All About the Tiger

Tigers, or Panthera tigris tigris are almost extinct. The largest cat of the cat family, the tiger is a majestic creature.  Tigers from head to tail can be seven to nine feet. In other words, tigers can be up to three point three

meters! Unlike other large cats, tigers love the water. As all big cats are, they are mammals. There are eight different kinds of tigers, but unfortunately three species went extinct in the 1900s. Mostly, tigers keep to themselves and don’t bother humans.

Although tigers mostly leave us alone, we, as humans,  have not left them in peace. People hunt them so they can display them as trophies, or use them in traditional Chinese medicines. Their reddish orange coats with stripes are a trademark. So even though a usual life length for a healthy tiger is eight to ten years, most lives are cut short. Currently, there are more tigers in captivity than in the wild. Tigers have a fearful reputation, and can their roar can be heard from two miles away, but even the most mighty of animals fall to the hands of humans.

Tigresses give birth in litters of two to six. When cubs are born, they are raised by the mother, with no help from the father. The cubs stay with the mother until they are two or three, then find their own territories. In conclusion, tigers are pretty awesome animals and we should protect them.

Week Five Activity One

A popular food in America is pizza. Pizza can be made multiple ways. Chicago style pizza, my personal favorite is often called deep dish pizza. Deep dish is thick, with lots of tomato sauce and a large amount of mozzarella cheese, and a bread crust. New York style pizza, which is where pizza in America began is the opposite of Chicago pizza. The pizza is very thin, and three large slices may not satisfy you, unlike deep dish where one piece is more than enough. If you want to learn more, and where I pulled my information from is this website: http://www.passion-4-pizza.com/american_pie.htmlGiordano's

Week Five Activity Four

Hi Mary-Ellen, I just watched your video on the top five Aussie foods. I have never heard of a pie floater. Why is this food your favorite? Mary Ellen, as you can guess lives in Australia.

Hi room 12, I was wondering what kinds of pies you were referring to. Meat pies, dessert pies or both? Room 12 is in New Zeland.

Whoa, the poutine dish looks amazing. Do you make it at home? Ayla lives in Canada.

Kalea, I love bacon as well! Bananas are one of my least favorite foods though. Kalea also lives in Canada.

I also love chocolate, and although I am not very familiar with Mexican food, I found your post very informative. Brittany is from Mexico.

Week Three Activity Two

My Great Aunt Fran was an amazing woman. She was kind, funny, and always up for a laugh. Our family would gather at her house for Thanksgiving every year. Sadly, she smoked and got lung cancer. She passed away from the cancer in May. Even though she is gone, I know she is looking out for me. I have permission to use this picture.
