Sample Answer:
When I was in class six, the school authority arranged an educational tour to the city botanical garden. I was very much interested to participate in it and after I got my parent’s permission, I enrolled in the trip. It was a trip to the largest botanical garden called (…say a name…) and we were almost 30 students and 5-6 teachers in the trip.

After we reached the garden I was very much enthralled to watch such a beautiful place that seemed very green and different from the place we lived. The journey took 3-4 hours and I enjoyed my visit a lot. The place very large and there were several thousands of trees, some hills, lakes etc. the large trees gave us the impression of the woods and I felt like we came to visit a large woods of a mediaeval age. The teachers introduced us with several plants and flowers and there were many plants and flowers that I read or heard about but have never seen before that day.

We learned about the importance of forests, the necessity and our responsibility to make the world a better place for all the species and not just for humans only. We learned some medical and herbal aspects of many trees and one of the teachers explained how the plants and their ingredients are still used to make life-saving medicines. The whole trip was educational and enjoyable as well.

This was a very important trip for me as I had the scope to visit such a beautiful place surrounded by green trees and flowers. I learned many things about the plants and their usefulness. I also learned about the natural equilibrium and why should we maintain a greener environment for our own betterment.
