STEP 1: LISTEN TO THE AUDIOSTEP 2: STUDY VOCABULARY
Our class is going on a field trip next month. Our teacher gave us three options. Our class took a vote. The majority of the class chose to go to the city's largest aquarium. We went to the zoo last year, so we decided to go to the aquarium this year. It's a huge place with so many water species. I can't wait! It's going to be so much fun! I love sea life, so the aquarium is very fun for me. I have been there several times, but it is never boring. My father is a marine biologist, so I know a lot about sea mammals. My favorite mammals are the dolphins and sea lions. I like seals and walruses too. You can see them swim at the aquarium. Sometimes, they swim in the same pool. You have to watch carefully because they come by so quickly. One of my favorite things to do at the aquarium is looking at the starfish. The staff will let you touch them too. You have to be very careful and gentle. It is so cool. My teacher knows that my dad is a marine biologist, so she asked if he could give a short presentation to the class. He is very excited to talk about marine life. It's his passion. He is going to talk to my class next week, so he is going to prepare his slideshow this weekend. We are all so excited about this field trip.
