Underwater Art

This is my underwater art. I made it out of pastel, paper and glue. First we got our big piece of paper and folded it in half then we painted the two halls. To make the paper effective we put different patterns  with different colours. Next we chose a sea creature. And drew a template. Then we cut out the sea creature from the our decorated paper the we stuck it on black paper. Then to make it even more effective we put a background. This is how it looks.

Writing Sample

Shhhhh! I am looking at this very strange animal. Off it goes let's follow.

 I am a spy and my spy name is  .Shadow. and my real name is Emily. Since the animal has fallen down and gone asleep I am going to go bed.

Hmmm! I wonder where this pole goes. "Ah ha Perfect." I squeeze into my tent. 

I awake at 1:00 in the morning to investigate the sleepy animal. 10 minutes later the animal wobbles and jiggles and opens one eye.😜 I slide back into my tent. And as soon as it stands up I follow.



10 hours later I go back to my lab to check my information. I need to go to my boss and see if he believes me so I can put it in the museum. 

Oh know I forgot to take a picture. He will never believe me!!



I run back to the place where I found the animal. I can't find it. So I follow the animals footsteps the animal lay on the sand.

I found the animal it has turn to a skeleton I take the skeleton back to my boss he is impressed about my discovery.
