Body Works

We read a book called Body Works. This is my report on the book written by Judith Hodge.
Hope you like it. Comment what you think when you've read it.


Body works                                                          


Brain Power:
  1. Cheetah cubs have to learn how to hunt from watching their mother.
Aquatic animals:
  1. Unlike most fish stingrays seem to fly through the water by moving the sides of their bodies like wings.
On the wind:
  1. Sugar gliders have large flaps between their front and back legs to help them glide.
Sound and vision:
  1. Mammals like deer and antelope, which are particularly at risk from predators, emerge into the world with well-developed eyes.
  2. Animals born in protected nests, like bird species, don’t open their eyes for several days.
Parts for eating:
  1. Snakes swallow their food whole. Then digest it slowly over a few days.
  2. The shape of a birds beak provides a clue to what it eats. Pelicans  scoop up fish in their netlike bills, while parrots have hooked, nutcracker beaks.
Other senses:
  1. A sea anemone has nerve cells on its skin surface which respond to light and dark, hot and cold and acid and alkali.
  2. Otters hunting at night use their whiskers, or vibrissae, for feeling out food, such as fish and frogs.

  1. I am really impressed by your note taking and summarising, Cam.

    You showed excellent self management skills to the complete the task independently to such a high standard. Well done!
