Compare And Contrast Essay: Cheetahs And Leopards!

This is my essay. I worked really hard on it and I put heaps of effort into it.
Comparing Leopards and Cheetahs.


The Leopards and Cheetahs are really similar but most of the time they are actually quite different. They have a heaps of differences and similarities!


These feline cats are fast and stealthy. Cheetahs can sprint up to 110 – 120 km/h and are also really stealthy because they sneak in the tall grass and they strike their target with a pounce. Leopards can sprint up to 58 km/h and are stealthy by staying low and sneaks through the grass as well.

They both live in the continent of Africa and the south of Asia. They live basically all around Africa and also the south of Asia. They can be found at Kruger National Park, Kgaligadi Transfrontier Park or the Moremi Game Reserve.

They both hunt stealthy and both hunt for small animals. They are carnivores (Eats Meat). They eat gazelles, wildebeest calves, impalas, and smaller hoofed animals in its habitat. On a special occasion Cheetahs and Leopards may eat rabbits, birds, hares, antelopes, and warthogs.

All animals have kingdoms and half are different and half are the same. Cheetahs and Leopards both have the same kingdom and they are from the same family. Their kingdom is called Animalia kingdom, which has Cheetahs, Leopards, Lions, Jaguar, Lynx, Puma and a Domestic Cat, plus they are from the same family.



Cheetahs are the fastest land animal in the world reaching up to speeds of 110 – 120 km/h. They can accelerate up to 0 to 100 km/h in just 3 seconds. When running Cheetahs use their tail to steer like a rudder for a boat. Cheetahs are extremely fast however they tire quickly and can only keep up their top speed for a few minutes before they are too tired to continue.

Cheetahs are really good at hunting for their prey. They use their stealthiness and speed tactically. They use them well by hiding through the long grass to their advantage. Being so quick they are able to capture prey that no other animals are able to catch them. They are easily winded after their incredible bursts of speed. They move low in the grass approaching from all over the place and sometimes using small hole’s and things like that in the land to disguise their approach.

The Cheetah's habitat is mainly the open savannas and grassland areas in various parts of Africa. There also is a small population of cheetahs in Iran. They can be found in the Southern Algeria, Northern Niger and Iran. Cheetahs move from a lot of places because their enemies keep chasing them out of it.


Leopards are still fast like a Cheetah but they aren't as fast. Leopards can sprint up to 58 km/h and they can run half as fast as a cheetah. Leopards can reach a top speed of 30 miles per hour. The fastest animal on Earth is said to be a cheetah, which can reach a top speed of 70 miles per hour.

Leopards are fascinating hunters. The Leopards sneak through things and This African animal will stalk a target over distances of a few hundred meters, or wait in ambush if the target moves towards it. Once it is within a range of about 10 meters, this cat dashes forward and uses the sharp, hooked claws of each forepaw to kill their prey. The killing bite is directed at the nape of the neck or at the throat. Small prey such as mice, rats and small birds are simply swatted to death with a single swipe of a paw.

The habitat of a leopard is found in semi-deserts, savannas, grasslands and rain forests. Leopards live in Sub-Saharan Africa, parts of the Middle East and southern and central Asia, particularly in India and China.

PE Blog Post!

This is a PE blogpost about what we did. I went with Mrs Love for PE. We played this game that was like a combination of cricket and T-ball. There were bowlers and batters. I was captain for my team and Amos was captain for his team. My team started as fielders and Amos team was batters. The game continued for a while and is was repetitive but really fun and tiring. The end score was 10 : 12 to Amos's team.

Here is somes picture of what we did.

Project Topic: Handball (Slide)

Photo/Screenshot of Project (insert below)

Handball 3.pngHandball 2.png

Finish these starters:
  • Something I enjoyed about my project was finding new things about handball that I don’t know. Because I didn’t know much about handball and I learnt a lot from this task.

  • The most challenging thing about my project was finding things that was not easy to write down and things that are obvious. Because I wanted it to be interesting like that people won’t know anything about.

  • The main skill I got better at was Writing interesting facts for anyone. I got better at it by using my imitation muscle from the internet but I didn’t copy and paste.

  • Something interesting I learnt was is that some things are based of different genders.                    

  • What I would most like to change about my project is add more slides and drawings. Because it was fun and I like drawing and adding more facts and things like that.

  • I would like to do my next PBL about SCIENCE

Choose three learning muscles and explain how you used them during your PBL.

Revising because I went back and edited the things that were wrong.

Managing Distractions because I did my work while my friends were talking to me and also I did my work while people did naughty things.

Imitation because when I got stuck I looked at mac’s for an example.

Create a Description of Your Project

This needs to have either video or audio. You can use any app you like. Include a link here. You will embed it as part of your Reflection PBL Blog Post.

Hi Brayden here and today I am going to describe my project. So I did a slide about handball with facts, Equipment and Rules. I like what I have done because some things in my project you might not know about. So that's why I want you to read my project and I hope you learn things about it.
