  1. Along time ago their was an explorer that went to a desert that people say that it was so dry that all the animals their died! He took his jeep to go to the desert it took him about 2-3 hours to get there but it was worth it. When he got there he started to look around trying to find somethings that he can research when he was walking he found a river bed and he told himself ¨ Wow never in my life have I ever seen a river bed this dry¨ saying with a sad look on his face. He kept walking and said ¨ Well I better head home¨ so then he went still thinking about the river bed.

    I have never seen the river bed so dry. When I am going on walks around the neighborhood I will always go to the pond. And on the way there I follow the stream to take me. But one day when I was on my walk there was no water left in the stream! I kept running thinking that there was hope at the end but nothing. Nothing at all. Just this weird black goop at the end. I was devastated thinking there was never going to be water again. Sadly walking by the dead fish I reached home. To never think of it again.

    1. Hello Zoe!
      Your use of the word “devastated” exactly describes how I would feel if the water disappeared from the lake near my house.

    I have always loved water; it feels good, hydrates you, and can even make you feel better! Water always seems like the most crucial thing in the world; it always seems that way for me, so this morning I asked my mom if I could walk to a river to hear its soothing sound and peacefulness. When I got to the river, I realized that it was so dry and I had never seen the river bed so dry, and it seemed a little bit hotter than usual, and I thought “The climate has changed!”! So, I knew there could be a drought.

    One day I went up to the mountains with my family and we saw a lake so I went in the RV and got my swimming suit on. I ran over to the lake to take some pictures but I was disappointed. “Wow… I have never seen the river bed so dry before” i said. I still took some pictures but I was still disappointed. I ran back to the RV but my sister was crying because she’s dramatic and wants everything her way:/ We went farther in the river and we finally saw somewhere to take GOOD pictures. I was happy:)

    Pollution is affecting everything but mostly it has affected the Earth with global warming and pollution itself. Man I have never seen the riverbed so dry before and the reason it is dry is because of global warming. Global warming is also affecting the seasons like Fall and Winter. Now Because of global warming Fall is now like Spring except the plants start dying unlike the Spring and the Winter has not as much blizzards as Before.

    I woke up and went to my living room to see that East Anglia where my best friend Jorge lives is in a MASSIVE drought so I hurried down stairs to call him. “Yo Zephiah my home is in a massive drought. I know I saw it on the news are you ok? Yeah, I went down next to Cambridge and I have never seen the river bed so dry!.” I went to my kitchen to tell my mom. After that I was of to school. My teacher taught us about the drought and I told him I talked to my friend about the drought.

    One day I was going to the mountain to go see the world’s most famous river. I was taking a nap when all of a sudden I heard….“We are here, wake up sleepy head”,my mom had told me. So I started to slowly wake up. I yawned and got out of the RV. My parents had asked me why I wasn’t excited. I told them “hello I just woke up ?”. About two hours later we had hiked up a mountain to see the world’ famous river and when we got there I said “ I have never seen the river bed so dry before”.

  9. So I was going to Wisconsin. I crossed the Mississippi River and it was super dry I said”Why is the river bed so dry?”My grandpa said” it’s because the The climate is changing.” I said” why is the climate-changing? “My grandpa said it’s because no one is taking care of the Earth.”I said “why is no one taking care of the Earth?”My grandpa said” it’s because people are just letting every one take all the water through the sewers.”I said “oh okay we’ll just get back on our drive.”We continued on our drive next day we got to Wisconsin there was barely any water.
