An Unforgettable Experience
Last weekend, I went to the zoo where my mom works to care for monkeys, which is a career I long for taking up. It is required that we should experience a job to know about the differences between society and schools.
Besides, we will set goals and be active learners to achieve our dreams.
Following my mom, I reached the zoo at 8 o’ clock a.m. My mom gave me some instructions on how to behave before monkeys. Observing and recording their daily activities is what I should do. It is interesting to see that most of the time, monkeys either feed or clean each other as a way to show love. Meanwhile, they like fighting with each other, chasing and competing for food. What’s more, I learned from a specialist about how to attend young monkeys. There are several simple ways to follow for keeping monkey babies clean, healthy and free from sickness. At three o’clock p.m. I finished my job.
From the experience, I know how tired my mom can be after a long day at work. Faced with so many difficulties, I am a little bit puzzled but happy at the same time. It is an experience that I will never forget
