Super Sponge

Nicholas Penza

Introduction

“Imagine yourself swimming in a coral reef”… Suddenly you see a sea sponge lying on a rock. Soon that sponge absorbs some of the water around it. Well did you know that that's how sponges gain their nutrients in the ocean? Well if not I’ll be showing you how they move, their body structure,and where they live.


CLosing

From their movement, body structure, to their habitat I hope you can see what an amazing animal the sponge is. So now imagine yourself swimming in a coral reef and you see a sponge what do you think. So now I hope you can see that this majestic creature needs to remain unharmed to live and thrive.

Common name is Sponge

Sponges are bottom dwellers

These Sponges don’t move

They have no backbone

Go Fish Activity

In this activity you had to make a fish tank. Although, you were supplied with a 20 gallon tank and a filter. We were also given a $250 budget.
Here is my paragraph I wrote about the Go Fish Activity.



In the Go Fish activity, for Australia week I was asked to make a fish tank with a $250 budget a twenty gallon tank and a filter. We had to choose decorations, fish, food, gravel, salt filter cartridges, and a thermometer. My fish were salt water fish and in total took up ten inches of my tank. I got a strawberry dottyback , two Nassarius snails , 2 blue damsels , and 1 carpenters Flashers warse. In the end I had 62 dollers and 52 cents I think I did really well and this was really fun.
