I hope you will like my idea for a place to go for a class trip. I would like to go to a great water park called Water World! My main reason is that each of us could find something we like to do there. We are all different in our class. Some of us like to do scary things, and some of us don’t. Water World has things that are scary and some things that aren’t scary at all. Everyone would have a great time, including the adults. My next reason is that Water World is not too far away. When my class went to the zoo last year, it took a long time to get there. That messed up the rest of the day. If we go someplace far away, we’ll waste the whole day. Also, it will be boring to be on the bus for so long. My last reason is that Water World won’t be expensive. It costs much less money if you go in a big group. I know from when my youth group went that you need fifteen kids to get the special price. We only had twelve kids in my youth group, but then three kids from a younger group got to come. That made fifteen. At school we have twentyseven kids in our class, so we will definitely get the cheap price. Our class will really get a great deal! Water World is only about thirty miles from here. I know this because my family and I went there last week, and my dad timed it. We’d get there in no time. We should go to Water World because everyone would have a great time, the ride there would be short, and we would get a bargain. All of this adds up to a wonderful trip for our class. Please choose Water World as the place for our trip!
