The words
A group of penguins became a [tour / sour] group for the day when they visited [an / a] art museum. The penguins were from the Kansas City Zoo in the USA. The zoo teamed [down / up] with the [nearby / nearly] Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Bosses of both the zoo and the art museum decided the penguins needed a change of [ocean / scenery] . The penguins were getting lonely because the zoo is closed [because / due] to the coronavirus pandemic. They are used to seeing many visitors [every / over] day. A zoo official said: "Quarantine has caused everyone to go a little [spoon / stir] crazy, even the residents of the Kansas City Zoo. So several of the penguins decided to [going / go] on a field trip to the Nelson-Atkins, which is still closed, to get a [little / few] culture."

The zoo's executive director, Randy Wisthoff, said the penguins have [mist / missed] their regular interactions with zoo visitors. He said: "We're always looking for [weighs / ways] to enrich their lives and stimulate [there / their] days. During this shutdown [period / session] , our animals really miss visitors coming up to see them." The museum director [joking / joked] that the penguins liked the art of Italian artists. He said: "They seemed to [react / repeat] much better to Caravaggio than to Monet." He added: "We are [such / so] happy today to welcome our colleagues from the zoo and they've brought [special / specially] friends and we're seeing how they react [of / to] art." The penguins that visited the museum were Humboldt penguins, which are [native / festive] to Peru and Chile.
