Tsunamis

Tsunamis are giant waves from the sea and are very destructive. A tsunami is caused by earthquakes or meteors. Tsunamis are giant ocean waves caused by a large earthquake, they are also known as seismic sea waves.

The name “Tsunami” is Japanese and means “Harbor wave”, there also are tidal waves which are similar to tsunamis. Tsunami is Japanese but it’s now used in English. The term “Tsunami” is from Japan and means harbor (tsu) wave (nami).

Tsunamis occur by meteors or earthquakes. They are caused by sudden movement from the ocean, basically underwater earthquakes. Tsunamis happen mostly in the Pacific Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea and the Caribbean.

People measure tsunamis with a recorder. The recorder transmits with buoys, the buoys relay measurements of wave height to the satellites.

The maximum height of a tsunami is 1720 feet (543 meters) which probably was the highest tsunami ever. The normal height of a tsunami is 30 meters but 543 meters (1720 feet) is a whole lot higher.

Tsunamis are giant waves from the sea and are caused by underwater earthquakes.

Information about Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis

Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis is a type of lung disease and also the longest letter in English. It is caused by inhaling very fine ash and sand dust, so be careful if you are near a volcano.

Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis is a very rare disease, why because volcanoes are hard to find so Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis is rare.

Now that’s all I can think for Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis the longest word in English.

… When did it arrive? (100 WC)

KABOOM!! A mysterious ship crashed on the surface at 11 : 00pm at night. In the morning I saw smoke in the air, I asked dad what it was, he didn’t know so we went outside to look and it was A UFO.

I was thinking if my dad knew what to do with it, he actually didn’t know. Right now in the backyard an ALIEN popped out of the Unidentified Flying Object (UFO).

For a second I thought the alien took control of my dads brain, but I only had one question stuck in my brain, seriously.

When did it arrive?

100 Word Challenge

“Wow have a look at that sculpture!” I said.

“Son it’s a gun for gods sake… With a thing twisted around it.” Dad said embarrassingly.

I picked up something that looked like the gun we were looking at. Dad said, “Damn son where’d ya find that!”

Dad tried to make me laugh. “Dad I literally found it on the ground!” I say kind of annoyed.

“Sorry son, I tried to make you laugh but I failed.”

I saw a thing on the stick that looked like a trigger. I tried to press it and BOOM!!! The gun shot and a BOONANA APPEARED.

The mess of the EARTHQUAKE!!!!!

It was a fine and lovely day, people were walking on the streets, humming happily. Others were in tall, tall buildings, working hard on projects.

When suddenly AN EARTHQUAKE BEGAN!!!! Everybody got scared. The people who were working in the tall, tall buildings thought worriedly, “Do we deserve this?”

It definitely was a gigantic mess after the Earthquake. But everybody got it all cleaned up. Lots of were badly injured from inside the buildings, but they did survive.

After a while (in the next few days) because of the earthquake, a Tsunami arrived.

 

 

Yeah, these people did NOT like it at all.

TV’s are better than books (what do you choose comment)

I think TV’s are better than books because TV’s have an amazing virtual world and also TV’s are cool. My first reason why TV’s are better than books is because some shows can give out exciting and sad emotions. And some people have favourite TV shows.

My second reason is if TV’s weren’t made, instead we’d be playing with hurtful wooden dolls. And that’s not fun. My third and final reason is that most people like watching TV more than reading books. I mean sometimes reading is fun, but only when your going to bed.

Even I sometimes read, it sometimes can be fun to read too.

And this is why I think TV’s are better than boring books.

It’s cruel to keep animals in cages.

I think it’s definetly cruel to keep animals in cages because animals need to live in their own environment, like the forest.

Animals can’t stay in cages all day sleeping. They need more space to play around and have fun. I think it’s cruel because the person who it might’ve taken it away from its family.

E.g: I saw an animal get taken from its own family, and it looked sad. People shouldn’t keep animals in cages because it’s exactly like locking humans in cages, and you’d know how that would feel it you were them, and that’s how the animal would feel.

 

They always need space because in that space they need fun, sleep and food. And if they got taken away from its family it’d be sad because it would need its family to live life. Space for them is in the forest, that’s were most animals live. E.g I’ve went to the forest and what I mostly saw were animals. And they seemed pretty happy over there, in the forest. And I don’t think they would like it if they got taken from the forest.

 

All I think that it’s okay to keep birds in cages because I think they have fun inside it.

This is why I think it isn’t okay to keep animals in cages because…..

 

They need their space in the environment for example in the forest. They need their family. (if they have one)
