Asmah's trip to the Museum
My Trip to the Museum
I could hardly wait to go to the Auckland Museum. Rooms 5, 6, 7 and 8 went to the Museum because we were learning about treasures that the Museum had. It was Tuesday November 1st. The parent helpers were Roswell`s Grandma, Jarred and Cody`s Dad, Mrs Kelly and Miss Paton.
When we got off the bus we were looking for the entrance to the Museum but unfortunately they would not let school groups in the Museum. So the senior team and room 8 went to the back entrance of the Museum. When we got in the Museum a worker told us to go upstairs to have our morning tea. After that we went to the Natural Discovery area.
In Miss Paton`s group was Veisinia, Asmah, Viola, Silas, Jonathan and Chantelle. There was an ostrich, a moa and lots of birds, eggs and dinosaur bones. The egg of the moa could hold 60 eggs of a hen.
Next we went to the Land and Sea area. When we got into the Land and Sea area I saw lots of fish. Next we went to the Volcano room. In the Volcano room there was a big T.V. showing a news broadcast. Suddenly the room started to shake. I felt like I was in a real volcano erupting. I felt like screaming but I didn`t, instead I just closed and my ears.
After the Volcano room we had our yummy lunch. After lunch we went to the ground floor where there were lots of Pacifika treasures. In the Pacifika area there were masks, drums and a hawaiian clock.
Next we went to watch a video about the Maori Rugby team. It was set in the olden days.
Soon it was time for Rooms 5, 6, 7 and 8 to go back to school because it was two clock. So every one went into the bus. Room 5 and 6 in one bus and Room 7 and 8 in an other. So we went to school and went home.
I enjoyed my time at the Auckland Museum looking at all the treasures.
