Winners Challenge 4

Hi there!

Thanks again for participating....

These are my 3 best archeologists!

PABLO:

If I were an archeologist I would like to find the bones of my deceased great gandfather, he died in the Civil War.

MARTÍN:
If I were an archeologist I would want to find the rests of an UFO with jemelry of other planets.
If that could happen we would know that there is life in other planets.

SARA:

What I would like to find if I were an archeologist, is a egypcian sarcophagus of an important pharaoh. Because I love Egypcian civilization, when I was a child I took hieroglyphs lessons, they were very interesting. I learnt a lot of Egyptian civilization!



Well done everyone!!!

Attention... tomorrow Tuesday new challenge!

Challenge 2, winners

Hi,

Last week winners were Víctor and David, the only participants.

And this week, we have the 3 most original ones (from my point of view...):

Sara: (there are some mistakes in writing...)

"I could be a tiger; because they are so cute and they've got a beautiful orange and black fur. White tigers, too; of course. They run a lot ! To eat. And I could be on the savannah with other animals like giraffes, elephnts, lions..."
this?
  





or this one?
Pablo (cause I did not know this animal Petauro!):

"I would like to be a Petauro because they like a lot sweet food and they live in the night and sleep during the day and they can glide like a fly squirrel".

Petauro is sugar glider in English
and Martín:

"If I could be an animal I would be an eagle because I would like to fly like they and see the lanscapes that they can see.Also I think that is an animal very quick and nimble. It is an animal very beautiful and very clever. Also I want to be he because I want to see the customs that they have".
powerful!

Tomorrow we will have a new challenge in the blog!
