This is for my former student, Mr Chelsea. Congratulations!
We studied this topic in one of my classes a few days ago.
The water which used to feed the Aral Sea is now used for cotton fields. The Aral Sea was once the 4th largest inland sea in the world, now it is just a lake.
Last week I asked the question ‘Can chickens fly?‘, and of course the answer is ‘yes’, but it’s hard work for them, so they often prefer to walk.
And then I saw this photo.
In one of my classes we studied some things about Australia and I made a photocopy of a map of Australia for each student. The original map was in colour, but of course the photocopy was black and white, or rather grey and grey, and was not so easy to see.
So here is the full colour map, and if you click your cursor over the map you can see a nice big image with no grey!
I found this great photo of a butterfly, but I have no idea what kind of butterfly it is.
If anyone knows please tell me.
I thought that nearly every bird can fly. The only birds that cannot fly are really big ones like ostriches and emus, and others that don’t need to fly like kiwis, and of course penguins.
But I always thought that chickens can fly.
So why don’t the chickens fly over the river?
Rarotonga is the main island in the Cook Islands, in the Pacific Ocean, with a population of about 14,000. The capital city of the Cook Islands, Avarua, is on Rarotonga, but it is the beaches and ocean which attract many tourists.
I have never seen such a colour as the ocean in the photo above. I guess it’s a mixture of the turquoise water and the yellow sand below.
I thought Tokyo was crowded until I saw this photo, which was taken in Antarctica.
Is your tongue longer than your body? I hope not.
Maybe you don’t eat so many flies like this chameleon below.
This mantis looks like it’s posing for a photo. Maybe that’s its house in the background.
Following a very strange O-shaped structure that is very near to Shimizu station, I found another similar structure in Aino, very near to Ecopa.
Is there some deep meaning to the letter O?
