Grade 2's Field Trip to Huay Tung Tao

This week Grade 2 went on their first field trip to Huay Tung Tao on Tuesday, April 26th. The Grade 2 students were so excited to continue their learning about geological features and practice their map-making skills.

Students were able to identify many diverse geological features during our trip to Huay Tung Tao. For example, students identified lakes, mountains, rivers, valleys, caves, cliffs, and plains in their observations of the area. Their final task of the day was to create a topographical map of the locations which included directions (North, South, East, and West), a title, labels, and a key which described the symbols used on their map. 

A special new learning experience occurred when we brought out the compasses for students to explore. We practised using the compass and naming directions through a series of games with their peers. Grade 2’s had so much fun learning the magic of a compass, and how such a small device can be so useful for survival in nature.

It was an incredible experience to see the students’ resilience and commitment to their learning despite the heat, and a long day in the sun. Students were so principled with their time during our first field trip away from Prem, and truly demonstrated their scholarly commitment to learning as they remained focused on their projects throughout the day.
