Hook/Introduction: Paragraph 1 (to hook your reader in then to give them enough information so they know what you are writing about)
a step back in time, exciting, curious,
The year fours and our teachers, went to see Motat on Monday. We got there on a old bus. It was exciting because I wanted to go, to the challenge zone.

Paragraph 2: Instruction time
introduced, waited patiently, listened attentively, Katherine our educator, schedule, explicit instructions
We have to wait patiently, so we can do exciting things. Katherine our educator, gave us explicit instructions about the exciting thing that we had to do.

Paragraph 3: (Rearrange these paragraphs to suit what your group did - Remember you don’t need to talk about everything just the highlights for each)
Inventions lesson;
interesting kiwi inventions - ingenious flytrap, toothpaste scooper, bungy (AJ Hackett)
a comparison of modern and old technologies - writing tools - typewriter, quill, cameras, lights
My group first learn about comparison of modern and old technologies. We look at the different for new and old.

Paragraph 4: Quiz Trail (choose 1-2 of the things you liked best and write a paragraph about each)
a chance to explore,
a) the village, outhouse/schoolhouse/cottages/jail - with stocks
b) communications - an assortment of telephones, switchboard operator
c) pump station - massive wheel
d) tram ride - gentle rocking, clickety clack, remain seated
e) whisper dome - sound ricocheted off the dome,/cone
f) Game Zone - pulleys and levers, wheels and cogs
At motat, class one went to the motat village outside. Then we went to the pump station. And we went on the tram ride but it was boring because all of the talking.

Paragraph 5: Exploring the Inside Exhibitions (choose 1-2 of the things you liked best and write a paragraph about each)

a) mirror maze - deceptive, an illusion, collided with,
b) earthquake cafe - shuddering, rumbling, violent shaking
c) static electricity dome - purple lightning

The fun part was the mirror maze because it was hard to find the right way. And my very fun part is the earthquake cafe because it keep shaking and rumbling.
