Little Urban Explorers @ Queenstown
This year, we are launching our Little Urban Explorers @ Queenstown programme, aimed to enrich what the students learn in the classroom in regards to Urban Neighbourhoods / Town Planning. Come join us as we explore the neighbourhood of Queenstown! Students will get to role-play as urban planners as they step into the history of Singapore’s town planning, the current developments enjoyed by communities and the future in achieving a sustainable green city!
Students will receive the actual land usage maps of the area that are used by URA planners, depicting the trail that they will embark on! As we explore the different places along the trail, they will fill in the map with all they have observed and learnt.
BIODIVERSITY WALKS (*Also available for Primary to Tertiary)
Nothing beats going out into nature and observing marine animals in their habitat! Your students will be able to walk the Intertidal regions in Singapore, and learn about the vast biodiversity that our shores have! They will have a glimpse of what it would be like for a marine ecologist for a day! (This programme is dated according to tidal timings).
Locations of biodiversity walks in Singapore –
- Changi sandy shore (Intertidal walk)
Join us for a hands-on interactive experience with the marine intertidal animals of the Changi sandy shore! Learn about hermit crabs, sea cucumbers, swimmer crabs, sand dollars and many other amazing animals, and how they are adapted to survive the harsh intertidal environment and make the sandy shore their home!
- Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserves (Mangrove walk)
Bring your students to the Mangrove forest of Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserves, where they will get up close to the biodiversity of the animals and plants of the Mangrove ecosystem! Observe and learn about how these Mangrove trees are well adapted in the salty water conditions and play a huge importance in the ecosystem. Students will also get to see animals such as mudskippers, monitor lizards, tree climbing crabs, kingfishers, crocodiles and many more mangrove inhabitants!
- Coney Island (Nature / Intertidal Walk)
Do you know what Singapore is doing in terms of conservation efforts? Do you know we have a park that is self-sustaining through use of solar panels? Join us in learning about the interesting habitat of Coney Island that was recently opened by NParks in 2015! In addition to learning about the endangered flora and fauna that are conserved on this island, students will also be able enjoy Singapore intertidal walk* to learn and interact with the marine biodiversity along the shore!
*dependent on tidal timings
- Punggol Promenade (Intertidal Walk)
The intertidal zone of Punggol Promenade offers a unique habitat of pebbles and rocks, where we encountered the intriguing toadfish, together with other organisms such as snapping shrimps, sea sponge, thunder crab and sea stars. Observe and learn how these animals adapt to interact with and survive in the environment! This location is great to add on our Coastal Clean Up (Values-In-Action activity).
- Ginger Garden – N1 to K2 (Botanic Gardens)
Step out of your classroom today and into the world of plants! Come join us as we learn about parts of plants, their uses and how they fit in the ecosystem! Learn about the colours vibrantly displayed by these flowers, smell their scent lingering in the air and observe the leaves of various shapes and sizes. With a walk behind the waterfall, your students will enjoy learning about these amazing plants! (Ratio 1:20)
- Rainforest Trail – N1 to K2 (Botanic Gardens)
Welcome to the beautiful world of the rainforest habitat! Learn about the wonders of the rainforest, its unique climate and weather that enables it to grow in such vast biodiversity! Come join us as we observe the various layers that makes up the rainforest, learning how each level has its own unique characteristics that allow plants and animals to live together in the rainforest! (Ratio 1:20)
VIA (Values In Action) Activities
Incorporation of VIA activities can be done through Beach Clean-ups (in collabration with ICCS – International Coastal Cleanup Singapore), Weeding / Mangrove Planting (in collabration with NParks Sungei Buloh) and even educational posters to inform others about conservation.
INDOOR PROGRAMMES (AT SCHOOL’S VENUE)
Young Intertidal Explorers’ Skit (with Marine Touch Tank)
This programme is an engaging performance, whereby kids will watch two friends (our facilitators acting) go on a journey to Singapore’s very own Changi Beach! On their journey, they will encounter some of the fascinating marine animals (live animals that we will bring to your school) that can be found on the shore! Apart from learning about these marine animals, your students will have a new found appreciation for the marine ecosystem and how to conserve it through the three R’s!
Marine Touch Tank
Along with the conservation assembly tank, we will be able to bring along live marine animals (e.g. Sea stars, sea cucumber, hermit crabs, marine snails, baby sharks** depending on availability) for some* of students to interact with! This will enable experiential learning for your students as they get an opportunity to touch and feel these animals.
