Rank 9 Out of 10
"Maria, I'm going for shopping" said Mrs Parker to her daughter."Ok mom, but can you tell me at what time will you be coming back?" asked Maria. "An Hour Maria" said Mrs Parker, and she went out to start the car. Mrs Parker was on her way to shopping and Maria was left alone in the house and she had nothing to do. She went up to her room and began to read books about Insects; suddenly she saw a Shining thing coming out of her garden. She went down to see what it was. It was a beautiful flower! For a second Maria didn't know what to do. She stands there like a statue. She was perishing with fear. She slowly touches the flower and clouted it from the grass. Then Maria saw that everything was changing. Everything was becoming so BIG and she was becoming so small. She looked up and saw that she was in a jungle. She was searching everywhere to get out of the place but she couldn't. Then she saw someone coming. It was an Ant, a ladybird, a butterfly and a bee."Hello!!!" said all of them together. "Hi I'm Maria" said Maria, "who are you?"We are insects!! Nice to meet you!! Said all of the insects together."Do you know where I am?" asked Maria."You are in the world of insects "said the ant."Would you like to see our world""Ok! Let’s go" said Maria. The Ant showed Maria where he lives."This is the place" said the Ant, "we live here in this hole in the walls and we use to work with other Ants, quiet fascinating isn't it?.We all go to people homes and take meat and any other food we could find. It’s really beautiful if you see the world of Ants. Do you know there are more than 12,000 species of ants all over the world and they can lift 20 times its own body weight. We don’t have ears. We only "hear" by feeling vibrations in the ground through our feet. Like all insects, we have six legs. Each of our leg has three joints. Our legs are very strong so they can run very quickly. Do you know our brain has about 250 000 cells. And our average life is 45-60 days."We have two eyes, and each of our eyes is made of many smaller eyes."Really! are all these things true?" asked Maria "Of course Maria "said the Ant."Now it’s my turn to show Maria my world" said the lady bird."Let’s go, shall we?"."Ok Lets go" Said Maria. The Ladybird shows the place where she uses to live."This is the place" said the ladybird."We live in vegetations, with some species preferring trees and hedges while my other relatives and friends lives in along wetlands and river banks. We eat plant lice both as adult and larva. We are best known for our spotted body (normally red and black, but often orange and yellow are found), and our ability is to rid gardens of their aphid pests affectively. We have size legs that are black in colour and we also have brightly coloured shell, which protects our wings which are concealed beneath the spots. We are known to hibernate once the warm summer weather begins to cool....""I hate to intercept, but I am starving" said Maria."Can you give something to eat""Of course Maria" said the ladybird."Come on" The Ladybird showed Maria the table where her family used to eat. Together they all sit together and waited for the food .The lady bird brought slugs, worms and a coconut juice for everyone. Maria felt vomited but she didn't show her impression."Why aren't you eating the food". Asked the ladybird."No I'm fine" said Maria" I will drink the coconut juice"."Ok suits yourself" said the ladybird “So..." said Maria to the ladybird."As you were saying”. "Oh yes" said the ladybird."We usually lay more than 2,000 eggs in one year that hatch in just a few days. And do you know there are over five thousand species of ladybirds. Totally coooooooool!" "Yeah really coooooooool" said Maria."Now enough of this" said the bee. "It’s my turn to show Maria about my world, come with me Maria "The bee shows Maria where he lives. "This is our place" said the bee."We live in hives as all of the people know about it. We suck flowers. And There are over 12000 species of bees. We are only insect that produces food eaten by man. We often visit 50 to 100 flowers during a collection trip. We have six legs, two eyes, and two wings, a nectar pouch, and a stomach. And do you know our wings beat 11400 times per minute. We can even not recognize the colour red. We can create honey for more than 150 million years. "Oh my" said Maria. "Are there any types of bees""Of course Maria" said the bee."There is a bee colony which consists of 20,000-60,000 honeybees and one queen. There are drone bees which they do not work at all, have no stinger, but they do mating. There are worker bees that produce 1/12th of a teaspoon of honey. There is a metallic green bee which is known for their habit of licking sweat from people or animals."."Maria listen to me "said the butterfly."Leave the bee world and come and see my world""Hey that’s not fair" said  the bee."Why are you forcing her to come with you""Because she will soon go to her real world and she wouldn't have time to see my world!!!" "Ok Lets go then "The butterfly showed Maria her world."This is the place" said Maria. We live all over the place. It’s quite wonderful. There are over 25,000 species of butterflies. We can only fly if our body temperature is over 86 degrees. We can only see red, green and yellow. We can lay between 100 to 4,000 eggs. We attach our eggs to leaves with special glue. We have 4 wings Do you know that Maria?" No, that’s really fascinating! "said Maria "Please continue and tell me more about you"
There is a fastest flying butterfly which is called Monarch, which has been clocked with a speed as high as 17 miles per hour. The largest butterfly is the Queen Alexandra's bird wing butterfly from Papua New Guinea. The wingspan of the butterfly can reach to be almost one foot.And do you know that he original name for the butterfly was 'flutterby'! Oh wow !! said Maria. How wonderful!!....Maria!!!,Maria!!! Where are you? Mrs Parker was home now with her shopping things and was calling Maria."It’s time for me to go, thank you for the description of yourself" said Maria"I will see you sooon! Bye""Your welcome, Bye" said all insects together.
Maria touches the same flower she touches before and suddenly she was back to normal size. She ran to her Mother."Thank goodness Maria said Mrs Parker I thought you were Kidnapped!! Where were you anyway?"
 Maria told her mother the whole story. But her mother didn't believe her instead she asked her to go to bed. The next day Maria went to school, the teacher suddenly announces a surprise test for everyone. You all have to come here and give a speech about insects! Said the teacher I am taking this test, so I can check your brain level. And it carries 10 MARKS! Maria was excited because she had learned all about insects on the previous day. The whole class was surprise at her speech. And in fact the whole class at least got 5 marks in the test but Maria got full marks.
