Topic sentence:contributes to habitat
,diets and protection.
Did you know that a pack of dholes is brave enough to scare a tiger or other predators like leopards.Packs of dholes protect the other dholes.Dholes live in packs from 5 - 12 which means they are social.A dholes scientific name is cuan alphanis.
Reddish brown body colour and white paws including a black tail.Larger dholes are 90 cm long.Size of a dhole is thin and a little small.
Dholes use their senses to track down hoofed mammals but dholes also sometimes chase prey into water to help slow the prey down.There is one dog that controls the pack and tells the pack what to do so they can catch their prey.Dholes don ‘t just protect each other dholes in the pack they also hunt in packs.
Dholes stay in packs to protect each other.For the baby dholes to be safe when the pack hunts one of the dholes stay behind and look after the pups.
In conclusion, the dhole has different strategies to survive in the jungle for example it lives in packs to find food. One of the ways are they live in packs and hunt together.Appearance of a dhole is it should have a reddish brown colour. Dholes eat lots of food in the forest.Overall,it is unbelievable that a miniature meat eating dog can scare of a tiger when they work together.

Year 5's should go to camp
Are year 5 children thinking of what exercises or games to play at school. My opinion is that years 5’s should go to camp because children will learn new things and more skills including other activities. Plus children get fit.
Year 5 ‘s need to go to camp because they will learn to live outside alone in a tent.They'll learn new things about the fresh green environment.Children will learn to make mini tents.
Year 5’s must go to camp because they might have not done one of these activities. They will learn to work together or would you rather want them to be cruel and evil to other children. Each children would achieve things that they have never done before.All the children would have fun because they get to do lots of sport including fun exercises. If year 5 children might have never sleep alone they will learn that it’s not that frightening to sleep alone.
I believe that year 5 children should go to camp because children get fit in a fun way.Another reason is that year 5 ‘s should go is children should get fit and camp has exercises so year 5’s have a lower risk of getting obesity,type 2 and high blood pressures.Maybe children might learn new exercises. Children can do exciting things like archery,rock climbing,camping,bushwalking and rafting.
Overall I think year 5 ‘s should go to camp immediately so they have fun exercises and they need to get fit.
