Animal Facts by Gabe

Gabe is writing daily chapters about animals. He tries to research through a variety of media (animal shows on tv and non-fiction books). Here is Chapter 3.

On Chapter 3, The King Cobra

The king cobra has a lot of very much poison. One time if you get bitten by a king cobra you die.

The man in this grave, he got bit by a king cobra.


Chapter 6 The Great White Shark

The Great White shark can live at Africa in the ocean.

Any time when the great white shark sees a person, it explodes out and strikes.


Rockets by Dawson

Rockets are awesome. They go to space. Since the gravity from earth pulls the spaceship down, it needs rocket boosters.

The rocket boosters push it into space. In space there’s no gravity so it can release them. They land in the water. There’s a boat waiting with a crane. It picks them up then they can be reused. When the rocket is finished the gravity from earth pulls it in.

It has a parachute to stop it. It also has wheels. It needs special tiles because the atmosphere could make it catch fire with these.

Cheetahs by Eli B.

I like cheetahs. They can outrun a car. Cheetas are fast. Cheetahs go fast because they rest a long time.

Lions and hyenas sometime steal a cheetah’s meal. Cheetahs live in savanas.

Cheetahs are like¬†camouflage because in the tall grass, you can’t see them and then they jump out on their prey. It’s prey is gazelles.

Eli G.’s story (The last of the I Spy series!)

Can you find two presents? Can you find two stockings?

Can you find thirteen ornaments? Can you find a toy train?

You are good at I Spy. You found all these things.

This is a Christmas I Spy. I like I Spy. It is fun.

The stockings are hanging on something. The ornaments are hanging on the Christmas tree.

The train is on the ground. The presents are yellow and blue.
