Off to the Museum!

Wednesday was such an exciting day! We arrived at school with our lunches, hats and water bottles all packed and ready to go to the museum. There were so many exciting things to do there, we didn't want to leave at the end of the day! Brad, one of the people who works there, taught us some things about dinosaurs and then showed us how to do some activities. We were junior palaeontologists for the day and spent some time digging for fossils and investigating dinosaurs. It was a lot of fun and we learned lots!

We wrote about our trip to the museum and all the interesting things we did. Here is Samantha, Jay and Jenaya's writing.

We went to the museum. On the bus, I sat near Declan and when we got to Perth, we looked out of the window and looked at the city. We finally got to the museum. When we got off the bus, we had recess and the Pre-Primaries came with us too. After recess, we had photos then we had a lesson. We did dinosaur footprints, a bone puzzle and there were four more activities. Those two were my favourite ones. We had lunch. After lunch, we went in groups and my group went up the bridge. Then, we went on the bus back to school.

We went on a bus to the museum. It was getting very hot on the bus. I saw a lot of things. After the long trip, we finally got to Perth. We were waiting for a guy to come. Then, that guy led us to an activity. We did six activities. We did a puzzle, footprints of dinosaurs and a fossil finding game. Then we had to match fossils. We went into groups and looked around, then we went home.

Yesterday, we went to the museum. We got on the bus. I was sitting next to Tatiana and Sam. It was so hot! When we got off the bus, we had recess. I had an apple and chips. It was yummy. Then, we took a photo on the stairs to put on the blog. Then, we had a lesson with a man named Brad. He talked about dinosaurs. We did activities like sifting sand, dinosaur footprints, fossil searching in rock, bone puzzles (it was hard!), a grid fossil search and a mystery fossil bag. Then, we had lunch. I had a sandwich and cake. Then, we grouped up with our friends. First, we went down the elevator and we looked at dinosaur bones and other things. Then, we went on the bus. I sat next to Makayla and Tatiana. It took an hour, then we got to schoo.
