Students of Ekya ITPL, Grades 3 and 4 got an opportunity to go on a field trip to the Bannerghatta Zoo and butterfly park. Children were really excited to go with their friends to a place amidst nature & wilderness. The trails within National Park gave an opportunity for students to explore the beauty of nature. Children saw many animals in the park-like snakes, crocodiles, tiger, zebra, giraffe, etc. Students engaged in a hands-on learning experience in a playful way.
They understood that science is fun. The purpose of the trip is to provoke a sense of curiosity and inquiry, use observation, curiosity and communication skills.
Students experience observing and discovering the diversity of life that exists at Bannerghatta Zoo. It enabled them to explore their ideas about wild animals and built on these ideas both before and after a zoo field trip. After reaching back to school, they promptly recorded their reflections.
