A gradual slope contains the plants, gravel and loamy sand, a wall keeps them separate from the swimming area. Vacuum but twice a year and tend to the plants as needed.

Animal Mystery - English Questions Game You can set this page as a homework task for a group of students; doing so will give you a record of who has completed the task. Visit the teacher's section for more information. You can share this page by using the link below. The aim of this game is to help students learn English - specifically ESL (English as a second language). This game is useful for practicing animal related words and phrases. The object of the game is to guess the eight hidden animals that are presented, one at a time, behind a question mark. Some of the items may seem a bit ambiguous or strange; it is quite hard to think of enough forms that can be used to describe a range of animals. I hope that this game can be useful practice for forming questions with matching of question words and auxiliaries. This game should work on mobiles and tablets but please leave a comment if it does not do so.
