Defensive Plan

  1. If we were to be attacked we would have our moat that is 50 ft deep to prevent people from crossing

  2. The crocodiles and sharks in our moat would eat the trespassers when they try to cross

  3. We would also have our watchtowers to shoot arrows down at the attackers

  4. The drawbridge would provide us with protection at the front lines

  5. The people would gather in the middle and the warriors would be on the edges to keep all citizens safe
