In line with our unit of inquiry “Sharing the Planet”, EY2 students had an excursion to Ecopark Taman Impian Jaya Ancol to learn about how plants sustain life on Earth and play a role in our lives. They left for Ecopark on Monday, 18 March 2019 at 07.00 a.m. by bus and arrived at Ecopark at around 08.30 a.m. They had a tour around the place and saw different plants such as: dragon fruit trees, longan trees, frangipani flowers, padi, spinach, lettuce, aloe vera, cactus, pumpkin trees and so on. EY 2 students also explored the plants life cycle and how they are important to life on Earth.
In Ecopark Ancol the students did a fun clay molding activity as an ice break. After they finished with the clay activity, the tour leaders led the farm tour and explained about how the animals and people on Earth need the plants and why it is important to care for the plants. They gave the students a new learning experince of transplanting the plants in a polybag. All the students participated in all activities during the tour enthusiastically.
