This is the first time I have ever felt the nature with my full
heart. And that the zoo learning journey is meaningful. We
were later assigned to do this project after the visit which led
me to learn ways to clarify doubts in order to finish and do
well in this PowerPoint. – Chan Fei
I felt that it is meaningful. I can learn things with first-hand
experience. I smell the pungent smell of animal and know how
the animal looks like. Learning these will be more effective
than books and internet. – Chi Loon
Personally, I felt that the learning journey was rather
beneficial for our learning experience as each of us got to
experience how to handle different jobs assigned to us.
Also we get to see different aspects in different things.
During the zoo trip I had fun and we had wonderful
moments with the animals there. -Wai Qun
I have learnt the characteristics of the White Faced
Saki Monkey and how different they are from other
monkeys. – Sheila
