Easter Island is found in the South Pacific. It is the most isolated place in the world. If you get on a boat it would take a long time to get to different countries. It’s a very small island too.

They made a lot of statues. The statues were made of moai, “a soft volcanic kind of rock”. Statues were put all around the island. Trees is what they used to roll the statues to different places.

Their natural resource’s ran out quickly. Wood is one of them, because they used it to carry statues around. Houses were also built with wood. Boats were built with wood too.

If I could trick or treat anywhere, I would go to Transylvania. First, I think I will see vampires with blood on their fangs. I’ll see ghosts. I will also see witches on broomsticks flying through the sky.

I think I’ll hear screaming. I will also hear rattling chains. The most terrifying noise will be the clashing bones.

What will happen to me? I will probably get chased by bats. Then, run into a vampire. The vampire will try to suck my blood and try to kill me but, at the last minute I will look in my treat bag for anything that will stop a vampire. Boy will I be glad to get far away from there. I will love to get away from there.

Tennessee is a beautiful place

to live. The mountains in the east reach to the sky in a smoky haze. The green grass carpets the state. Luscious streams water the thirsty land. I think Tennessee is a picture-perfect place.
