Should animals be kept in zoos?

Should animals be kept in zoos?  No!!!!  Here's some reasons why.
Animals need to be free, not locked up in a cage.  If they are in a cage they can't run in the wild.  But when they're not in the zoo they can do anything they want.
Another reason is that in zoos the animals like lions won't know how to catch food, but in the wild they can learn from their Mum and Dad.  In the zoo they have nothing to practice on.........   (Elliot)

I think animals should be kept in zoos.  Why?
Because people can see animals that they have never seen before, like kiwi and pandas.  Would you normally get to see these animals if they weren't in zoos? If native animals or wild animals get hurt they can get help if they are in zoos.  But if they are in the wild they can't get the same treatment because there are no vets in the wild......  (Samantha)

How would you feel if you got watched over all day and night?  Have you ever thought about the animals behind glass in their animal prison - 'the zoo'?
When animals are in zoos they only have little amounts of space to run around in.  It's like being in a cage for years.  But when they're not in zoos, they can roam free and play-fight with other members of their herds.
Animals in zoos aren't in their natural habitat....... (Jess)

Should animals be kept in zoos?  I don't think so!   Here's some reasons why.
They need a big space to run round and not to run round in that tiny spot.  They can roam free in the amazing wild!  There shouldn't be zoos!  The animals would be happier with a more adventurous life.  We would love to see animals at zoos but their life is more fun without getting pointed at and laughed at.
Don't animals need to hunt for their own food? Well we know that wild animals in the zoo only get a bit of food, but what would happen if there wasn't enough food.  EVERY ANIMAL WILL START A FIGHT!!!! Then the zookeepers would get angry at them and take the food off them.
Getting laughed at by strangers?  I don't think so!..... (Mac)

I strongly believe that animals shouldn't be in zoos.  Here's why.
It's not very nice because it's not their proper habitat, life or environment.  So how would you like to be in a zoo and taken away from your environment?
Another reason - how would you like to be taken away from your family?  Imagine if you were a baby zebra - scared, afraid, lost, in a place surrounded by glass, with animals that might kill you or scare you..... (Lucy)

Ice Cream

Do you want a scrumptious great for a boiling summer day?  Well, if you do, follow these instructions to make delicious home-made vanilla ice-cream!  

Firstly, you need half a cup of milk, one tablespoon of sugar, 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla essence, ice and 3/4 cup of salt.  You also need a big bag and a small bag to put some ingredients in to.

Next, pour the milk, sugar and vanilla essence into the opened little bag.  Then mix the ingredients a little so they can blend in a little.  Then seal the bag up.  That's the main mixture done.

After you've made the main mixture, you then need to grab the big bag and the bag of ice.  When the big bag is open tip half the bag of ice into it.  After that find the 3/4 cup of salt and chuck the salt into the big bag, being careful not to drop the cup into the bag otherwise the cup will make ice stick to the sides of the cup!

When you have put the salt in the big bag, put the sealed little bag into the big bag.  Then seal the big bag and SHAKE, SHAKE, SHAKE!

Finally, you can open the big bag and grab the little bag out.  If the bag isn't solid, put the little bag in to the big bag then seal the bag and keep on shaking.  If the little bag is solid, open up and enjoy.  You could put in some chocolate or leave something out.  I hope you have fun making ice-cream!
