Journal Writing Project: Vacations


By Gabrielle Sand

Ever since I was a little kid, I would go on family vacations. They weren’t the big huge ones like going to another state for a week vacations, but the ones where you learned something. They would always be short vacations like a day or two, maybe three. I remember going up to zoos, going to S.D., and Wisconsin Dells. I didn’t just learn from these vacations, I brought back memories that would last forever.

When I was little, I went to the zoo a bunch of times. I don’t remember a lot of it, but it was always fun to go see the animals you usually don’t see. I was used to seeing dogs, cats, cows, sheep, and birds, the typical animals you see around here. That was all I really saw on a daily basis. When we went up to the zoo, we saw exhibits with special animals. There is usually an African exhibit that includes lions, giraffes, rhinos, zebras, and many others. Sometimes they have a portion of just snakes, and sometimes arachnids, or spiders. Almost all the time we saw a monkey of some sort. Going to the zoo was just a huge learning experience for me because I got to see the animals actually move with my own eyes, instead of looking at pictures of them.

My family and I also went to S.D. one summer. We went and visited Mount Rushmore with the four presidents heads carved into the huge rock. The four presidents include Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. All four of those presidents changed the lives of many people. George Washington was the first president of the United States; he took over office in 1789. Also, he was the Commander in Chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War. He, along with Thomas Jefferson, were both founding fathers of our country. Thomas Jefferson was the third president of the United States. He was also the principal author of the Declaration of the Independence. Theodore Roosevelt was the 26th president of the United States. He was an author, historian, and explorer. Abraham Lincoln was the 16th president of the United States. He was the president at the time during the Civil War that was going on. With the end of the war, he had accomplished many things. He had abolished slavery and strengthened the union. Along the way, we also had visited Devils Tower and learned about the legends that went along with the huge rock.

I think bringing kids to small vacations that they can learn something is extremely rewarding, not only .....
