The sea challenge, by Bear Grylls
I have learnt about ecosystem that the way all the different animals and plants in an area live together. Plants grow, small animals eat the plants, big animals eat the small animals, big animals die, they decay into the ground and fertilize the plants so they can grow. It is the circle of life – where everything depends on everything else. I like this story. I think taking care of our world is important.

There are so many awesome things to discover about our world.
The land we live on, the animals that share it, different cultures, ancient times, volcanoes, earthquakes and World Wars. Not to mention us! Now that is a very interesting and complicated topic.
The National Geographic Kids website is a great place to visit and just have fun discovering all sorts of interesting things about our planet and everything on and in it. We can even go a little bit further and explore space and beyond. For instance I discovered that there are more stars in the universe than grains of sand on all the beaches on Earth. That’s at least a billion trillion. Wow – amazing. I also learnt that a new skyscraper goes up in China every 5 days and that all the blood in my body travels through my heart every minute.
I love this website – there are so many great and interesting things to discover.
