Field Trip in the fifth grade.


We, the students of class V, had gone to the Santhome Marine Aquarium as a field trip, which is situated in the Southern part of Chennai. My class teacher, Kalyani ma’am had given some tips before leaving. She also appointed me to take care of my class girls.

We boarded the van around 9: 25 am. When we reached there, we were asked to take a look at a display chart, which gave us an idea about the fascinating creatures inside the aquarium. A lady was appointed to explain about the specialty of each of the fishes in the aquarium.

Fascinating sea creatures (listed on the chart)

Wimble fish
Blue ring Angelfish
