Field Trip to Omah Kecebong
On November 10th Grade 1 and Grade 2 visited Omah Kecebong. In line with central idea ‘Lifestyle changes over time’ we went to see traditional way of plowing a rice field, planting rice, traditional way of fishing and transporting people. The place was full of nice fruit trees and other interesting plants.
The bullock cart ride was a fun experience, allowing us to admire nature and enjoy nice countryside views. The next learning opportunity came right after when students took turns riding bulls in the mud to plow the rice field. The trick was to know how to make the bull go the direction you wanted. It was not an easy task, some of us fell right into the mud.
After that we were instructed how to plant rice moving backwards and how to fish in the pond using special nets. The time after a shower and lunch was devoted to learning how to make a straw puppet, and play traditional wood and bamboo games. We were laughing and playing all the time. What a wonderful learning experience!
