James whale fantasia

Hi my name is Carter and I'm a diver in the Pacific Ocean. I got told to find a massive shipwreck with treasure.There was a legend that whoever gets it will be rich forever and will get a good job. Oh what I dream to have a mansion, five dogs, one cat and thirty hamsters.

My friend is also a diver, he just got bitten by a hammerhead shark. The blood was making the sea red and I was frightened.“AHHHHHHH” came a cold chill voice from another diver, a big great white just gulped him down.

A shark is swimming faster and faster and coming right towards me. An orca hit his black and white head at the grey monster.I see a whole lot of orcas, I could go but I didn’t. I touched the orca’s smooth skin. Then I went home and watched TV.

100 word challenge the flash

The Flash is about someone who got hit by lightning

The Flash

I was a hitchhiker in someone's Lamborghini going 100 miles per hour, then all of a sudden lightning struck my exhaust pipe.The car did a triple backflip into a cave and the person in the car broke his back and neck -  he was dead, I gasped.

I decided to go deeper into the cave, I saw something glistening like greenstone. It was a crystal with lightning flashing out of it.

weeks later, I was a professional rock climber for the finals. I had to climb up the same mountain and I got hit by lightning again, fell and died.

The Moa

The Moa
Sourced from: arbs
This task is about reading to find information and make inferences. Read the article below then answer the questions that follow.

Nobody today has seen a live moa – the bird is extinct.

The things we know about the moa come from accounts left by people who saw it in the past, and from the studies of scientists.File:Moa skeleton.JPG

Thousands and thousands of moas have lived and died here, but their bodies have all rotted away long ago. In order to find out how the moa looked and lived, scientists must study the things which are still left – mainly bones.

As well as the bones, people often find little heaps of stones which came from the bird's gizzard. The moa swallowed these stones to help grind up its food. And in very dry parts of New Zealand, people have even found skin and feathers, still stuck to dried-up moa bones.File:Hunting Moa - rotated.jpg

If you have been to a museum, you may have seen a model of a moa. The model has been built by using all this information as a guide.

Model-building is not very difficult to do. We have lots of moa bones. If you put a set of bones together to make a skeleton, you then have a shape of the bird.

There are places on the bones which show where the muscles should go. You can model the muscles from a plastic material and put them on to the skeleton. Then you put a skin over it.Other resolutions: 160 × 240

It is more difficult to find the right sort of feathers. Most models use emu feathers. The moa feathers which have been found look soft and droopy, like emu feathers. But they have more colour than those of the emu – they are golden-brown, with a purple streak down the middle.

Even so, these feathers may be faded. Some early Maori, who were asked about moas, said that they had bright, bright feathers. It may be that the moa was more brightly coloured than the models that you see in the museum.
