Alligator and Wasp Contrast

If you want to know the differences between alligators and wasps read this. Alligators have an endoskeleton; on the other hand wasps have an exoskeleton. Wasps can fly, while alligators can’t. Alligators can go in the water, but wasps can’t. Moreover alligators are reptiles while wasps are insects. Wasps live in hives, but alligators live in rivers and swamps. Finally wasps are small, but alligators are large. As you see there are a lot of differences.

School Field Trip

Saturday I went to Sharjah with my classmates. We went to Sahara Centre. At the Sahara Centre we went to Adventure Land. Adventure Land is an arcade. My favorite ride at Adventure Land is the ride that goes in circles and that makes you go up side down. I call it the twister. I also went to a science and archeology museum.

Korean Drums

Yesterday I saw a Korean drum dance. It was a long performance, but it was fun. It was at the U.A.E. University where dad teaches. The drum group has three girls and two boys. It was a very nice performance. Did you know that the people carrying the drums were dancing? They were swinging the ribbon on their hat in circles.
