At The Bug Lab

By Marie

Yesterday we went to the Auckland Zoo. My favourite place was the Bug Lab. The Bug Lab is a new part of the Zoo. People go there to learn about bugs. It’s a big, dark tent filled with lots of exciting games and activities about insects. There was a big, long, dark path to get into the Bug Lab. I felt very scared going in and I didn’t know what was about to happen.

My favourite thing in the Bug Lab was when I went on the insect slide and when we made origami butterflies. I also liked when I put my origami butterfly in the wind tunnel to make it fly. I put my butterfly in the bottom of the wind tube and it fluttered up to the top and came out and back down to the ground.

When it was time to go back to school, I felt disappointed about leaving because I wanted to stay exploring the Zoo and the Bug Lab even longer. It was a very fun day.
