dinosaur Last week, we went on a fantastic trip to the Museum of (NATURE) History, which is (LOCATE) only a few blocks away from our school. On (ARRIVE) our guide was waiting for us and told us what we were going to see.

The most exciting part of the museum was the section on (HISTORY) animals. We stared in (AMAZE) at all the skeletons of species that became extinct millions of years ago.

There was a special (EXHIBIT) on dinosaurs, creatures that have fascinated us for a long time. The guide gave us some interesting facts about these (GIANT) creatures. The Tyrannosaurus Rex, for example, reached a (HIGH) of over 6 metres. The Seismosaurus was probably the longest dinosaur with an estimated (LENGTH) of up to 40 metres.

The only (ADVANTAGE) of the trip was that there was not enough time to see all the interesting things the museum offered. Towards the end it got very (CROWD) and our guide informed us that it would be better if we came during the morning hours.

At the end of the tour, she thanked us for our (PATIENT) and attention and asked for feedback. She gave us a sheet of paper on which we could write down (SUGGEST) and (IMPROVE) for future school groups. After two hours in one of the most incredible buildings I have ever seen we went back to school.
