Short Story for Environmental Science
One day there was a rare endangered species of owl named Paul who a school named attended Animal Rescue Elementary School. On Paul’s first day at Animal Rescue Elementary he was assigned to an ecology class. The longer Paul stayed in the class he started to like it, especially when the class reached subjects like adaptations and pollution which intrigued him. The class focused on these subjects ,and subjects like these for example they conducted an experiment on how and why species go extinct and experiments on the effects of the law of supply and demand. Every morning Paul had a different opening to solve before time is called, which included questions like “What is a population in an ecosystem?” Furthermore Paul also liked to raise his hand to answer questions like “What is biodiversity” asked by his teacher And Paul quickly became a star student in his class. And all star students in this class get to pick subjects to do labs on and they have to brainstorm and vote on the subjects they want to participate in so they came up with two subjects which were symbiosis and niche, but only one can be worked on at a time so the teacher decided to go with niche. The teacher decided niche because the definition of niche included the word habitat which is the vocabulary word of the week, which is assigned every week and documented. Later on that year a spelling bee had come up for the school and Paul had to spell the word biome to be accepted into the spelling bee. Paul passed with flying colors. Paul’s whole community came to support the event, because it is only held once a year. In the competition Paul came across words like threatened species and environmental science. And like the brainy act Paul was he spelled word correctly and made it to the semi finals. In the semi finals Paul finally misspelled a word which was consumption, but in the competition the only other competitor also spelled the word wrong. So another word was given to the both of them which was species and both of them spelled it correctly and so the finals started and the word that was given at that point was earth. Paul spelt the word correctly but the other competitor didn’t so Paul had to spell one last word which was acclimation, which Paul asked for the definition because the word was all so knew to Paul and the instructor gave the definition “Acclimation- the act of adapting” replied the instructor. So Paul spelt the word and he had finally completed the spelling bee and won. Paul was congratulated on his achievement at his graduation which was only 3 weeks away. And Paul strived in middle school and high school and he went to college and graduated and became a teacher at the same elementary school that he graduated from.
