Fifth grade visit American Writers Museum

By Joe G., fifth grade

      The fifth grade was given the chance to go on a short but interesting field trip to the American Writers Museum of Chicago. There was so much to do and learn. 

      The museum was very new compared to Chicago’s other museums. The building was built  into a circle. The designers did this because if anybody ever got lost it would be easier to find them.

We had options and things to explore such as, typewriters we could practice on and the gift shop with many things to choose from. The typewriters might have been the coolest part of the the trip. They had been used and made in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. The gift shop had books from famous American authors such as Edgar Allan Poe and Ernest Hemingway and JD Salinger. This museum had so much more things I could go on and on about.

      At the end of this trip, our grade had learned something, don’t judge a book by its cover. This museum seemed like it would be boring because of how small it was, but we were wrong. It was a very interesting. I liked this field trip because it gave us fifth-almost-sixth graders an idea of what we should be taking part in, writing.

      This is a great place people should go to where they can learn and experience something new. The American Writers Museum of Chicago was amazing. One of the best museums out there.
