The bright moonlight revealed the pink and orange streaks in the sky. As I walked, I stroked the sand with my feet. My heart lead me across the dessert as my flashlight helped me see. As I stared at the beautiful streaks of colors of the sunset, I heard brushes of sand in the distance. Pointing my flashlight towards the noise, I saw what appeared to be a little medium haired fluffy lioness cub, it had short little goat horns, wings of a dragon and a serpent tail. Its beautiful piercing green and blue eyes smiled at me. She slowly paw by paw walked towards me. I picked her up and stroked it with my hands. I felt a soft sensation. She purred and licked me on my face. What a beautiful creature!

 This article was about the killer volcano in Hawaii.Kilauea volcano in Hawaii spews lava and fountains of toxic gases into the streets. It has already destroyed 26 homes.Some people were allowed to rush home on Sunday to collect pets and other important things such as medicines during a quiet few hours with less volcanic activity. Other areas were too dangerous to return to because of the poisonous sulfur dioxide gases coming out of the earth. There was a powerful 6.9 magnitude earthquake on the volcano’s south side on Friday, the strongest earthquake since 1975. The earthquake caused rock slides in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, and caused a coastal cliff to collapse into the ocean. The earthquake also caused a small sea-level rise but no tsunami. Scientists are predicting more earthquakes and eruptions, perhaps for months.If we didn’t have volcanic eruptions would it help the earth or does the earth need volcanoes? Is it natural for the volcano to be going on for months or is this a rare phenomenon?I know understand how much this volcano is bringing distraught to the residents of Hawaii.

…’when did it arrive?’

 

“Bella wake up!” Yelled my mother. I groaned and slowly got out of bed. As I walked out of my bedroom my mother jumped out and said “Happy Birthday!”

“Oh is that today why are we celebrating how I’m getting closer to death.” I groaned

“Oh come sweetheart that’s not the attitude, anyways I think I’ve got something that will cheer you up.” I slowly trudged towards the kitchen. What I saw amazed me it was a fluffy little puppy “when did this arrive?” I said. “Just today”, my mum smiled with a smile on her face.

This article was about why so many earthquakes form around the ring of fire.September 29th, about 7am, a series of massive waves ripped through coastal villages in Samoa. It was caused by a huge earthquake on the sea floor just off the Samoan coast. Just one day later a powerful earthquake hit the Indonesian island of Sumatra. Hundreds were killed and injured.That’s about 10,000 kms away so it’s really unlikely that one earthquake could have caused another and earthquakes are happening all the time so the timing was probably just coincidence. Scientists are still looking into that.About 90% of the world’s earthquakes happen in the ring of fire.Some of the largest earthquakes we’ve ever seen, like the one that caused this massive tsunami in 2004, happened in the Ring of Fire. Its also home to three quarters of the world’s volcanoes and some of the biggest eruptions. This is no coincidence and it shows us a lot about what’s going on under the earth.We usually think of the ground we stand on as being “rock solid”  If you went down far enough you’d find red hot molten rock. The thin, cool layer we live on floats on top. It’s called the crust but its not one solid piece.Its made up of huge slabs called tectonic plates and you’ll notice that quite a few meet along the Ring of Fire. Tectonic plates drift on the liquid rock, slowly changing shape and position over time. Scientist reckon over millions of years the drifting tectonic plates changed the shape of continents completely but they only move about the rate that your fingernails grow so you can’t see it happen.Volcanoes can also happen when plates meet and earthquakes. Sometimes underwater earthquakes cause tsunamis; massive waves like the one that hit Samoa.What was Australia connected to before tectonic plates moved? How regular does a volcano erupt?  Now I understand that 90% earthquakes happen around the ring of fire.

I jumped out of bed. I hadn’t slept at all as I was excited. I quickly ran out of my bedroom and out into the corridor. On a table were six different colored eggs. How I found them you ask? Well, yesterday as I was sitting down, I looked out of the window and saw these eggs. I was so fascinated. Now I’m staring at these eggs and hoping for them to crack and reveal a dinosaur. I am so impatient ,I grab one of the eggs and smash it on the table. Chocolate crumbled out of the egg.

PROMPT: But what if I was in charge 

 

BEEP, BEEP!  I reached for my alarm clock. Thinking of work exhausted me. I reached for the TV remote.

“Today we have alarming news -Donald Trump has decided to start a war against North Korea. Here’s what he said:”

“This is how America will be great again! North Korea will pay and we will show them our power!”

I was in total shock. Could this be a nuclear war! But if I was in charge. I will send Donald Trump to Syria to experience what war is like. Striving for peace and being an inspiration to every little girl will be my aim.

This text was about young leaders and their qualities.Now some Aussie school kids are learning how they can be the great leaders of the future. They’re taking part in something called National Young Leaders Day. It’s an opportunity to hear from leaders in the community, ask questions and learn about leadership skills.

 Qualities of a good leader:

  • A good communicator.
  • the ability to control a crowd, or connect with a single person.
  • leads by example.
  • inspires others:
  • encourage someone to speak out, or make a difference in the world.
  • places responsibility on his shoulders
  • shows empathy and cares about the way others feel.
  • focuses on the positives, not the negatives.
  • treats others the way they would like to be treated.
  • control a crowd, or connect with a single person.

 

Young leaders raised issues that are really important to them such as bullying, homelessness.And while talking about these things is a simple step, it could be just the start of what’s to come from these leaders of the future.I now understand there’s no single thing that makes someone a good leader. Different people lead in different ways and they’re often passionate about very different things. 

What qualities and skills will future leaders have?

The ball come straight for me. Bang! I couldn’t feel my body I fell to the ground. There was total darkness. Lifting my head, speckles of light emerged. The silhouette of tall trees could be seen from a distance. Suddenly, they started disintegrating. A pile of sticks fell to the ground which then rose and formed into shapes of people. They stomped with great force towards me.

“Food” they murmured to each other.

They approached closer. I jumped as one of them touched me with its sharp branches. “Are you okay?” he asked. The light became clearer. My brother’s face appeared.
