Water Cycle

image This is Dominicas and mine, it is a diorama of the Water Cycle. First is the Evaporation, which is the sun heating up the water then the water vapours go up into the cloud. Next is the Condensation, which is when the water vapours get heavier and heavier and bigger. Thirdly is the Precipitation, when the water vapours get so heavy the start to fall which is called raindrops. Lastly Collection, is when the water all goes together and it starts all again.

100 word challenge week20.

One nice sunny, stunning day an old bloke was welcomed to sit down on a brown wooden bench, with a statue right next to him not even moving a little muscle. The old man sat down with a big “THUMP”. The bronze statue was staring at a book it looked like magic at one sight but when you looked back it looked alive. The old man got up and went to his pocket to find a wallet, he got the money out and bought it. He read it for a moment, then suddenly “abra cadabra” He shrugged with a spell. He’s back, the cowboy statue is back I say, he’s alive.

The End

HAPPILY EVER AFTER.

My Future

I want to become a singer, but if that doesn’t work out I want to be a veterinarian . I think it would be really cool to be a veterinarian, seeing animals and treating their injuries. I LOVE animals not because they’re cute because I want to see their specialty. I also want to research about them and find their information.

 

Thats My Future, Being A Veterinarian.
