Day at the Museum
The class was almost at the end of their tour. Most students had shown interest as Mrs. Martin guided them though various exhibits.
They all followed the teacher into the next room. It contained scenes from the American civil war and the Wild West. They saw a group of soldiers carrying a flag3 in one display, and some Native Americans sending messages4 with fire5.
Finally, they arrived in a room titled “The Future”. Here the kids were allowed to touch things and do experiments. It didn’t take long for Johnny to drop something8 on the floor, causing a mess. The teacher spotted the exit9 and ushered the students toward it.
On the bus ride home, Mrs. Martin reminded them that there would be a small quiz about what they saw. The students eyes rolled and shoulders slumped at the thought of a perfectly good day being ruined by “learning”.
