Penguins

Penguin
A cold desert is Antarctica is the coldest place in the world and it is the world's biggest cold desert. Adaptation mean to get use to something like the penguin and polar bear live in Antarctica. The penguin even the polar bear has to get use to the cold.
  

Antarctica is cold place but there are still animals that adapted to that habitat. Antarctica is plain white with trees but most of the time there are no leaves on the trees.  


Penguins huddle together to keep warm. The colour of a penguin is black and white but the baby penguin is grey and the head is white and black. The penguin Penguins are flightless birds.
While other birds have wings for flying, penguins have adapted flippers to help them swim in the water.
Most penguins live in the Southern Hemisphere.
The Galapagos Penguin is the only penguin specie that ventures north of the equator in the wild. hands look like flippers  that's why they are excellent swimmers.
hands look like flippers  that's why they are excellent swimmers.


In conclusion, the penguin adapted by thick fur and under the fur there is a thick layer of blubber that keeps them warm. They are really good swimmers. They are flightless birds.

The clean water bottle machine

844 million people can't drink clean water so we made this machine. So if you tip a water bottle upside down, pour the salt water in then push the button then clean water comes out from the other side. By Ruyi & Andrew

Why bikes school should be less expensive Speech

Why bikes should be less expensive Do you like to ride bikes? Do you want bikes to be less expensive? Have you ever been to a bike store and couldn’t afford an amazing bike to ride? Well I know your pain, bikes are way too expensive! Bikes should be less expensive because it reduces traffic as bikes take up less space on the road than cars, so you can get to places quicker on your bike. Also you don't need fuel and bikes are way cheaper than cars. But bikes are still extremely expensive and NEED TO BE CHEAPER! If bikes are less expensive it will help the environment because there is less pollution and less pollution means less people will get ill. Making bikes cheaper means no more global warming. If there is no climate change that means the Earth's temperature will be the same. Bikes have to be less expensive because it helps reduce noise. When people have to go to work early and others are at home sleeping, it is annoying when people pass other people’s homes in their cars and honk really loudly. Bikes are quieter as they only have bells, and bikes do not have an engine. Therefore, if more people rode bikes, people would sleep better in the morning. If you sleep better in the morning and night, when you wake up you have more energy to ride your bike and you won’t be tired. When you're pumped up it feels like you can do anything and go anywhere on your bike. Overall bikes should be less expensive because they don’t take much space on the road. Also, bikes help the environment unlike cars which pollute the Earth. Bikes are also much quieter. Bikes are amazing, I know I just love riding my bike and feeling the cool breeze and breathing in the fresh air. So, let’s go make bikes less expensive!
