Desert Ecosystem

This is my food web:

Deserts are really dry and it hardly ever rains. That means that there is not a lot of water in deserts. The animals and plants need to get used to the desert. Cauti and camels store water so they have enough water to survive.

Consumers in deserts are scorpions, spiders, lizards, foxes, snakes and greater roadrunners. Like a greater roadrunner eats small birds, small rodents, reptiles and insects. Also like a kangaroo rat eats grass. Consumers consume food so they find food to eat a they do not make there own food. Some consumers make their own food but do not eat the food they make.

Producers in deserts are palm trees, cacti and grass. Producers produce their own food so they make there own food. Like a cactus get its food from the sun. So does a palm tree and grass. The food they make gives them energy so when an animal eats the plant they get some energy. They make food through the sun called photosynthesis.

In a desert there is not a lot of decomposers but there still are some. One decomposer is fungi another is bacteria. A decomposers break down dead animal and plant matter recycles nutrients back into the ecosystem.

There is human impact in many ecosystems. The human impact in deserts is humans are traveling through deserts and living in them. Also human try to make deserts bigger and building on them. People are also cutting down trees in deserts. Doing that stuff is bad for the ecosystem it can hurt animals by building on deserts and cutting down trees is cutting down some animals homes. That is why human impact is really bad for deserts.

There is a way to help human impact though like save water and not used bottled water as much and juice boxes. Doing that can help a little for protecting an ecosystem. Also you should try not to cut down lots of trees and not build on animals homes. Reusing things helps to protect an ecosystem. That also can protect an ecosystem.

The biggest desert in the world is the Sahara Desert. The Sahara Desert goes through Africa, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Mauritania, Mali, Niger, Chad, Senegal, Libya, Egypt and Sudan. The Sahara Desert is really big. Antarctica is also really big to almost the biggest desert in the world. Antarctica is bigger than United States and Mexico combined.

A desert ecosystem is really interesting. There is so many things about a desert. There is so many information about a desert ecosystem.

My Colonial America Book Reflection

 

I really liked making my Colonial America book it was really excited. I researched a lot and  read a lot of books and once I got all my information I was able to write my book. I choose my topic Colonial Women because I was interested in learning about colonial women like what there life was like.

First I planed my book like I had to plan what all my chapters were going to be like and the name oImage result for colonial americaf them. Like my first chapter was “All About Colonial Times” for that chapter I had to plan what I wanted to make it be like. Also my second chapter “Colonial Women” I had to choose what information I wanted to put in my book about colonial women.

After the planing I had to find information so I had to read books and look at web sites about Colonial America. After finding all the information I need I had to put in to my slide show. So I had to put all my information together. After that I put pictures in and made a glossary and a bibliography and then my slide show was done.

Hope you read my Colonial Women Book.

During my winter break I went to Florida. At my hotel there was a slide. The first time I went on it I thought it was slow. The second time I went on it I noticed that I was wrong. This is what happened, it was my turn and I went on the slide and I pushed my self and I started going really fast. There was a turn on the slide that made me almost fall off I slid right to the side so I could of fall off. When is was the end of the slide there is a pool and at the end I flew out in to the pool. My mom said she pushed off and at the same turn she got air. She could of flew out of the slide at the turn.

The first time I went on the slide I lied down and crossed my arms. That’s what you do to go fast (which it worked on another slide for me). It did not make me go fast and it did not make me go fast it actually made me keep on stopping. When I came out I just slid out of the slide. Like if I was sitting and fell. It as also like that for my sister and dad. They kept on stopping to.
