Knights and Castles

Knights wore armor to protect themselves from everything that people shot at them. Knights used a poleax. It looks like a double ax. They used it to hammer peoples head and to ax things apart. Knights wore any kind of helmet. The helmets were very heavy. This is one type of helmet: Bascinet Pig Face Knight’s Helmet: Closeout Special Motes protected the castle because bad guys couldn't dig under the walls. There is no mote in this picure. I like all of the windows and I think that's funny. Durham Castle (c) FreeFoto.com

Sharks

The image “http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/sharks/world/images/perrine004.jpeg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors. Basking Sharks are my favorite. They have "trapping teeth". The Basking Shark is also called the Elephant Shark. Basking Sharks is as long as my house. They have hundreds of teeth. They could chew a lot of food.
