Sea Turtle writing

Description: For writing this term, we were told to watch this video and make a piece of nonfiction writing with a paragraph of each fact.

Here is the video that we had to watch.

as you can see there is a lot of info that we had to put into writing, but we got facts that we heard the person say in this video.

here is my writing so far.

Sea Turtles

Turtles. Sea Turtles live in a dark watery
 abyss, also known as the ocean. This is called a habitat, its called a habitat because that is their home or where they live like we live in a house that is our habitat. The ocean is their habitat because that's where they thrive. They live there because their food lives in the ocean.

Sea Turtles have been around since the late Jurassic, roughly 150 million years ago! WOW Sea Turtles are old! Sea turtles have lived this long because they are smart and have good protection on their backs known as shells. Although now that humans are around the Sea Turtles are becoming extinct because of pollution and food.

When Sea Turtles lay eggs they lay them in a pit in the sand to protect the eggs then the mother leaves never to be seen again. The mother lays about 1000 eggs! How you ask? Let me tell you something interesting… I don't know!!!
