Terrific Tuna

My Essay

Learn all about the Tuna while you read this excellent essay.


What is an aquatic fish and can be the size of Mr.Sherick? The Pacific Albacore Tuna, of course! This large animal’s appearance, diet, life cycle, and reproduction period is very different from a human’s. This tuna can have many eye capturing qualities different from other fish.


In conclusion, divers are always happy to see a warm-blooded fish with a unique reproduction process. It should also be obvious that these fish eat ONLY meat.

Go Fish

I really enjoyed the Go fish activity in my school. My friends and I enjoyed learning how to use a budget. I bought 3 species of fish, 10 Dwarf Puffer Fish, 1 Angelfish, and 2 Neon Tetras. I spent $46.50 just on the fish. To keep the fish alive, healthy, and happy, I would need 20 gallons of water or a 20 gallon tank. Because of my theme, girly, I bought some girly decorations such as a Mermaid Mini; 1 Princess Castle; 1 Prince Castle; 1 bridge; 1 Pink Cherry Blossom Tree;1 Bamboo Plant; 1 Clown-fish; 1 bag of Seashells for decoration; and 1 Coral Reef Cave. In total, I spent $184.99 without the fish. So, I spent $231.49 in all with $18.51 left over from the budget.


In my diorama, I included 8 organisms including 1 as a tuna fish, 2 as a turtle, 3 as a crab, 4 as seaweed, 5 as a dolphin, 6 as some coral, 7 as a clam, and 8 as a jellyfish. Many of you are probably wondering what the coral and seaweed is made of. Well, I made the seaweed out of stickers and made the coral out of pink pipe-cleaners. All in all, I enjoyed making this diorama in class and hope the nest class enjoys it as much as I did.

Chef's Corner

Today we will be making Double Chocolate Crackles. This food originated from Australia. People from Australia commonly make this as a delightful dessert for Christmas dinner.

History:The earliest Chocolate Crackles recipe so far discovered was printed in an advertisement in the Australian Women’s Weekly on Saturday 18 December 1937. The advertisement was placed by Edible Oil Industries, a subsidiary of Unilever, who made Copha. While it mentioned Rice Bubbles, it did not include the Kellogg name. In 1953, Kellogg gained a trademark over the term Chocolate Crackles – a trademark the company still owns. Chocolate Crackles are still a favorite for children’s parties and cake stalls.


For the record, that Chocolate Crackles recipe reads as follows:

5 ozs. Rice Bubbles (4 cups)

8 ozs. Icing Sugar

2 1/2 ozs. Fine Cocoanut

2 1/2 ozs. Cocoa (2 tablespoons)

8 ozs. COPHA

Mix dry ingredients, melt COPHA and pour over same. Thoroughly mix and spoon into paper cup containers and allow to set. The above quantity makes 2 1/2 to 3 dozen.

Here’s the official Kellogg’s® version, with metric measurements:


  • 4 cups Kellogg’s® Rice Bubbles®

  • 1 cup icing sugar, sifted

  • 3 tablespoons cocoa

  • 1 cup desiccated coconut

  • 250g copha


  1. Combine dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.

  2. Melt copha gently.

  3. Cool slightly

  4. Pour into dry ingredients and mix well.

  5. Spoon into paper patty cases.

  6. Chill until set.

Makes about 24.Because COPHA is hydrogenated coconut oil, it’s officially bad for you. So a diet consisting largely of Chocolate Crackles is not recommended.
