The April walk was particularly interesting this time around. We did a variety of activities, including determining the diversity of colours in the forest, collaborating on a group art project, and pulling on the inspiration of the forest by doing some poetry and drawing. This was the first walk where we used art, rather than science alone, to stimulate some different styles of learning within the group. We hope that we have sparked curiosity about the forest in a new way.
This month's leader Kassandra Yau took a few photos during the walk:
Stay tuned for more information on the upcoming walk.
Last month we had a very exciting walk where we looked at the park from an "artsy" perspective as opposed to our usual scientific outlook. Unfortunately, many parents were not able to locate the trail and were unable to attend. That is why we have decided to lead another walk with a similar theme.
