On 20-21 January 2021, one of the topics studied by students at the Learning Centre is monitoring the preservation of endangered animals and their habitats. The Begawan Foundation Learning Centre, which applies the principle of learning by doing, invites students to learn to actively monitor the Bali Starling birds that have been released in the wild through field trips to rice fields located not far from the Learning Centre.

By walking together, they walked along the rice fields and water sources while observing the presence of rare animals and their habitat.

For students, this field trip activity was very useful and enjoyable. In addition to learning from real things, students do not feel bored because while they were actively looking at the large tree where Bali Starlings live, they also get to see various sources of bird food in their habitat, the refreshing water source nearby, and walk leisurely together with friends on the trail.

Learning monitoring in the wild can increase students’ curiosity. Many questions that arise from students while studying in nature include: Why are there many birds playing around the water fountain? What kind of bird sound is it? Where are the Bali Starlings?

In this field trip, students also found various kinds of animals such as birds, butterflies, and other insects. Most interestingly, the students found dead fish floating in a pond near the rice fields. Students were very curious and took the initiative to learn more about the cause of death.

Like detectives who are enthusiastic about solving cases, the students brought the fish back to the Learning Centre. Students used magnifying glass in active learning to dissect fish and to observe fish conditions, they found the differences in healthy and unhealthy fish conditions, and learn to measure fish lengths with a ruler.

Through this activity, students got direct experience learning about the shape and structure of fish organs.

After the fish has been observed, the students compost the fish, so that they can again nourish the environment.

Wow, the students really enjoyed the Begawan Foundation field trip activity. Thank you to our students who are very excited about learning together and have shown high curiosity.

Pada 20-21 Januari 2021, salah satu topik yang dipelajari oleh siswa di Pusat Pembelajaran adalah memantau pelestarian hewan langka dan habitatnya. Pusat Pembelajaran Yayasan Begawan yang menerapkan prinsip pembelajaran “learning by doing” mengajak siswa belajar aktif memonitor burung Jalak Bali yang sudah dilepasliarkan di alam bebas melalui kegiatan field trip ke area persawahan yang berlokasi tidak jauh dari Pusat Pembelajaran.

Dengan berjalan kaki bersama-sama, mereka menyusuri daerah persawahan dan area sumber air sambil mengamati keberadaan hewan-hewan langka dan keadaan habitatnya.

Bagi para siswa kegiatan field trip ini sangat bermanfaat dan menyenangkan. Selain bisa belajar dari hal-hal yang nyata, siswa merasa tidak bosan karena sambil aktif melihat pohon yang besar tempat tinggal burung Jalak Bali, melihat berbagai sumber makanan burung di habitatnya, melihat air di pancuran yang sangat menyegarkan, dan berjalan santai bersama teman-teman di jalan setapak.

Belajar monitoring di alam bebas dapat meningkatkan rasa ingin tahu siswa. Banyak pertanyaan-pertanyaan yang muncul dari siswa saat belajar di alam diantaranya: Mengapa banyak burung bermain di sekitar pancuran air? Suara burung jenis apakah itu? Di mana burung Jalak Bali berada?

Di field trip ini, siswa juga menemukan berbagai macam hewan seperti burung, kupu-kupu, dan berbagai macam serangga lainnya. Yang paling menarik, siswa menemukan ikan mati yang mengapung di kolam dekat sawah. Siswa sangat penasaran dan berinisiatif ingin mengetahui penyebab kematian dari ikan tersebut.

Bagaikan detektif yang antusias memecahkan kasus, siswa membawa ikan tersebut ke Pusat Pembelajaran untuk dilakukan pembedahan. Siswa menggunakan kaca pembesar dalam belajar aktif membedah ikan untuk mengamati kondisi ikan, menemukan perbedaan kondisi ikan yang sehat dan tidak sehat, dan belajar mengukur panjang ikan dengan penggaris.

Melalui kegiatan ini, siswa mendapatkan pengalaman langsung belajar tentang bentuk dan struktur organ pada ikan.

Setelah ikan selesai diamati, siswa menjadikan ikan tersebut kompos agar kembali dapat menutrisi lingkungan.

Wah! Sangat seru ya kegiatan siswa jalan-jalan bersama Yayasan Begawan. Terima kasih siswa yang sudah sangat bersemangat belajar bersama dan memiliki rasa ingin tahu yang tinggi.
