Zoe and Maya got to go on a field trip with their school this morning. Here is their report:
Where did you go?
Maya: We went to a park.
Zoe: It was Sea Bay Park.
Why did you get to go on a field trip today?
Maya: Because it was a special day.
Zoe: I don’t know why, but maybe to celebrate spring.
How did you get to the park?
Zoe: We rode on a bus. We were not on the bus an hour, but it was maybe a second. I wanted to sit in the back, but I didn’t sit in the back of the bus on the way to the park, but I did on the way back.
Maya: Zoe was on a different bus.
What did you see?
Zoe: We saw pretty flowers and lots of people who were carrying their kids around. We saw a jumping place and it looked like a circus. There was a ferris wheel and merry-go-round, and toys like a circus. We didn’t get to play there, though. Do you think we can go back there?
Maya: We saw our beach on the bus. We saw Mama’s work building.
What did you do?
Maya: The teacher took pictures. We had a picnic outside.
Zoe: We wandered around looking, and then we stopped and watched the waves and then we ate a snack. Then it started to rain so we headed back to the bus.
Did you get wet in the rain?
Zoe: I put on my raincoat from my backpack.
Maya: The teacher had an umbrella and we all bunched up.
Where did you get the food for your picnic?
Zoe: My teacher handed out bags. All the bags had different things.
Maya: Me, too.
What did you eat?
Zoe: I ate a pig in a blanket. Some people ate just a plain pig. And one of my friends had something that looked like ice cream. And there was some kind of cake in our bags. Our drink tasted like strawberry.
Maya: I ate apple. My drink was strawberry, too.
What was the best part of the trip?
Zoe: We saw pretty flowers and when we sat down to eat our snack we saw the waves and lots of people said “wow” because they thought it was cool.
Maya: That we rode on the bus.
