Sea turtle writing

Description: In reading we have been learning about note taking of the life of a sea turtle. We watched a video that gave us ideas of sea turtles so we could go research a bit more of the sea turtle. We researched the life of the sea turtle and the species.

My writng: Sea turtle writing

Sea turtles. They have been around since the late Jurassic roughly 150,000,000 years ago. They have survived from the challenges of the dinosaurs. The turtles life phase is. From egg to hatch to beach to ocean to mature to breed. The eggs are as big as ping pong balls. When they hatch there are threats. The threats are crabs, seagulls,rubbish and humans, when they get into the ocean there are even more threats to the sea turtles. The threats are fish, sharks, orcas, seagulls, oil spills and Fishermen.

The mother sea turtle lay 1,000 eggs, 800 hatch, 400 make it to sea. 200 progress to adult. 20 survive to breeding age without any interference, 2 survive with interference. Turtles are reptiles with hard shells. That protect them from predators. They are among the oldest and most primitive groups of reptiles.  Having evolved millions of years ago. Turtles live all over the world in almost every type of climate. There are different types of species of turtles there are loggerhead sea turtles, cheloniidae, leatherback, hawksbill and olive ridley.


There were species of sea turtles when the late jurassic like I said before in the story. The species of the jurassic. There is the Archelon, Toxochelyidae and Thalassemydidae. Very long names. Did you know that have a hard shell that protects them like a shield this upper shell is called carapace. Also turtles also have a lower shell called a plastron. The turtles grow up to the size of a dinner table. The turtles that make it as adults repeat the progress. I would rather be a shark. Because it doesn't die as easy as the turtle. 
Quote. Try to be like the turtle, At ease in its shell.

Feedback: I think you did well at explaining what they go throw. Tom H
Feedforward: I think you could of made the story smaller. Tom H

Evaluation: I think I did well because I added a lot of facts and the quote is pretty cool.
