The Science Museum Excerpt:

It was a rainy morning on Ahway Island. But Andy, Allie, and Owen didn’t mind the rain one bit. After all, they were getting ready for a trip to the Ahway Island Science Museum! The children loved the museum and had each visited it many times with their families or with their classmates and teachers as a school outing. But this time was different – the three of them were going together as friends, and without any grownups! This was going to be fun and exciting!


Each of them had their own favorite area in the museum. Andy loved seeing the Brachiosaurus and the Tyrannosaurus Rex in the dinosaur exhibit and never got tired of looking at the fossils and bones in the collection. Allie usually wanted to see the airplanes and spaceships. No matter how many times she saw them, she always noticed something new she hadn’t noticed before. Owen’s favorite exhibit was all about the human body. This exhibit included interactive displays that Owen never got bored of exploring.


From all their previous trips to the museum, they knew they would have a better time if they prepared for their visit. So each child wore their most comfortable shoes. The museum was very big and they would have to walk a lot to see everything they wanted to see. They also each packed a backpack with water and snacks.


When the kids arrived at the museum, they entered through the giant main doors into the entrance foyer. As always, the first thing they did was to look around and admire the beautiful, enormous hall. The room had marble floors and was surrounded by pillars. There were beautiful paintings of animals and plants all over the walls and the ceiling. As many times as they had been in this room, they still found it beautiful and exciting.
