Joke of the Week: What do you call a fish without an eye? *Answer below the pictures
By Brayden Brown On Wednesday, February 13th, the Roving Learners went to a small event hosted by Texas State Aquarium. The event was at the Texas State Capitol. We met a baby alligator, a tortoise, a starfish and some seahorses.
When we got there, we hung out around the Capitol. John wanted me and Phoenix to ask where the animals were. We went over and asked someone associated with the aquarium. The guy said that the animals were coming. We went back to tell John that. He told us to go back and ask when the animals would be arriving. We went back over to figure it out. The dude said that the animals would be arriving in thirty to forty minutes.
John said that he would buy us lunch because we were very good for Lulu the day before. Lulu is the Littles literacy teacher. John had ordered us lunch at the Capitol. He ordered it from Mi Madres.
When we were done eating lunch, we went over to the event. When we got to the event we scattered. The first thing I saw was the starfish and seahorses. Next I went to see a tortoise. The tortoise is pretty big with a faint pattern on its carapace shell. When I was done with the tortoise I went and saw Sarah the baby alligator. I think her name is Sarah because she looks like a Sarah. She has, I think, four other siblings at the aquarium; so, it's hard to tell. I went back to the starfish and seahorse. While I was there I saw that one of the seahorses was pregnant. What I like about seahorses is what makes them extraordinary from other animals. It is that the males give birth instead of the females. I think that is cool because no other animal in the world does that. That is why it’s so extraordinary. I also like them because they can change color to camouflage. That is cool because not many animals do that. I think tortoises are cool because they have a cool carapace shell with a pattern on it. I also think tortoises are cool because unlike the turtle they don’t live in water. But like a turtle the tortoise is a reptile. I think the patterns on their shell are like zebra stripes, every shell pattern is different. I think that's how they can tell each other apart.
When I was at the seahorses a second time a news reporter came up to me and asked me my name age and school. I pointed to John with his Roving Learners shirt on and told him that is are teacher then he went away. John asked me if I had told him the schools name. I said no but that I had pointed to him.
The Roving Learners left. We walked across some streets, passed some buses and finally got to the van. We loaded up and left.
The Roving Learners went to the Capitol to see the event hosted by Texas State Aquarium. We got lunch at Mi Madres, and learned about tortoises and american alligators. All in all the day went pretty well. I was really happy about how the day went and I’m sure John was too.
