!! There’s a new gadget out there and everyone wants one. It’s the new craze and it’s called a fidget spinner.

They say it’s a stress relieving toy but I think it’s a lot of fun seeing how long it can spin for. It come in all different shapes and sizes some can even glow in the dark.

My mum bought me one I went back half an hour later to get one for my and they had sold out. I couldn’t believe it they were gone.

My mum said to me someone is making a lot of money from this. It’s amazing how something so small can be the most popular thing around.
