Battle of the Books

Hello everyone! It’s Mara back with an exciting update about Battle of the Books. Enjoy!

Well, today was the finals! My team the Rockin’ Readers made it along with a boy team called Script Wizards. Their were 3 people on each team. We headed to the library when school started. We had our first battle there. We each answered 16 questions. The questions were the tiniest details in the story that you don’t remember so it was a really tough round. At the end of the battle my team the Rockin’ Readers had 96 points, and the Script Wizards had 93. Then we had a battle during recess, where our teams faced off in the Board Room with all the parents watching and all the other Battle of the Book participants who didn’t make it to the finals. It was really scary in front of a huge crowd. The questions were randomly picked and it ended up being the Script Wizards got the questions we thought were easier.

It was just luck of the draw and the Script Wizards won 1st place. At least, my team got a trophy for 2nd. The trophies are really cool! They have a marble base and the trophy part is made of a mix of metals. It’s really cool! After that we had a party for all the Battle of the Book Particpants. We had brownies, rice krispie bars, chocolate strawberry bars, juice, water, licorice, chocolate chip cookies, popcorn, etc.! It was super fun. My team didn’t win but we still tried our hardest and gave it our best! It was a great experience I will never forget!

Springboks

Hello everybody! It’s Mara here and today I have a post on the Springbok. Springboks are an animal if you’re confused about what a Springbok is. I’m writing about Springboks because on the fabulous game called Wonder Zoo you can collect Springboks! I wanted learn more about this beautiful animal so that is why I’m doing this post! Before we start this post a quick thank you to en.wikipedia.org and classic.worldbookonline.com. I hope you enjoy this post everyone!

Springboks are look kind of like gazelles and antelopes and the tiniest bit like elk and deer. Springboks are known for springing up to 6.5 feet in the air! The scientific name for the Springbok is Antidorcas marsupialis. Springboks are most commonly found in Namibia, Botswana, and South Africa.

Springboks are graceful, long, and slender. The Springbok is most times in a total a length of about 59 – 77 inches. Also both genders have horns unlike some other kinds of species. There is usually more then one main color on the Springbok. Some colors are white, tan, reddish tan, brown, black stripes. The horns usually are black an have a little black tuft on the end of the horn.

Springbok’s diets usually contain of grass and water from a nearby watering hole. Springboks can also go without water in the dry season. Sometimes they can go years without water! In very extreme cases Springboks can live without ever drinking any water!

Leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, and lions are the Springbok’s main predator. Pythons are able to take down Springboks as well. Most antelope species such as Pronghorn and Gazelle, there population is shrinking but strangely enough the Springbok’s [who is also part of antelope species] population is going up!

Springboks are amazing animals there very interesting animals to study! I hope you enjoyed this post!

Con’s

  •  It’s quite dull, I wish Animal Jam could add some heart shapes to the table.
  • The prize is quite unreasonable because the animated pizza dart board is 350 gems and this un-animated heart table is 400 gems. It just doesn’t make sense to me!!!!!!

Well, that’s our quick report on the Heart Table!

The 4th day of Winter Break

Today was an amazing Tuesday. So first off, my BFF and I went to the movie theater and saw the new Annie movie.  It is a great movie, I rate it a 5 on a scale 1 – 5. 1 being the worst and 5 being the best. It is a tiny bit scary and sad toward the end, otherwise it was exceptional!!!

After the movie we went over to my BFF’s house. We hung out for 4 – 5 hours!!!!! We did Hanukkah together as well!!! Tonight is the last night of Hanukkah!!! We had a ton of fun. My BFF just moved kitty corner from my house. She has a pool at her house and no siblings!!! I’m so happy that she moved kitty corner from us. We have so much fun together. Well, have a great night!!! BYE!!!!

Your BBFF, [ Best Blogger Friend Forever]
