They learned about the living environment and lives spans of the pets.

The children had the opportunity to touch the pets.

They learned to make rabbit toys which would be donated to HRSS, The House Rabbit Society of Singapore.

The staff, parent and the children had a fruitful experience. It was an informative session and what’s more the children had the first hand experience to feel the pets.

The children participated the follow up activity after the learning journey. They were encouraged to share the knowledge with people around them. The shared knowledge was written on the bookmark. The participants would then acknowledged on the bookmark. 4) AVA Show and Tell session

Date: 8/8/2017

The rabbit toys made by the children during the AVA visit were delivered to the volunteer from HRSS. She kept four rabbits in her residential house at Commonwealth Close.It was a meaningful and enriching experience for the children.

From the project the children learn the importance of recycling used items in order to reduce waste to protect our earth. They have better understanding of the pets and thus are more conscious of their responsibility to the animals. The experience raised their self esteem when they go round sharing with others what they had learned from the staff of the AVA.
