Learning about Simple Machines was interesting

We went to MOTAT yesterday to learn about simple machines.
At MOTAT we first did some exploring. We were looking at the Steam Engine. After that we went to the pump house. At the pump house it was old stuff. Inside the pump house there were some big wheels.

Then we went to the mirror maze. At the mirror maze it was so noisy because there was another school there. My friends and I kept banging our heads on the mirrors because it was so confusing.   

After the mirror maze,  it was time for our tram ride. When we got to the other side of the Zoo the tram stopped. The driver of the tram Paul O’ Ryan asked us if we had any questions after the ride. Some of us only had few questions. Then we went to the game zone. Mrs Pau’uvale our leader said that its time for our lunch. By now I was very hungry.

When we finished our lunch break, it was time for our class lesson.
During the class lesson Melissa our tour guide, talked to us. She told us about simple machines. She gave us examples of simple machines. She also told us to have a look around for ten minutes. After that we had to build some simple machines. I built a merry go round. It was so much fun.

Then we went outside. There were new exhibits such as military trucks, tanks and machine guns.
