A VISIT TO THE MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY
Last Saturday afternoon, Wei Hua and her classmates were visiting the
Museum of Natural History. They were very interested in dinosaurs.
“Can we see dinosaurs here?”Wei Hua asked Miss Li, their guide.
“Yes, of course. There is an underground Dinosaur World. There you
can see the fossils of many kinds of dinosaurs. Shall we go to visit the dino-
“Yes! Let's go!”All the students cheered. Then they went to the Dino-
“Oh, look! These must be dinosaur eggs. They are so big!”Lucy shouted.
“Yes. These eggs were found in the Gobi Desert by asgroupsof scientists
in the 1920s，”Miss Li said.
发现的。”李小姐说。“So these eggs were laid long long ago by dinosaurs!”Lily said.
Miss Li smiled,“These eggs were laid about 95 million years ago.”
“95 million years ago? That means dinosaurs lived long before human be-
ings appeared! But we can't see any dinosaurs today. That's a pity!”said
“Yes. Dinosaurs lived on the earth for more than 150 million years, and
then disappeared about 65 million years ago. Scientists try to explain their
appearance, but theyve got more questions than answers,”said Miss Li.
“And now there is a very special dinosaur on display. It was discovered
Liaoning Province. I say it is special because the dinosaur was covered with
“With feathers? Like birds?”The students could not believe their ears.
“Look!”Miss Li showed them a picture of the feathered dinosaur,“You
see, it looks like a big bird. Some scientists believe that dinosaurs have
disappeared, but they have become birds.”
“That's very interesting. I want to be a scientist in the future and study
dinosaurs!”said Song Dan.
“Good. Then we can see many dinosaurs discovered by you in this muse-
um,”said Miss Li, and all the students laughed.
