‘Growing in Bali’ is the second of the nine themes in our curriculum. We began this theme on 2 March 2020. Within this program, observing plants, especially wild plants, has played an important part.

Eco-Warriors were invited to recognise and identify plants directly in their natural habitat, increasing their knowledge of their surrounding environment.

To get hands-on experience in their natural habitat, the Learning Centre invited Eco-Warriors to study at the Gianyar Botanical Garden. This place is a local forest located about 30 minutes from our centre. Parents of the Eco-Warriors escorted their children individually for safety due to the pandemic.

The Eco-Warriors began their learning with an introspective activity. They imagined the stories and hopes of the plants and trees there. They also collected leaves, fruit, twigs, and roots, as well as mushrooms, from the forest. They listened to the stories of the local villagers, who were also conservation workers there. The Eco-Warriors were very enthusiastic about listening to local residents telling stories about various types of plants in the forest located in Kerta Village. To prepare presentations on the results of their lessons in the forest, they took photos using their tablets to be able to find more information for presentation materials when they returned to the Learning Centre.

During their presentations, the Eco-Warriors demonstrated their confidence in what they had discovered. They exchanged information about the origin of plants, as well as the benefits and functions of plants that interested them. They also tried their best to find the scientific names of the trees they came across.

The enthusiasm and information they conveyed in the presentation showed that “Learning by Doing” has a real impact on students to be more environmentally-aware.

‘Tumbuh di Bali’ adalah tema yang kedua dari sembilan tema dalam kurikulum kami. Tema ini kami mulai pada 2 Maret 2020. Dalam program ini, pengamatan terhadap tumbuhan, khususnya tumbuhan liar, telah berperan penting.

Para Pejuang Lingkungan diajak untuk mengenali dan mengidentifikasi tumbuhan secara langsung di habitat aslinya, menambah pengetahuan mereka tentang lingkungan sekitarnya.

Untuk mendapatkan pengalaman langsung di habitat aslinya, Learning Center mengundang para Pejuang Lingkungan untuk belajar di Kebun Raya Gianyar. Tempat ini adalah hutan lokal yang terletak sekitar 30 menit dari pusat kami. Orang tua dari Pejuang Lingkungan mengantar anak-anak mereka satu per satu demi keselamatan, karena pandemi.

Para Pejuang Lingkungan memulai pembelajarannya dengan kegiatan introspektif. Mereka membayangkan cerita dan harapan tanaman dan pepohonan di sana. Mereka juga mengumpulkan daun, buah, ranting, dan akar, serta jamur, dari hutan. Mereka mendengarkan cerita penduduk desa setempat yang juga berperan sebagai pekerja konservasi di sana. Para Pejuang Lingkungan sangat antusias mendengarkan cerita warga sekitar tentang berbagai jenis tanaman di hutan yang terletak di Desa Kerta. Untuk mempersiapkan presentasi hasil belajar mereka di hutan, mereka mengambil foto menggunakan tablet mereka agar dapat mengetahui lebih banyak informasi untuk bahan presentasi saat kembali ke Pusat Pembelajaran.

Selama presentasi mereka, para Pejuang Lingkungan menunjukkan keyakinan mereka pada apa yang telah dipelajari. Mereka bertukar informasi tentang asal usul tumbuhan, serta manfaat dan fungsi tumbuhan yang menurut mereka menarik. Mereka juga berusaha semaksimal mungkin untuk menemukan nama ilmiah dari pohon atau tanaman tersebut.

Antusiasme dan informasi yang mereka sampaikan dalam presentasi menunjukkan bahwa metode pembelajaran “Learning by Doing” berdampak nyata bagi siswa untuk lebih sadar lingkungan.
