Field Trip!   

1     The Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village was an interesting place to visit. Thomas' class had spent the day at this spot outside Detroit, Michigan for a field trip, and now his assignment was to write a short paper on what he discovered there.
 
2     As he tried to compose his thoughts, he reflected on the day. He had tried to be attentive to everything, knowing he'd have to write this paper.
