Plastic Pollution

Plastic Pollution is a major problem that has been around for a long time, and the worst thing is it never ever breaks down. There are heaps of different products that contribute to this and here are some examples, plastic bags and bottles, glad wrap, synthetic clothing, toys and sanitary items. Some lunch box alternatives to glad wrap and zip lock bags are beeswax wraps, paper bags and reusable containers. If you really care about the environment you should try to minimise your use of plastics.

My Avatar

This is my cartoon avatar. I used Avatar Maker and it is a really good website, it has a lot of options of what you can wear (apart from hair,) and it is appropriate for all ages. I would highly recommend this website for people who just want a head and shoulders avatar, rather than a full body one.

200 Word Challenge

Just because it is doesn’t mean it should be…” a voice sneered from across the dark space. I had no idea where I was, my head hurt and it smelt really bad. This was the last thing I wanted when I made that stupid wish. Then, red light flared in my eyes and a bulky figure stalked towards me, it raised its fist and that was the last thing I saw. I woke up to the sound of what seemed like a thousand armies chanting, “Scaredy-cat, scaredy-cat, scaredy-cat!” I opened my eyes and sat up with a jolt, to find I was in some kind of arena. I didn’t know how, and I didn’t know why, but I was there, and there was no denying it…

As soon as I  sat up, a voice boomed,”Who are you, stranger?”. At once the chanting stopped, I didn’t answer. “Who are you?!” the voice repeated, this time louder, “If you do not answer me, you will face a non negotiable public execution!” it threatened. This time I decided I should probably answer, “My name is Elizabeth Sanders,” I finally responded. When a thin man with a smirk on his face and an expensive looking suit appeared out of the blue and began sashaying towards me. At once, I knew he was not to be trusted.

My First Post

This year I am very exited to go to Canberra, because I have never been there before and it will be the first time I am going out of Adelaide for a school camp. So far this year I have enjoyed the work we have been doing and I have had success making friends. This year in Edublogs I am excited to get more experienced with this website.
