W.A.L.T: create a slide about tundra's containing information about features, plants and animals with a habitat and an animal at the end.
I think I did an awesome job at giving information but need to work on better ideas for the map.

W.A.L.T: Envite people to NewZealand by describing Piha beach and we are learning to use two words we have never used before.
Come to NewZealand !
The wave clashes against the jagged rocks. A mountain stands statuesqe against the sillhouette. Alluringly, the clear water reaches for the sand and a vast body of aqua liquid circles around. Tranquility roams around the vicinity. Topaz rays glare at the sea and the welcoming beach is congested with swimmers, surfers and snorkelers.
I think I did an awesome job at describing but need more detail.
What are freshwater ecosystems?
What are freshwater ecosystems? Not only do they contain freshwater but also plants and wildlife. A freshwater ecosystem is a habitat and one of the many eco systems around, it contains life and survival for different species and has many plants around it even though we keep polluting it non-stop. It even has lots of characteristics found not only around but inside the area too. Lakes, ponds, rivers, wetlands,marsh and springs are all freshwater biomes, Depth,rate of flow,the temperature and the quality of the freshwater biomes are characteristics of the freshwater biome.
\There are many different plants like duckweed, water lilies and algae float on the surface while reeds and cattails live on the shoreline. There are also bladderworts which are carnivorous plants. Have you ever known the depth, rate of flow, temperature and quality of the freshwater biome affects the plants that live in this ecosystem. These plants survive in a few creative ways. One of which is in fast streams and rivers many plants have special structures that keep them from being carried away by the water. Some aquatic plants have strong roots that keep them where they are, while others have stems that bend easily with the movement of the water. Certain mosses are able to cling to rocks. Plants who live in still waters have different adaptations.
There are also many different species of animals living in a freshwater habitat. Some of which are dragonflies, fish, reptiles, crabs and mammals such as the rare pink freshwater dolphin found in the Amazon river. There are also leeches. There are also many parasites such as the tongue louse, nematodes and water fleas. Some need the movement of the stream or river water to survive. In fast moving waters animals that have to hold onto rocks and the bottom may have suction-cup like structures on their bodies. Others thrive in still water environments, like lakes. There are a variety of fish, birds, insects, amphibians, and crustaceans aswell. Did you know that as humans we pollute the freshwater biomes nearly every single day when washing cars, littering and having livestock living near it. We also need the water we pollute for drinking but as day by day vanishes the water amount decreases and the animals die. An average human drinks at least 3 litres a day.
I think we put enough detail but need to put more important complex information.
Taylor I want you to meet forest,but be careful forest can be a very dangerous person. One time one of his children lurked up to me and nearly bit me. By the way don’t offend him, he’s really emotional and causes a lot of mess when he is down in the dumps. We moved our house here and it cost an arm and a leg.”
I have spoke to forest and he seems to like you so I want you to come with me, please and did you know when he sneezes lime, green hair showers me and this gust of wind hits me. When he’s happy these multi-coloured fruits grow on him. Monkeys love back rides on his back.By the way his bushy hair ripped of once and hit my head. Have you ever seen spiders climb on him and these fluttering owls going inside him.
By Aaliya and Risa!I think we could use more language features but we were great at using personification.

The Guarded Archway!
Vast clusters of ice loom ominously over the deep expanse of water. Gripping the lone bottom of the ocean, the crumbling pillars stand crowded in a line, single file. The steep bridge of ice perches at the mountain top unsteadily ready to collapse harshly into the intimidating body of water. Soon icebergs emerging everywhere floating across to the last chunks still standing tall and brave on the isolated land. No inhabitants can be seen but the feeling of terrorising coldness swarming around. The guarded archway no longer visible on the grand, blank page. No birds were identified soaring past. What will the future bring?

Vast clusters of ice loom ominously over the broad,unhospitable expanse of water. The extensive mountains stand like soldiers in the backround. Gripping the deserted bottom of the ocean, the decaying pillars stand crowded in a line, single file. The steep bridge of ice perches at the mountain top unsteadily;ready to collapse harshly into the intimidating body of water. Soon frigid icebergs emerging everywhere sailing across to the last chunks still standing erect; tall and brave on the isolated land. No inhabitants nearby but the feeling of terrorising coldness swarming around. The guarded archway now no longer visible on the grand, blank page. What sort of future will befall this piece of scenery?
I think I need to work on more similes and metaphors and I think I used an awesome amount of adjectives.
