100 word challenge- wide orange crocodile within collapsed

0

I was at the zoo eating an orange-flavoured lolly when the tragedy happened. That poor, poor crocodile. It just collapsed! Oh? What’s that? OK, I’ll tell you how this happened. As I said before, I was at the zoo eating an orange-flavoured lolly and looking at the crocodile enclosure. There was an old crocodile who looked about 90. Suddenly he collapsed within his exhibit! It was so sad. I asked the zookeeper if he was going to live……… but he said no. And that brings me to here, crying alone in my room.

This video was about how long the average lifespan is. People now are generally living longer than any other time in history. The longest most humans will live for is around 115 years. The oldest person to have ever lived was aged 122. Will scientists ever discover/make a pill that lets you live forever? Where did the term ‘kick the bucket’ come from? We will live longer in the future.

The pile of snails sat in front me. How could anyone expect me to eat that!? I just couldn’t eat something so disgusting! With their crunchy shells and slimy inside… I couldn’t even look at them. Me and my mum were visiting France, and in case you didn’t know, FRENCH PEOPLE EAT SNAILS! I mean, what the hell? Anyway, I knew I had to eat them or I wouldn’t get desert. And we were having custard and chocolate pudding for desert; my FAVOURITE. Well, if I don’t eat them then I won’t get any desert, so I decided to give it a try. I opened my mouth and lowered one in…

This video was about the debate whether primary school kids should have homework or not. Some researchers say that homework doesn’t give kids better grades when they’re older. Some schools don’t have homework. Richard Walker wrote a book saying that less homework is better. How do the kids in schools that don’t have homework feel about homework? Do they want it or not? It would be pretty cool if you were in a school didn’t even have homework!

100 word challenge- …the slime dripped through…

I was slowly melting, turning into a liquid before my eyes. First my feet, now my legs! It felt like I had been in a swimming pool for a year and then had acid shot at me. And the really bad news was that I was standing on a drain! I had tried to run away from it but since my legs were melted I couldn’t move. This was all because of Dr. Dinkum! He blasted me with his weird gun and now I’m stuck here! But that was an hour ago. Geez, it’s taking a long time for me to melt all the way. Finally, as the slime dripped through the drain, I said my prayers and waved goodbye to the world. It was time for me to go.

A group of scientists are trying to get Pluto back as a planet. They say that we should classify planets by their characteristics, not by their size or location. Why do they want to bring back Pluto? How many scientists were on the project? There is a lot more celestial bodies than I thought. (110)

Goal: To use words I don’t use often.

I will highlight the words I don’t use often.

In this paragraph I will explain to you about the magic of books. Books are fantastic. They are wondrous things. They bring stories to life! And today I will tell you about one particular book, that literally brings a story to life. This book has magical powers. If the reader opens it and reads the first sentence aloud, it will engulf the reader in a huge storm, then teleport it inside the book. The reader will be teleported to a pirate ship, and be held prisoner forever. The only way to get out of the book is to get the spyglass from the captain. How do I know all this? This stuff once happened to me.

I can’t believe it. I’m actually fighting Medusa. In case you don’t know, Medusa is a lady who has snakes for hair and she turns people to stone if they look into her eyes. She is a Greek myth. Or so I thought. But I guess she can’t be a myth if I’m fighting her right now. Anyway, I’m battling her with my sword when suddenly she grabs hold of me and forces me to look into her eyes. I grab my mirror just as she turns me to stone. We both turn to stone and even to this day now, you can still see us. They built a wall around us though, so you can only see a little bit of us. Anyway, that’s how I turned to stone.
