THE SHIP OF THE DESERT:

THE SHIP OF THE DESERT CLASS : III SUBJECT: ENGLISH

PowerPoint Presentation:

Who are you? I am the Ship of the Desert. Who are you?

PowerPoint Presentation:

Don’t you know me ? I’m the King of the Forest. Are you? Oh, I see.

PowerPoint Presentation:

frowning

PowerPoint Presentation:

You call yourself the Ship of the Desert. How can you be a ship, you’re an animal? So I am, but people call me the Ship of the Desert . I can walk across the desert even on a hot afternoon. The sand burns but it doesn’t bother me.

PowerPoint Presentation:

I can’t believe it. Can you walk across a desert?

PowerPoint Presentation:

No, I can’t, but I can run in the forest.

PowerPoint Presentation:

How can you do that? Every animal can do that. I alone can run on sand. I can run on sand at 25 kilometres an hour.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Look at my feet. They are thick and padded. The hot sun does not burn them .

PowerPoint Presentation:

My feet are padded too. Thorns don’t prick them and I can run 80 kilometres an hour.

PowerPoint Presentation:

prick

PowerPoint Presentation:

That is true. You can run 80 kilometres an hour in the forest but can you run even a mile on the hot sand? May be not but....

PowerPoint Presentation:

And you can't live without water for a week , can you? No, I can’t. I need water everyday. But don’t tell me you can do without water?

PowerPoint Presentation:

Yes, I can. There are no rivers or lakes in a desert. But that does not bother me. I can drink 200 bottles of water at a time . Really! You must have a big stomach!

PowerPoint Presentation:

Yes, I have a big stomach. I can store water for a week. I can store food for two weeks even. Do you store food in your stomach ?

PowerPoint Presentation:

No, I don’t. I store it in my hump. I eat a lot of food at one time. Then I don’t need to eat for a fortnight. That’s interesting. But what do you eat?

PowerPoint Presentation:

hump

PowerPoint Presentation:

There are thorny bushes in the desert. I eat the thorns . The thorns don’t prick my thick tongue. What do you eat in the desert? How funny!

PowerPoint Presentation:

Thorny bushes

PowerPoint Presentation:

thick tongue

PowerPoint Presentation:

Mr King of the Forest, please come with me to the desert .. No, I’d better not. I can’t walk on burning sand, I can’t store food and water and I can’t eat thorns. Good bye and good luck, Mr Ship of the Desert.

Camel -Ship of the Desert.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Adaptations in Camels Adaptations enable an organism to survive in its natural habitat .

PowerPoint Presentation:

Adaptation : Two rows of long eyelashes Function : Protect against blowing sand and the sun. Adaptation : Fat stored in hump(s) Function : Help it to survive long periods without food and water

PowerPoint Presentation:

Adaptation : Long strong legs Function : Help carry heavy loads over long distances and keep its body further away from the hot sand. Adaptation : Broad, flat, leathery pads at the bottom of their hooves Function : Pads spread out when the camel places its feet on the ground thus creating a "snowshoe effect" and preventing the camel from sinking into the sand.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Adaptation : Thick fur and underwool Function : Provide warmth during cold desert nights and insulation against daytime heat Adaptation : Thick leathery patches on knees Function : Protect it from getting burn when it kneels on the hot desert sand
