In class 5, we continue the class 4 Human Being and the Animal Kingdom studies. Class 5 children begin history lessons with stories of Ancient India. Class 5 children as a part of their projects wrote these poems about Indian animals.
My Poem The Cow
The Zebu is strong
It pulls heavy loads
It walks many miles
Along the roads
It likes lots of things
They are big, fat, and floppy
I Love Tigers
This beautiful mammal I love because it’s big, furry and orange with black stripes. It may look cuddly but when you get up to it, it is not very nice! They can jump high and they are beautiful. It’s so sad that people are killing them!
A tiger eats meat
It uses its feet to catch its prey and eat it all day
That’s how a tiger catches
Tigers are terrifying
I like Tigers, don’t you?
Great animals don’t you think?
Roaring means it is angry.
In the dark shadows of the grasses tall,
Stalks a fiercesome creature feared by all.
Stealthily he pads in search of prey,
All in his path run quickly away.
A stampede of buffalo alerts his keen ears
In a leap and a bound all obstacles he clears
He attacks without warning and drags his prey home
Back to the shadows to feast alone.
Why I Chose the Tiger
I chose the tiger because tigers are fierce and strong. The tiger is also not afraid of much; the opposite to me, that’s why I admire the tiger.
