That day at 8 a.m. we went to the zoo by bus, there we sang funny songs and one of the teachers taught us how to do different figures in a piece of paper. After 4 hours, we arrived at the zoo and we went to some games to have fun. We had fun in a rollercoaster among other games, but then we were tired, so we decided to rest. We rested in a train that carried us around the zoo to watch different animals. We could see a giraffe that was walking. Also, there were a lot of beautiful monkeys and hippos. Moreover, we went to see an amazing dolphin show, in which the dolphins performed excellent shows. I liked it so much because I had never seen a dolphin show in my whole life. After that, we ate delicious sandwiches and drank sodas. Later, some of my partners went to different places around the zoo. Consequently, they got lost, so we had to look for them. When they appeared, the teacher scolded them, and finally, we had to abandon the place. We were sad, but anyway we were making noise. Suddenly, the bus was advancing slowly and then it stopped, the teacher let us know that the bus was damaged, my partners and I were worried about staying there all the night, but we only were there around 3 hours. After that, the chauffeur could fix the bus and we continued our way, while another teacher told us a horror story.

CONCLUSION

The concluding paragraph (or conclusion) ,

Describe the outcome (result) of the event

Comment on the experience (why it was important to you or how it changed your life)

explain what lessons you learned from the experience.

For example:

We were thankful to the chauffeur because he fixed the bus and we could arrive atour homes. I learned that I should be patient in some situations of my life and that not all the things will be ok. We have to think in a positive way to have success in life.

THINKING IN A POSITIVE WAY

Have you ever felt happiness and worry in one day? I lived one of the strangest moments of my life when I went to a summer course with other people.
