Describe an educational trip you went on in your school days.
You should say:
- what you did
- what you learned from it
- where was the trip
and explain why it was important to you.
I still remember the day when I took an educational trip for the first time as a student of 9th grade. Not to mention, of course, I was very much interested to take part in it as we, together with 50 students from my high school, were going to be taken to one of the biggest zoos of my country.
If I remember it correctly, 4 or 5 teachers visited with us in order to coordinate and supervise the trip.
We started our journey at around 8 a.m. in the morning in a big rented bus. Even though it was a significantly long trip of almost 4 hours, we all felt like we arrived at the zoo soon because the trip itself was very much enjoyable for us. In fact, we all were signing in a chorus and cracking jokes at each other. Anyway, after arriving at the zoo, our teachers made us all stand in the line with a ticket in each of our hands and asked us to enter the zoo one by one in an orderly fashion even though we just couldn’t wait to enter in it as quickly as we could.
And then, we all finally entered inside the zoo, we could see all kinds of animals from such close proximity. Tigers, deer, elephants, cheetahs, rhinos, zebras, waterbucks, otters, hyenas, giraffes, impala, black bears, tapirs, hippos, lions as well many species of monkeys, chimpanzees, baboons. I also saw crocodiles, peacocks along with other birds like Sarus crane and pond heron. We all took our pictures with some of those beautiful animals. We even offered them some foods (with permission from the zoo authority) and the animals were so happy to eat them.
Anyway, the trip was important for me because it taught me about many unknown things about how some of the animals, which we don’t see in our day to day life, actually live. Besides, it also taught me how the presence of these animals around us help preserve our environment and ecosystem around us, without which our earth would be a dangerous place to live in.
