Field trips are a regular part of the curriculum for young children. Field trips are important to help bridge the gap between education and hands-on experience.
On 1st December, 2018, the students of Class III A and III B visited ‘Lucknow Zoo’.The students were very excited to see a variety of animals and learn about their habitats. The greenery around the zoo grabbed their attention. They were very keen to visit the lion confinement area and were happy to see the pride of lion and lioness.
They also saw two species of bear, namely the Himalayan Black Bear and the Sloth Bear. They explored different parts of the zoo and enjoyed monkeys chattering, lion roaring, birds chirping, zebras, deer running behind fences. They saw one of the world’s smartest animal, Chimpanzees. Apart from these animals, they also saw Hippo, Rhino(Indian), Giraffe, Indian Alligator, Lion tale macaque, Many deer species and birds species including beautiful Macaws.
The Toy Train was the major attraction for the little ones. The State Museum and Folk Arts Museum located inside the campus became the rich source of knowledge for the students.
The purpose of the trip was to explore more about animals and help the students to see familiar things in new ways. An underlying message learnt on the excursion was the need to love and nurture the animal kingdom, which is a gift of Mother Nature.
