  21. 21. Group Reflection 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
  22. 22. 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.
