Me in a minute


Me in a minute is all about doing an activity and improving in the next time you try to beat your score in every thing on the sheet. We are doing this because our inquiry topic is Mighty Me. Which is all about keeping a healthy mind and body.

These are my results……..

My goal for next time is to get 10 or more in the tennis ball in the target and achieve more shots from the free throw line.
I will achieve this by practice sometimes at home and slowing down my shots instead of going fast. I hope in 2 weeks I can get half way.

Zoos are essential persuasive


Imagine being separated from your family to live in a lonely depressing cage all alone. Well, this is what happens to animals locked up in a cage. It’s like going to jail for doing nothing wrong. You come home to your house where you know your safe, but at a zoo your always moving places and you will never meet a another animal again.

There is know doubt that keeping animals in cages is outrageous. In a zoo that is know as death zoo 25 animals die each month because of poorly treated and starved to death there has been a lot of protesting that this zoo should be shut down and the animals should be transported to a better location and environment. Marius the giraffe has been being sold between people who don’t have the place for them to stay Marius was sold for 74,592 dollars. It also happened to a zebra a buyer came up and said I have extra space in my stable which isn’t a space for that type of animal it is not a horse. You are stuck in a cage in captivity only for people’s pure entertainment and education.

You are enjoying your day in the wild with your family. Then people come charging into your home and take you and your family away and you have no chance of seeing them again. Most of the time you are separated from your family at a very young age. It scares them and if they were ever to be let back into the wild. Your skills are gone and you don’t have much chance of survival especially if you are on the bottom of the food chain.

And for last all you can see is walls nothing to see beyond them brick walls and one for people to stare at you. Your not in your natural habitat it is just a replica of what it might be like. You would get bored and the rate of happiness from a animal in a zoo is a lot lower then when there in there natural place.

Now I am 100% sure that you are convinced that animals should be released back into the wild and zoos are definitely not essential to our lives. When you do go to a zoo take in heaps of consideration if the animals and what they have to live through day to day in there daily life.
