Persuasive Writing

Argument Writing - Asarina - 18.3.16

Another day of school, wait a minute... we're going to the museum. Leonardo Da vinci Mechanics. Hmm... I don't know a lot about Leonardo Da Vinci. I bet my friend does. I overheard the kids over there. They were chatting about them being the Da Vinci experts. I am tottaly nto. Going to the Waikato Museum was not a waste of time, we learnt new things and saw how it affects us in the modern world.

Going to the museum is a great thing to do, for a class trip or an outing with your family. What ever the choice, it is still never a waste of time. I enjoy museum trips and I think you would too. Above all. You learnt about the past inventions and learnt the meaning to the illusion between mirrors or the reason of a painting. A museum is just a giant classroom.

Most people get hooked into things like illusion between mirrors or the history of paintings by famous artists such as Leonardo Da Vinci. We can learn about the simple machines such as: Pullys, The Screw, Wheels and Axles including a few more things. We learnt about the Lion and the Lillies, how it would walk by using the pullys and other simple machines such as wheels and axles. We could learn about the inventions, the paintings, the past of Hamilton or other cities in the world. Learning about the maori culture and their waka, such as the voyage of the Tainui Waka. These are the past events that were not a waste of  time.

A trip to a museum is a time to learn, a time to explore, a time to meet the past. Da Vinci Mechanics teach us about the mind of Leonardo Da Vinci, his thoughts of flight, the self-supporting bridge, the chains and of course, the robots. That's the whole meaning about the inquisitivity in the mind. Leonardo Da Vinci said "Learning never exhausts the mind," thes are powerful words that help us learn and connect  to the past. Mechanics is sought of the same thing as war. People had a choice to learn about past inventions or not. Learning is not compulsary in life. We have a choice in everything that we do. Leonardo Da Vinci's Mechanics had made a crowd smile at a Duke's party. This is an example of friendship. Leonardo Da Vinci's mechanics have helped us in the modern world. They were the first concepts of flight. Now a days it is a completed design and now has been created. Mrs Strathern told our class that this is a very log bridge because she has walked over that very bridge that Leonardo Da Vinci designed.

A museum is interesting,. You learn. You see the past. You find your ancestors. You find family. Da Vinci Mechanics was not a waste of time at the Waikato Museum, I recommend to go to museums because it is not a waste of time because you could learn and study new things, and these things have affected us in the modern world for the better.
