“So, what lies ahead of us” “I don’t no but what I do no is these aliens are going to keep coming back at us until the human race is no longer in existence.” ” Well I’m not so down to fight these guys anymore” “c’mon you and me are all our country has got to put up a fight against these guys.” ” How many more aliens can they put up against us because they can’t have an unlimited amount can they?” “No they can’t but they have a lot more than we do and I mean a lot.”
Nobody knows how long they have been there some people say since god was alive others say a couple of yr=ears and it goes on with people assuming things. One day I woke up very curious of when the footprints and the shoe had been there. I walked over to the golf course to take a good look at the shoe and the footprint. From what I can see the shoe looks new and you can see the bottom shoe print in the shoe marks. So I assume it is from this week.
I was in my plant in the ocean trying to get to sleep but my tail kept slipping out in to the open ocean. In the ocean at night the big whales and sharks come out and rob you and on my tail I have a very priceless ring that my dad gave me just before he died. The ocean is a little different to the normal world it is always light and if it goes dark then well actually I don’t know what would happen it hasn’t happened in 267 years then suddenly it went dark…
As it came rushing towards us we turned around and did not stop running me and my friends where screaming for help but I was just thinking to myself run as fasts and as far away from the dog as you can. I looked back and saw my friends right on my tail and then the dog following them. I tried to examine the dog and see if I new what type it was. From what I can see it is a Pit Bull cross Rhodesian Ridgeback as soon as I think of those two dogs they aren’t the best mix for a dog.
Today was my lucky day the one day of the year I could stretch my legs and have arest from all the mayhem. It was my birthday. Us seals never ever get a day off the only day we do get off is uor birthday. Yes that is right our president makes us work day and night. But even better my best friend Kevin has the axact same birthday so me and him always hang out on our special day. Well dont you think I told you enough about my life now go away and let me enjoy my sleep.
It was my favourite shop to go to I was stocked up on money so I could spend all I want on cushions. My favourite type of cushion is what they call a scarlet red print cushion. But in the corner of my eye I saw the old cranky annoying lady giving me the death stare. She started walking over to me a little quicker than she does to normal people and then a rushed over to the next door violin store and went into the bathroom. The last time I saw that lady I got kicked out for no reason.
It was the last day of middle school forever so me and my mates decided to take a day off. We all met up at the local milk bar like always and the shopkeeper had already gotten our medium vanilla milkshake. For some reason all our stupid little pea sized size brain decided to go to the abandoned tunnel. (Quick note about the tunnel a person named Freddie went into that tunnel a couple of years ago and never returned). We started to walk through the tunnel slurping up the last but of our milkshake when the flash made me……
Well where do I start, ahh here we go when all of a sudden BANG… Then everything went black and nothing happened for a very long time. Then something happened 1050 years later a light appeared and then another and another and another. There was no explanation for them they just appeared. They didn’t stop appearing it was like stars in the night sky appearing everywhere. Finally instead of a shiny gold light it was a blue light and it was the biggest light it stood out the most. Ok kids enough story time it’s bed time.
I rubbed my eyes harder than I have ever rubbed them before thinking that it was a dream or it wasn’t real but nothing worked. I grabbed my drink bottle and put water on my face expecting to wake up but nothing happened. The only thing that happened was more and more horses from the carousel where jumping into the open air and vanishing into the wild. I sprinted as fast as I could to the closest horse and jumped on and grasped the horse and ducked my head and hoped for the best.
In this unit my partner and I did a big project about thorny devils. This unit was really fun because I got to explore around the internet and find useful websites for our animal. This also was really good to work on collaboration skills and trust. The reason why because you have to trust your partner to do work and also you have to collaborate to get the work done in time.
In this unit I learned a lot about adaptations and there are 2 types’ structural adaptations and behavioural adaptations. Adaptations is what helps something live. Adaptations form depending on the environment so it can live. This is related to science because the animal can change over time to adapt to the environment. One of the adaptation for the thorny devil is that the thorny devil can squirt blood out of its eyes on to the preditor.
Science Inquiry Skills:
I predicted that in the science part of the unit the sponge would be about the same weight as the piece of wood because the wood was heavier from the beginning but the sponge would absorb more water.
Personal & Social Capabilities:
Personal strengths have really helped because when you have to talk to your partner and maybe have to give them some negative feedback.
3 2 1 Reflection: (key: 3 facts you found interesting-RED 2 understandings-Blue 1 question-green
I found some really interesting things about the thorny devil including it can squirt blood out of its eyes. The Thorny devil can run in a unique motion because of the boiling hot sand. It is known as the weirdest of the lizard family. It also has conical spikes all over its body. I now understand that this is a small creature in the dessert but has lots of adaptations to adapt in the environment. Another thing I know understand is it has a fake head with 2 big conical spikes and also conical spikes all over he’s or she’s body. My question that I still have about the thorny devil is when it squirts blood out of its eyes where does the blood come from.
In term 2 we (me and Stavros) did a presentation on the Thorny Devil. Some of the most important thing I learned was mainly about working I partners and sharing around the work. I learned this because I was working with Stavros for the whole project and developed better communication skills. I think I am going to use the new skills that I have now to help me in later life or the next time I work with a partner.
A wrap up of the unit:
Well the long stressful unit is over, but it wasn’t all like that lots of it was packed with fun like the model and the diorama. I enjoyed finding out facts about the thorny devil and working with a partner. To be honest the hardest part was the reflection but at the end of the day we all know we had a lot of fun doing the whole thing. It was fun doing all the work with a partner though and you might even got to know them.
