Have you ever thought about having super powers? I have. Wouldn’t it be awesome?! If people had powers think of all the possibilities! With super speed we wouldn’t need cars, with the ability to fly we wouldn’t need airplanes and with super strength we wouldn’t need big machines. That sounds like we would also create a lot less pollution and that would help the Earth. The grass would definitely be greener.
If I could choose any super power it would be shape-shifting. I could use it in a lot of different ways. When I’m playing baseball I’d shape -shift into a gorilla to hit really far and then into a cheetah so I could run around the bases before anyone could get the ball. I bet I’d be home before it even touched the ground. Helping myself do things is one way I’d use my power. Another would be helping people. If a kind fisherman was having trouble catching a fish I’d shape-shift into a sea otter grab a fish and place it on his hook. I wouldn’t turn into a seal because I’d probably want to eat it and that wouldn’t help me. It would only help my hunger problem. I’d look for other people that need help too.
I would use my powers for good, truth, and justice. The problem is that other people might not. Spiderman’s Uncle Ben told Peter Parker that “with great power comes great responsibility” and I know if I had this power I’d use it to fight crime. Every superhero feels this way. The only bad thing is this would probably take up a lot of time and I might miss episodes of my favourite TV shows. I’d just have to get used this or buy a PVR to tape my shows.
I’d like to know which power you’d choose. Please take my survey below. I know the best super powers are combined but for my survey I’m just asking you to pick one. You could always leave me a comment to tell me which ones you would want together. Thank you.

Last night was an exciting night. At 8:00pm I went to the park with my friends and my sister. My mom and younger brother were supposed to come a little later but something stopped them!
About 9:30 pm my friends and I came home to my place. We went inside my house but we couldn’t find my mom. We looked in the back yard and then my sister yelled “I see her! I see her!”. She was in the yard across the street with our neighbour and my little brother trying to catch a bunny!
It was a little white bunny and my mom was crouching down chasing him. I was curious about what was going on so I ran over but my mom sent me back home because I could have scared the bunny and there were enough people helping. My mom was trying to help the bunny but it didn’t know that so it kept running away. The bunny belonged to the house across the street and its owners were camping so they didn’t know the bunny had escaped. He dug a hole under the fence and couldn’t find his way back to it.
Finally my mom caught the bunny, but he squirmed which made my mom drop him and then he got really scared. Then, another neighbour came to help. The neighbour brought his son which wasn’t much help because he moved too fast for the bunny which made it super scared and harder to catch. It was frustrating for my mom because she almost had gotten it and she had been trying for over an hour. She tried feeding it clover, lettuce, carrot and celery to get close enough to it so someone could pick it up. A second idea they had was trying to put a cardboard box over top of it to scoop it up. None of these worked because the bunny was too fast and not hungry.
After an hour and a half the bunny must have been worn out because our neighbor was finally able to grab him. He ran to the bunny cage and put it inside and almost dropped it a couple times! Then my mom locked it up and made sure it had food and water and the next day we checked on it to make sure it wasn’t too hot. When the neighbours got back we told them about our bunny adventure and they said thanks for helping the bunny out. They said we were nice people and we can check on the bunny whenever they’re gone. I really like the little bunny and I plan on visiting it soon.
