A Surprise Trip to the Zoo

Today my class took a surprise trip to the zoo.the trip was was the best trip I've ever experienced in my life so far.

While we were walking on the sidewalk on top of the gorilla cage Mr.C fell in the gorilla pit.The gorillas didn't like him so they chased him all around the cage.When they finally reached him they started beating him up.It was funny.

When he got out we went to the alligator pit. That's when Mr.C picked up a stick and poked the alligator.The alligator didn't like Mr.c so he gobbled him up.I ran to the zoo keeper and Francisco was there.I told him Mr.C was gobbled up by an alligator. He didn't believed me so he left.

While we were waiting for help to come Francisco came back to the group.He didn't have a shirt on.We asked him what had happened.He said a monkey stole his shirt ,but what had truly happened was he was modeling for the giraffe.The giraffe didn't like Francisco because he was too short for her so the giraffe chased him.

When our bus came we were just about to leave when we noticed jason was missing.We waited for one more hour when he finally showed up.We asked where he was the whole time.He said two hippos were fighting over him and chasing him around the zoo.

After that zoo trip i never wanted to take another trip too the zoo.I figured it was dangerous.

    Wow, Brandon, this zoo sounds extremely dangerous. Are you sure you were not on a safari? I loved all the excitement in your story.

        I enjoyed reading both of your stories. I think it is really great that you read each others' stories and commented. Sharing and talking about your writing will help you keep improving; keep sharing ideas, too, and being creative.

    This was a really exciting story and I especially like your attention to detail in the way you described each part. What advice would you give to younger kids travelling to this zoo to make sure they stay safe and have a fun time?

      I would tell them to stay away from the alligators and gorillas because they're the dangerous ones.They will beat you up then swallow you.

    I really enjoyed reading this story. I like the way you acted like it was a true story and made the reader figure it out. Any sequels? Maybe about class post-Mr. C?

    I don't believe that an alligator would gobble up Mr C...something tells me he tastes a bit sour...I also can't believe you responded to all the comments on your post! You are a great example to me to follow on my own blog.
