In my opinion the circus is the most educational and entertaining pastime for children. First of all, the circus creates unforgettable impressions in children’s memories. For example, a lot of children still remember some performances from a very young age. Secondly, circus performances are interactiveFor instance, children often take part in the performance when the clowns or the circus ring-master goes through the aisles and talks with people in the audience.

Moreover, children also can see different animals and learn new information about them.

At the same time there are people who think that movies are better. Movie goers say that movies have a lot of special effects and are more entertaining.

In my opinion impressions that children get when they become a part of circus shows are much deeper. In a circus childrencan see firsthand real gymnastic performances which inspires them to learn to do the same things. Then they want to learn to juggle and do impressive tricks on the trapeze bar after going one time to a circus. Things like happen more often than after watching a movie.

In conclusion, I would like to say that going to the circus is an old Russian tradition and I believe families with children should stick to it. Interactivity, which is found more in circus, beats movies as an entertainment criterion. Thus, I support the idea that circus is more entertaining for children.
