Jackson's Voice Lessons
By Joyce Furstenau
  

1     Jackson James wandered about the museum with his classmates. "This old stuff is boring," he told Wyatt. "I'd like to see something really neat."
 
2     "I think it's fun. Some of these things are really old. Can you imagine traveling in a wagon that looks like that?" said Wyatt as he pointed to a Conestoga wagon.
 
3     Wyatt continued looking at the displays and when he got to the end of the buggies, he noticed Jackson was not there. "That Jackson," he said to himself, "he's going to be in trouble before this trip is over, I'm sure."
 
4     Jackson had indeed wandered off to a different part of the museum. He pulled on one door and then another trying to find something "really neat." He was certain he would impress everyone if he could find something no one else had seen. He was so intent on finding something "neat" that Jackson didn't bother to read the signs on the doors he was trying to open.
 
5     Finally, Jackson managed to locate a door that was unlocked. He pushed it open and looked inside. He didn't bother to read the sign posted on this door either. It read: "Archives Chamber: This chamber will automatically lock and lights will shut off once the exit alarm has been activated."
