learn about dolphins.

Dolphin



Have you ever wondered the lifecycle of a dolphin? Dolphins are lovely beautiful sea creatures. Also knowing that some people say that dolphins are more intelligent than humans. They also live up to 40 members and even some larger pods like a schools or herds.


Firstly when an adult dolphin gives birth to live young and suckle( feed their babies using breast or a treat. Also while they are very young they are super strong swimmers immediately. They dolphins also gets nursed for about 1 and a half to 2 years long.

Secondly when they are about 6 months old they can slowly start sncking on seafood, which consists of mainly fish and crustaceans. Also dolphins stays in care with their mothers around 3-8 years.

Thirdly when the dolphin reaches to the age of a puberty, from 3-8 years of age, they start trying to find a mate for themselves. They then start mating period in the spring and the autumn time. When they have finally found the mate for them they have a baby together. They can also live for about 30 years on.

Finally dolphins also have a very sociable life and are very very intelligent sea animals. When dolphins are adults they learn the art of hunting in packs together. They also often start to take off schools of small fish.

So in this explanation i have talked about the life cycle of a dolphin. These dolphins are almost as intelligent as a human are. Dolphins can live around upto 55-60 years. Dolphins are very very intelligent animals that can do quite a lot of tricks.

We got to pick our own topic to write about and i picked dolphins because they are cool intelligent animals and cool looking ones
Hope you like it.

The life cycle of a cicada!



Cicada

Have you ever wondered what a lifecycle of a cicada is? Cicadas are most probably best known for buzzing and clicking noises because of how loud it is. Also sometimes cicadas can be heard from about a mile away.


Firstly After a female cicada  and male cicada finish mating the female lays her eggs on plant tissue. Depending on which species it is these may  be laid in herringbone cuts on  twigs as well as branches. After mating, the female lays her eggs on plant tissues using a sword-like ovipositor.

Secondly the wingless cream coloured nymphs break out from their eggs with two claws and four smaller legs. After it hatches, a cicada’s first years are spent as a nymph. With claw-like forelegs they burrow deep into the ground, where they stay for several years.

Next as the nymphs grow they usually shed their skins usually going through five stages known as the instars. As the nymphs grow they shed their skins, usually going through five stages. The cicadas emerged from years underground to become adults called imago.

Lastly as a nymph reaches maturity it burrows upwards until it is near the surface. Then it emerges from the ground under the cover as darkness. The shocking moment when a cicada breaks through its creepy larva shell to emerge as a fully-grown vivid green adult, has been captured by a photographer.

In this explanation i have gathered information on a cicada about its life cycle. I have learnt heaps from gathering information and putting them into my own words. That stages of a cicada is eggs nymphs metamorphis and last but not least an adult. The life span of a cicada is longer underground then it is above ground.
We have been doing quite a lot of writing and this is the life cycle of a cicada.

Where does our rubbish go?

Where does our rubbish
Go?

Would you like our country to be a pile of dump? Our rubbish is a whole new world. We are wanting to recycle our rubbish so that our world doesn't  become a pile of dump and we would not want to be a dirty country. We can keep our country clean if we recycle our rubbish.

Firstly we put our rubbish into separated bins which is landfill and recycling. Once it gets into the bins it goes into the recycling truck. We should also all be recycling our rubbish.

Secondly the dump truck comes to pick it up from in the rubbish bin and tips it into the dump truck. Then it goes into the ground. It's also a very very deep hole.

Thirdly the dump truck goes to dump the rubbish into the hole. It then has to squish some down to make it fit. Then it goes to get buried. Sometimes rubbish gets burnt, buried or recycled at the dump and also the rubbish truck sometimes squishes it down it self. It can also get chucked down a pipe to go into the deep holes.

Lastly it gets buried and there is around 360 holes that are filled with land filled rubbish. Then the workers start digging more and more holes everyday that are very deep so that all the rubbish can fit. Also sometimes people can be walking over rubbish on fields and beaches.

So in this explanation I am talking about recycling rubbish. This is the life cycle of recycling rubbish (which you should be doing) so I am asure of yous to recycle. Recycle have a clean environment and country. Here is a couple of things to Remember Reduce, Recycle, Reuse.



This is a piece of explanation writing on recycling rubbish and the life cycle of it also on land fill rubbish. HOPE YOU ENJOY!!
