In Defense of Sea Turtles by Raneem

turtle 1

Why do you think people don’t really care about sea turtles? Shouldn’t we do something? Well, readers, if you are reading this piece of writing, please tell other people about it.

First, sea turtles are very important to the ecosystem because they eat jellyfish in the ocean that can make you die. If you kill them, the ocean will be so dirty you will get sick if you swallow a little bit of water.

Sea turtles last very long, luckily, because sea turtles are part of the environment. Also, we are lucky that in this world there are sea turtles because if you find their eggs you can take them to eat them. However, if you find a sea turtle in the ocean, please don’t take it to keep it.

In addition, if you find them, don’t poison them or take their shells for decoration. Also, some weird people make sea turtles in a bottle charm, which is unnecessary. People also decorate turtles to make them look beautiful, which is also unnecessary.

To celebrate turtles for their wonderful job and show how important they are to us, we should have a sea turtle rescue center for turtles that get injured. We can have a sea turtle egg hunt where you hide balls representing their eggs and hide them so that other people hunt for them. Also, we should have a Sea Turtle Day when we can decorate our class with sea turtles and we can have turtle sports like do a race running like a turtle or swimming like a turtle.

Since sea turtles are very important to the environment, we should take good care of them!

Fifth Grade Goes Bananas!

When we were doing fractions in math, we had two bananas and we tried to share them equally among three people. We had to find ideas to cut the bananas equally so that each child gets the exact portion of the banana. Therefore, we measured the banana with a ruler and each person realized that we should cut both bananas into three pieces. Each student enjoyed 1/3 of each banana so that makes 2/3s in all. It was an exciting math lesson because after we cut each banana, we ate them!

Can you think of other ways of cutting food and sharing it using fractions or mixed numbers?
