Cheetah Versus Boy

Gresham (age 7) and I are learning about cheetahs this morning. And personal limitations.

So far he’s written that…

  • A cheetah is a mammal.
  • Cheetahs live in the savannah.
  • Cheetahs live in Africa.
  • Cheetahs eat little animals like antelope, hares and baby wildebeest.
  • Cheetahs are covered with fur.
  • Cheetahs can get up to 45 miles an hour in 2 seconds.
  • They can run up to 71 miles per hour.
  • It has very good eyesight.
  • Oh, and one more thing about how fast it can run. It can get up to 60 miles an hour in 3 seconds.

“I’m a lot slower than a cheetah. But I’m faster than a motor scooter. If a cheetah is on a motor scooter chasing me I’m safe.”

This is important stuff for a little animal to know.
