Body paragraph my life

Body Paragraph /My Life

  • Topic Sentence:

  • Water is very important in my life. Everyday I use water to stay clean. Yea Hygiene. This morning I used the toilet. Yea, it’s daily and efficient, and without water my life would be different. Indoor plumbing is a modern miracle that most people around the world do not have. I brush my teeth, take a shower, make coffee with water poured from a faucet. I may not think about it, but turn that water off for a week, and we will all know how essential water is to our lives.

Lake Travis is low and worse than that the area is so arid that we had numerous wild fires that burned hundreds of homes in this area. We need rain. We need water.


Rough draft

Rough Draft

How could we survive without water? Would there be life without H20?

Water is important in my life, the community, and the world.

Indoor plumbing is awesome. Hygiene is something that is important to me. This morning I used

the toilet. Yea, it’s something I use everyday and it is better than an outhouse,

and efficient. Without water my life would be different. Indoor plumbing is a modern miracle

that most people around the world do not have. I brush my teeth, take a shower,

make coffee with water poured from a faucet. I may not think about it, but turn

that water off for a week, and we will all know how essential water is to our lives.

We are currently in the worst drought that this area has seen since the 1950s. Everything is

very dry which has resulted in fires. Open fields and forests are a threat in an extra dry climate.

Last summer we felt that as numerous fires broke out in Bastrop and Austin. The fires then

burned hundreds of homes. It was awful. The needed rain was gone. We needed water and in a

drought fires are one of the results. Our community is still in a drought, and we hope

that the needed rain will come soon so there will be no more wildfires, and no more homes will

be burned.

Water is very important in our world. In many third world countries, they need water to survive. They are not as

prosperous as we are. If they have a drought, it could result in death, as no rain leads to no crops, which leads to no

food, which leads to famine or starvation. I don’t think about it that often, but if I lived in a third world country, water

would be a matter of life and death.

Basically water is important. It increases my quality of life everyday I wake and brush my teeth, wash my face, and

just get clean. If it doesn’t rain in my community it could be disastrous. In the world because of the lack of water

people are dying. Water is important.
