Learning objectives:

This programme aims to facilitate students’ learning in the three areas of knowledge, skills and attitudes. Students will understand the basic concept of trees, for example, tree parts and its functions such as photosynthesis. In terms of knowledge, students will understand the differences between deciduous and evergreen trees, leaf shapes and tree-dwelling wildlife. Students will be able to identify the shapes of leaves in woodlands. In terms of skills, group activities in the field aim at developing students’ generic skills such as communication skills, creativity and critical thinking skills (3Cs). Furthermore, this package adopts storytelling and a Predict-Observe-Explain (POE) learning model in lessons and a field trip. POE learning guides students to explore findings through observational activities such as identifying tree parts. Then, students will review the difference between predictions and observations. Through the POE learning stages, students' critical thinking skills can be enhanced. In terms of attitude, students will examine the importance/values of trees for the lives of humans. It helps students develop a keen interest in environmental observations and tree conservation.

Relevance to curriculum:

In accordance with General Studies Curriculum Guide for Primary Schools (Primary 1 – Primary 6) (2017)

Type of field activity:

Learning Activities: "Tree Leaves Bingo", "Tree Bark Frottage", "Tree Detective"


In the field study, teachers can ask students to explore the surroundings with their senses. They will identify tree parts and features of plants, understand how weather causes plants to shed leaves, and develop a keen interest in environmental observations. Through hands-on activities such as “Tree Bark Frottage”, students will develop observation skills and sensory awareness.  Meanwhile, the field trip aims to cultivate an appreciative attitude, with which students will show respect for all living things and the environment.
