Virtual field trip
“The purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows” – Sydney J Harris.
Field trips are informal learning experiences that get students out into the world, exploring the world.
The students of Grade 3 – 10 were taken on a virtual field trip to Dudhwa National Park ?️?️ which is situated in Northern Uttar Pradesh, India ?? on the 12th of November 2021.
The students saw various kinds of animals like the tigers??, elephants??, Sambar deer ??, jackals, civets, jungle cats. They also learned about the various ecosystems in the park. The park has a rich bird life too and its home to many migratory birds like painted stroks, Sarus cranes, kingfishers, weaver birds ???.
Online technologies have removed such barriers from the learning activities and experiences have become an interesting way to engage children and explore new places.
