The month of September brought an interesting approach to virtual learning activities as new and exciting concepts were introduced. One such activity was the Virtual Tour of the Zoo in Phoenix, USA. Parents, teachers and the students were delighted when this new method of learning through the virtual tour was introduced. With this latest technology, tiny tots could explore state-of-the-art places from the comfort of their homes.
This virtual tour apart from providing information and facts about different and exotic animals was a fun way to inculcate the passion of learning in our children. In order to make the tour more realistic and interesting, students were asked to dress up as they would on a picnic, keep water bottles, a snack box and a cap with them. This made the experience all the more realistic for the kindergarteners. There were squeals of laughter when they saw Blippi (the host in the video) doing something funny or sometimes the children watched in awe as they saw some of the most exotic and rare animals.
There were birds, reptiles, animals from the cat family, domestic and wild animals and so many more things to see. They learnt about various feeding methods and different ways to take care of these animals. Last but not the least, it was a realization of the fact that we live in a world full of wonders and animals are an important part of it. The Virtual Tour conducted was full of adventure for our kindergarteners. The look of happiness and glee in their eyes is always a delight.
