Treehoppers I am reserching treehoppers. A treehopper usese its mouth parts to suck out plant sap. A treehopper looks like a thorny thorn. The treehoppers habitat is a thorny thorn bush. A treehopper protects its self by spraying chemicals and very rarely usese its mouth parts to suck moistre from humun bodys. The first stage of the treehopper life cycle is the egg next is the nimph or the larvae finaly the adult. The female treehopper defends its eggs by buzzing and flaping there wings.

Lauren Toland, Grade 2 Thunderstorms Before the thunderstorm, the sky darkens and the air feels as if it's getting heavier. All of a sudden the weather changes. Boom! A crack of thunder roars the wind starts to pick up. It starts to drizzle. The wind starts howling and suddenly it is in the middle of a thunderstorm!...>

Thunderstorms There are many weather conditions that can be seen, heard, and felt during a thunderstorm. Before a thunderstorm, dark clouds drape over the sky like a gloomy sheet. Light rain hits the ground like pieces of rice spilling out of the sky. ...>

Thunderstorms Many weather conditions come together during a thunderstorm. The sky dims to a gray or a black, midnight color. The rain becomes sharp like nails on the ground and drills a pathway wherever it goes. The boom and crackle of thunder shakes the ground like earthquakes. Striking the dim sky, lightning bolts illuminate the dark sky. The humid air is heavy and running through it is like trying to run through water. Branches and other debris are flying everywhere because of the powerful, howling wind. All of these conditions come together during a thunderstorm.

The Uninvited Guests

I thought I heard something creak from the basement. I started down the stairs. Like the rest of the house, the basement was pitch black. The grandfather clock struck 12 times. Midnight. I fumbled for the light switch. I turned it on. Something was in the basement I hadn't seen before.

The Tree Outside owr classroom is a tree. I is just exploding with color like, green, oranges and yellow. So if you ever look at the tree you will faint and you will love it as if it was yours. It has bark as smooth as ice that is not cold. If you like to climb trees, this is the one you would pick. So when the leaves are gone I will be sad but I will remember it.

Suddenly the door slammed shut, sealed shut! Just then the lights flickered, then went out! I tried to find the window to open it and escape. No window! all of a sudden, I was sucked across the room! I let out a scream.

I landed with a thump. I was in a different world full of

trolls. ...>

Thunderstorms During a thunderstorm, many weather conditions come together. Dark clouds gather high above the ground. The air seems to hold fistfuls of mist as the light breeze turns to harsh wind. The air becomes cold as the first clap of thunder resounds. Then, the storm goes off like a firecracker. Lightning streaks above, illuminating the sky and revealing the shapes of clouds. Then the rain comes, cold and hard, a million tiny stalagmites speeding toward earth. They drive down like hammered nails. The downpour hits hard, forcing through the ground, making thousands of murky puddles. When lightning becomes scarce, and the resounding thunder claps cease, the worst is over. ...>
