Transcript: $2,373.54 U.S. dollars or 21,066.83 Egyptian Pound Sources The Trip To Cairo, Egypt We are going to be staying in a luxury home in the city of Cairo, Egypt. What are we using to travel? What type of housing are we staying in? What clothes do you need to pack? What type of transportation will you use once you arrive? You can travel by foot, a car, a bike, or a bus. The bus fair is 1 Egyptian Pound (0.11 cents). The housing that the locals (Cairenes) live in are apartments, hotels, huts, and smaller homes. Only the wealthy can afford to live in free-standing houses because space is difficult to find. Men and women usually live at home with their parents until they get married. Traditionally, extended families lived together, however, with the new situation in Cairo - as houses were abandoned in favor of apartments - the traditional family has given way to the nuclear family.

Transcript: by Sydney, Jesus, Amanda Africa savanna Tigers are the only big cats that like water African savanna Sources http://www.ducksters.com/geography/africa.php http://www.sciencekids.co.nz/sciencefacts/animals/tiger.html http://traveltips.usatoday.com/plants-african-savanna-61383.html speed 35mph weight 440-990 pounds African savannas get 30 inches of rain a year in summer Soil Speed 60 mph weight 45-60 pounds zebras run in zigzags when being chased gum tree zebras ears show their mood When running cheetahs only run on 1 leg zebras are black with white stripes. Cheetah The soil found on the savanna stays very porous, allowing for fast water drainage during the rainy season. The plants get most of their nutrients from a thin layer of humus made up of partially decomposed plant or animal matter. Bermuda Grass In the summer african savannahs get to 78F-86F in spring and fall it gets to 68F-78F Tiger The most common wind speed is 12 miles per hour Cheetahs can spot prey from 500 feet away Several species of trees have adapted to the savanna. The tree produces small leaves during the wet season that keep water loss to a minimum when the dry season occurs. The tree stores large amounts of water in its large trunk to help it survive the long dry spell. Plants The tiger is the biggest wild cat. Acadia - tree Zebra If a tiger loses one big tooth they have no choice but to die. The spots on cheetahs backs are on their skin not their fur When fire hits the savanna good-the fire burns the grass and makes the green plants come up bad-the fire could kill the young anamals Tigers have been known to reach speeds up to 40 mph. Less than 10% of hunts end successfully for tigers
