The Sky is Falling
by: Richard E., Grade: 5


The Sky is Falling And it's Dooms Day For The Dinosaurs

A meteor bigger then Mount Everest streaks across the sky and slams in to Mexico at an angle of 30 degrees.The impact gouges out a crater 120 miles wide and sends inclendecent plume of vaporized rock arcing towards the northwest at speeds of 10 miles per second.In minutes, everything for hundreds of miles is incinerated.In South Dakota plants and animals suffer a different fate.Some are scolded by the heat, others succumb to shockwave generated by the collisions.An hour after impact a cloud of dust and debris settles over North America. Temperatures drop and acid rain begins to fall. Nitrogen burned by the heat is washed out of the atmosphere.The sun wont shine again for months.First light reveals the devastation.90% of all leaf bearing trees and plants have been obliterated and 70% of the animals have vanished.Most of the dinosaurs are now extinct.
