Zoo babies

My animal poem


My animal is an elephant
It’s trunk is big and long
It stomps wobbling with each step
Its skin is rough and gray
It is huge, bigger than me!
Their feet look like they could squish anyone
They sound like BBBBBRRRRRRRR









This week we read Zoo babies and we had write a poem about a endangered animal, my endangered animal is a elephant because it is being hunted for there tusks.

The Zoo


The elephant swings it’s rough wrinkled trunk as it stomps and sways side to side as it goes to chomp on it’s ball full of fresh hay. The elephants huge enclosure has a whole hill of hay sweeping swiftly to the side leaving traces of hay behind. The grey skin of the elephant looks like a dark cloud on a stormy day.


The muddy icky Galapagos turtle trudged through the  warm mud bath naturally heated by the sun and stretched it’s neck out like a giraffe and snapped cause of their powerful jaw at the dead dry grass growing by the fence.Their skin looked as wrinkled as a old lady, the brown dried mud stuck to the turtle, making it’s skin look super dry.  

As we were wandering round the emus we all looked stared at this very weird creature and it stared at us.Rachael kept saying “I’m so scared it is going to hop out and peck at us,” as we were taking photos.



Last Friday we went to the zoo and we were in groups and we got to see every thing and we learned alot.

Sarah's wildself

 

African wild dog ears - Your African wild dog ears are big so that they can give off heat and keep your body cool. That's good, because where African wild dogs live, it's hot.

Grevy's zebra hoofs - Get up and running. Grevy's zebras can stand up just six minutes after being born and can run after just 45 minutes. How long did it take you to learn to walk?

Lion's mane jelly - Imagine having no eyes or brain but still having one of the most sophisticated weapons on earth. Lion's mane jellies have tentacles over 100 feet long, each one packed with tiny harpoons that inject prey with deadly toxins.

Lesser bird of paradise wings - Your beautiful and elegant wings are from a bird of paradise. Most birds of paradise live in Papua New Guinea, where they're so revered the nation's flag bears their likeness.

African lion tail - You have a dark brown tuft of hair on the end of your African lion tail. It helps you communicate. You can use it for lion sign language to talk to other members of your pride.


This term we are learning about adaptions of animals. The class is creating their own Wildself.
