My Wild Self

This week for Inquiry we have been learning about pond animals and their adaptations here are some of my wild self's adaptations:
African Lion mane - Looking good! Male African lions use their thick, dark manes to attract mates.

Asian elephant ears - Do bigger ears mean better hearing? In this case, yes. Your Asian elephant ears can hear other elephants miles away by feeling for vibrations.

Crab eye stalks - Your crab eye stalks allow you to see things above and below you at the same time.

Octopus arms -Octopus tentacles are covered suckers that are sensitive not only to touch, but also to taste, so can you grope around for food in small, dark crevices.

Indian ornamental tarantula legs - Danger! Danger! The bright yellow markings on your Indian ornamental tarantula legs are a warning. They're meant to tell attackers to stay away. You're venomous!

Radiated tortoise shell - Why is your Radiated tortoise shell shaped like a dome? Scientists think the shell's shape helps tortoises flip over whenever they get stuck on their back.

Describing the beach

Green trees grew their roots deep into the rocky cliff but the leaves are towering over the burning sand. The four leafy tree are from smallest to biggest. In the distance on the horizon there are tiny islands waiting to be explored. From the entrance to the cove it is pitch dark, and on the high ceiling it is dripping with salty water. The sea is crashing onto the sand with an amazing force.

The salty adour of the ocean drifts the air but is overpowered by the stinky stench of the rotting shellfish. Very faintly all of the smell of the freshness of trees and grass hovered in the air. The air is filled with the lovely smell of fish and chips that made birds of all kind approach.

The gust of strong wind blows the gigantic trees making them sway from side to side. Leaves of all size and shape get blown off the tree and into peoples faces. Heat from the sun radiates off the sand like a heater on full power. Standing in the shallow, waves that can drown cars onto the sand and retreat endlessly.

What a fabulous place to spend the weekends with friends. It is such a good place to be. Would you want to go to the amazing beach with your families. ( I would accept that amazing offer if I were you )

In this piece of writing I think I did very well describing. I think I need to improve on writing new words.
