In order to help preschoolers improve their understanding of nature and educate them on environmental protection, last Friday, June 30, 2017, the Western Australia International School System organized the children to visit and have fun at the Saigon Zoo.
This place is a very familiar, a special reserve of plants and animals with a collection of nearly 1,000 species of plants and more than 120 species of rare wildlife. As instructed by the teacher, the children quickly settled down, lined-up in rows along the train to explore the world around with so many natural beauty, and observe the activity of rare animals. Very interesting isn’t it?
The children shouted the names of the animals in the garden; they pointed and made flickering comments about the animals. They were also be accompanied by a guide who will take them to a museum showing animals and plants, introducing the life cycle of butterflies, from pictures, specimens to live images in the wild. The space suddenly became lively, bustling up by the cheering of the little friends when they witnessed the cocoon worm, peeling the pupae and then transforming into a brilliant color butterfly. The children were also provided homework to review names and classifications of animals. Isn’t this a great idea parents?
Through the trip, the young people know how to remain sanitized, protect the natural environment, and always love animals and plants. At the same time; there is more skill in collective action and exposure to the surrounding environment. Let’s take a look at the cute smiles and interesting activities on this trip.
