Russia Report


Did you know Russia is the biggest country in the world? Russia is 6.6 square miles long. There are millions of people living in the country.

Firstly, did you know that Russia has over one hundred and forty three million, three hundred and sixty nine thousand, six hundred and sixty two people living in the country? That is quite a lot. The total land area is 16,299,981 Km long.
Russia's population is equivalent to 1.91% of the total world population.

Secondly, Russia has a variety of native animals like the Amur Tiger. The Amur Tiger has five times better night vision than humans. The Amur Tiger came close to extinction. But is no longer close to extinction thanks to the help of scientists. They save the Amur Tiger by protecting them in a zoo.The karakurt spider is among the 10 most dangerous spiders on Earth. The bite causes pain, which quickly passes but after a while between 15 minutes and 6 hours, intense pain spreads throughout the bitten limb and then to the muscles of the body, chest and abdomen. Immediately after the bite within two minutes at the most, you can hold a burning match against the bitten place. Any poison that has not already flowed into the body is destroyed by the heat. Russian animals are really cool and there is a lot of native animals in Russia.

Thirdly, in Russia they speak Russian, Russian dictionaries have 130,000 to 150,000 words in them. Cyril and Methodius invented the alphabet in Russia they were brothers. Almost seven million out of 145 million people speak English in Russia.

In conclusion, Russia is a very big country, that has loads of native animals living in it as well as people. Russia has very big dictionaries that will be very boring to find one word.

In Week two Te Ngahere had to write a country report about our chosen country. We were learning to write an informational report. Every time we went to a workshop we would get a new WALT like use semicolons in my writing. I really enjoyed writing informational reports. I wrote five reports.

  1. Hi Alexis:
    I found reading your information report about Russia really interesting because I never knew they were so much people living there. I found the facts about animals really interesting to me because I never knew they were dangerous. One thing I learnt was that the Amur Tight has better sight than humans.
    I would really like to how you got so much information?
