Our class wrote a recount about our excursion to the Adelaide Zoo. Here are some of the students recounts.
I got to school and when I got in my classroom we had to line up and walk to the bus. I sat next to my new best friend. When everyone was on the bus we left. It started out fun but then it got boring and bumpy. We finally got there. We got of the bus and had some fruit. Everyone went in and saw the hippo cage. Then we saw the crocodiles and lots more. Then we went with this zookeeper and we saw some kangaroos. We then went with Angela the Zoo Teacher. She taught us how to sort out animals into groups. We saw lots more animals, then we sat down on some grass and saw a really cool parrot show. We also saw some lions, tigers, monkeys, seals and hippos. Then we left. I wish we didn’t have to leave.
We left at 8.00am. When we first got on the bus, it was boring. Finally we got off and we had to have some fruit. Then we went into the Zoo. We saw otters and wild things and we saw monkeys on the way to the education centre room. We got to touch the animal skins then we went to the park and ate our lunch and then we played . On the way back to the bus we saw a hippo then we got on the bus. When we got back we went home.
On Wednesday, I was so excited to go to school that I woke up at 7.00 o’clock because we were going to the zoo. So I got ready really fast and Mum took me to school, so I would not miss the bus. I got there just in time! The bus started and it was cool but took a while. We saw heaps of animals on the way but finally we got there. When we got off the bus Mrs Warner had to talk to the people that got the money and the kids ate some fruit. Next we went to the Education Centre and then the teacher, Angela came out and said we were half and hour early, so we went and saw a wombat then a meerkat. Next we went back to the Education Centre and it was time to go in the room and we could have look and feel time around the room. Then she clapped her hands and we went on the mat and we learnt how to sort animals into groups. Next we went and saw more animals like the giraffes and hippos, sea lions – one was sleeping and the other one was swimming. We also saw alpacas, guinea pigs and rabbits, kangaroos and monkeys. We saw the flying macaw show. It was terrific; the macaw kept flying over our head. Then unfortunately we had to leave the zoo. We were a tiny bit late back but that’s okay. The zoo was terrific!
On Wednesday, I was really excited we were leaving at 8.00 and we were going on the bus to the zoo. First we got of the bus. We were eating our fruit and we were waiting for the parent helpers. When they got there we went into the zoo. When we got into the zoo, we went into the children’s zoo and patted some of the animals. It was fun. Then we went to the Education Centre and Angela was the teacher at the zoo and she showed us some stuff. Then it was time to leave so we got on the bus and came back to school. The End.
Our class was going on an excursion to the zoo. We left at 8 o’clock. On the bus we got to sit with anyone we wanted to, at first it was fun then it wasn’t. When we got off the bus we went onto the lawn and ate our fruit, while we waited for the parents. At the zoo we walked down to the education centre but we were 30 minutes early so we went for a walk then we came back. Angela the Zoo teacher talked to us about some animals that were vertebrates and invertebrates and also showed us some animals skins. Now I know if a creature is an invertebrate or a vertebrate because of if it has an exoskeleton or not. We had lunch at the zoos playground and it was exciting. at the playground – it was one of the best things at the zoo. We saw a blue macaw show. Once it swooped me!! And we saw hippos, gibbons, and I cant remember the rest! The trip was fantastic and I really wanted to go again!
