Text 1:

Snakes are reptiles (cold-blooded creatures). They belong to the same group as lizards (the scaled group, Squamata) but from a sub-group of their own (Serpentes)
Snakes have two legs but a long time ago they had claws to help them slither along.
Snakes are not slimy. They are covered in scales which are just bumps on the skin. Their skin is hard and glossy to reduce friction as the snake slithers along the ground
Snakes often sun bake on rocks in the warm weather. This is because snakes are cold-blooded and they need the sun’s warmth to heat their boy up.
Most snakes live in the country. Some types of snakes live in trees, some live in water, but most live on the ground in deserted rabbit burrows, in thick, long grass and in old logs
A snake’s diet usually consists of frogs, lizards, and mice and other snakes. The Anaconda can eat small crocodiles and even boars.
Many snakes protect themselves with their fangs. Boa Constrictors can give you a bear hug which is so powerful it can crush every single bone in your body. Some snakes are protected by scaring their enemies away like the Cobra. The flying snakes glides away from danger. Their ribs spread apart and the skin stretches out. Its technique is just like the sugar glider’s

A theatre is a place where people entertain the audience. The people who perform, called actors and actresses, act in plays on a stage. A stage can be raised platform, or it can be a part of the floor in a room, either in the centre of the room or against a wall. The audience, is very important part of a theatre because it is for the audience that the actors and actresses act, and the playwright writes. Without an audience, they are only rehearsing or practicing.
A theatre can be anywhere- in home, school auditorium, park and a hall. Theatre means action. In this text, theatre is used in connection with performances on stage by live actors and actresses. It is living theatre.
