Learning Through Field Trips

Learning Through Field Trips

In line with our current unit of inquiry, Grade 4-5 community went on a field trip to a nearby mosque and Buddhist temple on Monday, 11th September 2017. Through this field trip, we developed a stronger awareness of different belief systems, practices and identity within our local community.

“We felt that the trip was pretty interesting. I also saw their old holy books called ‘Quran’ and prayer mats in the mosque. I discovered from two Muslim religious leaders (also known as ‘Imam’) that Muslim believers are called to pray five times a day and they will hear a prayer song called ‘azan’. After listening to them, I felt that their God is pretty amazing.”

“The trip was really fun. We learned about how different believers pray to their God. They offer food to God and monks. They also believe in chanting and meditation to get away from the evil spirits. I am thankful to be part of the field trip with my teachers and now I learn how to be more respectful.”
