WALT- do a cause and effect map about if there was no rain in the rainforest

WALT- recraft our writing to make it better

WALT: Use personification and hyperboles
Before
Hi, I want you to meet my friend Desert. he is pretty wide and big. He becomes very dry, and never gets any water.  He doesn't cry much because he’s a tough man. He also tells very dry jokes.  Desert likes to play with sand, he’s always sleeping in bed with his sand like blanket.

Did you know Desert has a lot of friends and his best friend is Mr Scorpion and Camel boy. He likes to play with his cactus dolls. When he sneezes he creates a sand storm. Desert doesn't like mess and he also hates showers because he will get  all mucky and soggy.

My friend Desert has a pet scorpion called Sam and he likes to play with his cactus dolls. When he sneezes he creates sand storms that blow me away. Desert doesn't like mess and he also hates showers because he gets all mucky and soggy.
