Learning objectives:

This programme aims to facilitate students’ learning in the three areas of knowledge, skills, and attitudes. In terms of knowledge, students will learn about the part of Hong Kong’s history relating to this topic. Through recognising the lifestyle change over time, they will realize people in the past depended very much on natural resources from the surroundings to sustain their daily lives. The field trip enables students to explore how people in the past make use of natural resources in the surroundings to satisfy their daily needs. It also offers an opportunity for students to get in touch with nature and facilitates learning through inquiry-based activities. The field learning enhances students’ motivation and ability of observing and identifying species in nature, develops their generic skills and cultivates positive values, such as self-management skills, communication skills, collaboration skills, and an appreciative attitude towards nature. Furthermore, this module intends to provoke thoughts and reflections on environmental issues, directs students to appreciate the traditional wisdom of the past and be grateful to nature for all the provisions it gives to humans.
