Camels, Deserts and Adaptation


Adaptation is when change happens. The desert is dry and hot. Deserts have a little bit of water and can be really sandy. Camels have adapted to the hot desert.

Deserts are very hot and dry and the wind blows sand all around. Deserts have some brown looking trees. The Sahara desert is the biggest hot desert in the world. We have different types of deserts.

Camels live in the desert and sleep in the sand. They have brown eyes and eyebrows. They put fat in their hump, they can go along time with no food. Their feet are big so they can walk on the sand. Camels have many adaptations so they can live in the desert. Camels have long eyelashes it has nostrils that can open and close. The long eyelashes keep sand out of the camel's eyes. Thick eyebrows protect the eyes from the sand.

In conclusion deserts are sandy, really hot and have a little bit of rain. Camels have lots of adaptations and change to fit the desert. Many animals adapt to their environment.

why team sports are important Speech

Learning new skills, making new friends, having fun with a group of people and getting exercise all at the same time. Have you guessed what I am talking about? If you guessed team sports then you’d be right! Team sports are important because you learn many new things at the same time like ball skills and meeting new friends, following the rules all while staying fit and healthy. The team sport I like to play is soccer because I have learnt some amazing skills like rainbow flick, which is a fancy kick. I can juggle with my feet and I have learnt to do a header with a ball. If I didn’t play soccer I wouldn’t have learnt all these skills . You can meet and make lots of new friends when you play a team sport. It is important to have good friends as they make our lives fun and happy. Friends I have made through playing soccer are Chris, Aiden and Reshi. They are great team mates and we all like playing soccer together. Team sports keeps you fit and healthy because you are running around outside in the fresh air getting lots of exercise. Team sports will make our bodies stronger and we can run for a long time. Running makes our legs stronger for kicking the ball. Being fit and healthy helps our bodies and our brains to work properly. I strongly believe that it is important to play a team sport. This is because team sports teach you new skills, team sports help you to make great friends and playing a team sport helps to keep your brain and body fit and healthy. I love to play soccer, what team sport will you play? Abel sunil

I Think people should travel to New Zealand.
  • Family
  • Friends
  • Strangers
  • People who do not live in New zealand
-Because it is really peaceful
- Because it has a sky tower
- We should represent the Maori
- We remember and celebrate and represent the people in the war
- We have lot’s of good  hospitals and have the correct medication for you.
  1. ANZAC day is a  day where we remember people from the war.
  2. We wear poppies and eat anzac biscuits and sing the national anthem.
  3. When you go to the sky tower you have a good view of the city.
  4. In NZ we have lot’s of good places for good views like the sky tower.

  1. Because the weather heavy rain/floods rain is good and feeds the plants.
  2. Rent hoteles are too expensive you can go to a motel,stay with family and friends.
  3. A Lot of people do bad things you can call police.
  4. The food is really expensive. The food is still delicious.
  5. The stationary is really expensive you can get the second
