My Weta Poem




Although your ears on your legs
silent at night, you make no sound
You burrow a hole and lay eggs in a mound
creeping at night stealthily
easy to camouflage difficult to see
often found beneath the beech tree
Omnivore, eater of plants and invertebrates
searching for Kai nocturnally
Brown stripes, skinny legs  with spikes
one kick from it's legs stings like bee
night time predator hunting prey
Only a stoat or rat can make you flee
between grassland,  shrubland and forest
Your  habitat is likely to be leafy
It is called a ground weta for a reason
digging in its burrow searching deeply

First you take the face value of the number e.g 5 then you multiply it by the place value to get the full value. So 5 multiplied by the hundreds is 500. You do that with the whole number to get the full value.
