As a starting point to our Project “Under the Sea”, the “Whales” and “Dolphins” visited the “Museo Argentino de Ciencias Naturales Bernardino Rivadavia”
We went by bus to Parque Centenario. Once there, we were welcomed by two guides who were very friendly and started the tour.
First, they showed us an aquarium with river fish and the children were fascinated learning about the characteristics of a fish and how they camouflaged into the background.
They also were able to see tropical fish (sea fish) which were very bright and colourful.
The guides taught them many facts about whales and dolphins which are mammals, not fish.
It was a very interesting outing which the children, teachers and mothers thoroughly enjoyed!
Experiential Learning is extremely important for young learners. The children construct their understanding of the world around them, though physical and social experiencies. Their minds and their senses are engaged, as well as their emotions, thus making learning fun and awaking their interests and curiosity to find out more.
We´d like to thank the mothers who accompanied our pupils on this visit that was very successful from all points of view.
