We learn about Okinawa ocean in the school trip
water temp 25 ℃ Air temp 26 ℃ Today, we had a school trip of environmental eduation. Students play at the beach and learn about the coral reefs. They really enjoyed with playing some games and touching real sea animals on the day.
Go to the beach and touch animals lead students to new discovery!!
Also we were surprised that they ask so many questions that we didn’t realized normally, and find many animals by themselves.
Many students were excited and said “it’s so fun to play at the sea! so many funny animals here!” with big smiles. They understood there are many species of animals under the water. Moreover, they try to think more deeply about those sea animals help our life and nature. We hope students who participated today notice that there is such a beautiful ocean world in Okinawa!
In the afternoon, they created photo frame by imaging ocean as a theme. All photo frames were so unique and everyone had different image of ocean!
Then, we did Nature Game! Try to mimic and gesture marine animals such as fish, coral, starfish, sea cucumber…
Play and think about ocean makes to feel those environments more closer than before. Enjoy in nature, and tell the experience to other people are actually lead to protect both nature and ocean. It is totally not difficult things to encourage and try to protect nature! Important things is the “heart” of concerning and loving nature.
So let’s fell in love with the ocean and corals in Okinawa to save such a beautiful ocean!!!!
