Grade 2 inquirers visited a hidden forest in Bangkok

As part of our inquiry into climate and geography, our Grade 2 students recently explored the PTT Metro Forest in Bangkok, also known as the "Forest in the City" to learn about the positive and negative impacts of human behavior on the environment and gained a deeper understanding of the ways in which our actions can affect the delicate balance of our ecosystem.

The students were curious and had fun exploring, which allowed them to apply their classroom learnings in the real world and vice versa, bringing their real-world experiences back to the classroom.

By exploring this forest, our caring and principled inquirers were able to witness firsthand the impact that climate and geography can have on the way people live, work, and interact with the world around them. They also gained a greater appreciation for the beauty and complexity of the natural world and were inspired to think critically about their own role in preserving and protecting it.

Experiential learning is key to fostering deep understanding and lasting engagement with important concepts like climate and geography.
