This post is a follow-up of the previous one, about the learning journey conducted at Pasir Ris Park by Cicada Tree Eco-place and supported by MOE. And a belated one.
Due to work commitments, I ended up going back just once, on 26 April to conduct one session. It was a small group, I had 8 little kids in my group and they were very adorable.
So I read the story to them, showed them specimens and photos and explained them to the kids, brought them for a short walk on the beach and did some colouring.
The tide was pretty high so there wasn’t much life to see, but we did manage to find a leaf-porter crab in a tide pool!
I hope the kids enjoyed themselves and took back many valuable lessons(: and remember them.
- Anyway, it was a short stint, but a good experience all the same. I really think kids these days need more of such exposure, lest they grow up brandishing insect repellent and spraying every living creature (save humans) that they see, and developing an aversion to Nature. Which would be extremely saddening.
