Activity 17 Solution
Suppose you have visited the zoo with your parents. Write a letter to your friend telling him/ her about your experience in the zoo. You can use the following hints:
Wild animals and birds you saw – their habits – your feelings – should they be kept in a zoo or in a reserve forest
22/1 lake road
I hope this letter finds you well. I wanted to share an exciting experience I had recently when I visited the zoo with my parents. It was truly a memorable day!
At the zoo, I got to see a wide variety of wild animals and birds. From majestic lions and playful monkeys to colorful parrots and graceful peacocks, the diversity of creatures amazed me. Observing their habits up close was fascinating. I saw the lions lounging in the shade, the monkeys swinging from branch to branch, and the birds showing off their beautiful feathers.
My feelings during the visit were a mix of awe and concern. While it’s incredible to see these creatures in person, I couldn’t help but wonder if they should be kept in a zoo or if they’d be better off in a natural habitat like a reserve forest. It’s true that zoos provide a safe environment for animals, but seeing them confined made me realize how important it is for them to have space to roam freely.
Overall, the zoo visit was an eye-opening experience that left me with many thoughts to ponder. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this too.
Take care and write back soon!
your loving friend
