There was a bird name Ben. Ben was lonely bird with a home in the tree. His home was not as big as he wanted it to be, and he didn't have enough room for his friends. He had planned out an idea to find a new home. He also thought if he found a new home his friends might want to hang out.
BEN THE BIRD & HIS ADVENTURE TO FIND A NEW HOME BY: Dajhia Sangster
The next morning, Ben left his home to adventure out for a new place to call home. He landed on top of an old building when he realized he could just build a new home. So he left to find hay so he could build his new home.
Later that afternoon Ben continued searching for hay for his new home. When he made it to town he noticed a stack of hay sitting on a bench. Ben was sitting 15ft away looking at the hay at a 67º angle, and he wonders how high up he is sitting. So he uses trig. He does tan(67)∙15 = 35.3. He realizes he is about 35 ft high.
Ben thought about how hard it would be to get the hay back to his new home, and decided to leave it. He comes across another stack of hay in a field. Ben is 10ft above the ground, and his angle from the hay stack is 66º. Ben then decides to use trig to find out how far away the hay is. He finds out that 10/(tan66) = 4.45 . He is only 4.5tan(66) feet away, but he still wanted to look for better hay.
Ben started to give up hope on ever finding hay for his new home. In the distance he saw the perfect pile of hay in a tree. Since Ben is standing 6 ft away from the 8 foot tree, to find the angle of elevation he uses trig again. He figures out that the angle is tan^−1 (8/6) =53.1°.
Ben carries the new hay to a cave he sees past the tree line. He sets up his nest inside the cave and calls to his friends. They all come from their own homes in the trees to check out Ben's new place. They love it! Ben and his friends are excited about his new home
