Day 18 Activity 1 (Zoo)

It’s time to go to the zoo! I have been invited to tour the national zoo with some students from one of the local schools. Although I don’t really know anyone I decided to be brave and give it a go!. When I arrive at the front gates, I walk into the zoo and suddenly see a hippo and a giraffe type walking and dancing at the same time. I see a zebra with a rainbow wig going CRAZY!. I also see all kind of thing like a gorilla with a Tutu and doing Belle, a tiger jumping through burning hot fired little rings, and monkeys putting on a show. The monkeys put on a show by jumping on to another monkeys head, the monkeys make everyone laugh. 

All though I know that this is a lot of fun but I don't know were to start. I diced to go to the jumping tiger. The person who train the tiger said that "his name is Sammy and he will jump through any ring". The person who train the tiger said "who would like to volunteer and sit down while Sammy jumps through the hole. No one put their hand up so she just picked some one random so she closed her eyes and spun and pointed and of course her hand landed on ME!. I got really nervous but  I decided to be brave and I gave it a go. as soon as I sat dow Sammy jumped and did not touch me at all. I was so relieved. Next I went to the MONKEYS that were pretty funny, the monkeys made me laugh😂 I even teared up, happy tears. Then I went to the type walking hippo and giraffe I look up and I enjoyed all of it I didn't have enough time to see the gorilla I  was quite sad but I still had a good time.

  1. Kia ora Jahzara,

    Wow! What a detailed and interesting story. It sounds like you had the chance to see a number of pretty cool animals when you went to the zoo. I'm sorry to read that you didn't have time to get to the gorilla. Fortunately, it sounds like you had time to visit the hippos, giraffes, tigers, and monkeys. I have never heard of danving monkeys or tigers who jump through rings. Wow - you have a great imagination!

    I wonder if these things happen in real zoos. I can imagine that there are some circuses in the world where animals have been trained to jump through hoops and perform scary stunts. Everytime I think of stunts like these I think of the Disney movie, Dumbo. Have you seen it? Aronui loves it - I think that he likes the fact that Dumbo and his mom are reunited in the end and they get to live happily ever after.

    I have to admit that I love stories that have a happy ending. What about you?
