I chose elevator because when I went to Children's Hospital I went on an elevator. The elevator went up and I saw lots of people. When I got on again, the elevator went down. I got to the bottom and I went home. I like elevators because they are fun.

The elevator is important for people to go up and down to get to places they want to go. They can go different places on different floors with an elevator. They are really important to people who are in wheelchairs. If you were in a wheelchair, you couldn't take the stairs. You have to use the elevator because if you used the stairs you would fall down them and die.
