Natural learning cannot be limited to the classrooms, as there are a lot of the things to learn beyond the classroom walls. Nature is the best teacher, provided that the learner must be at the nearest to the nature. Keeping the objective our priority, Staford School organised a visit to Lucknow Zoo for the students of class V.
A great deal of excitement was visible in the students. From the cages of hyenas, to jackals, rabbits, alligators, deer etc, the students got a chance to observe closely each one of the animals there. On having a glance at the White Tiger and the Lion the students got quite thrilled.
They were also engrossed to see some fascinating birds like Emu, Great Pied Hornbill, Ostrich, Golden, and Silver Pheasant. They also spotted rarely seen animal species like Hoolock Gibbon, Himalayan Black Bear, Barking Deer etc. The vintage train exhibited in the zoo premises caught the attention of the students. The star attraction of the trip was the toy train. The students were entertained to board the toy train that ran through the zoo.
In true sense, this visit to the zoo helped our students to correlate the concepts they had been learning in class with real life experiences gathered at the zoo. This visit got them a chance to be closer to the nature and learn more about the animal kingdom and their habitat. This step is very essential in order to inculcate a sincere love and care in the children for our nature, so that they can be the protector of our mother nature.
