Malaysian Nature Society Launches Online Environmental Classroom
Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) as the oldest environmental conservation and education NGO in the country, launches its very first online nature classes called the ‘Natural Classroom’ for children of age 7-12, today.
MNS is celebrating its 80th Anniversary this year and continues to promote to the public the understanding of Nature and the natural environment in the comfort of the home of the participants. Children will start to learn how to observe and study about plants and animals in their own backyard or garden.
The series are designed not only in line with the organisational jubilee tagline of ‘In Harmony with Nature’, but it is also aligned with the national curriculum (KSSR).
For four weeks, every Wednesday, from 4-5pm, the MNS educators will launch a live webinar classroom, where they will help students understand topics such as animal science, plant science, rainforest discovery and entomology (the study of insects).
Through the Animal Science webinar, the students will learn about the animal kingdom, the food-chain system and its role in the ecological balance of the earth.
During the lessons of Plant Science, participants will learn about the parts of plants, their basic needs to survive, how plants make food through the process of photosynthesis as well as their life cycles.
In the third lesson, known as “Rainforest Discovery”, MNS educators will invite the audience to engage in a virtual journey to discover the country’s rich Natural Heritage.
Children will also have the opportunity to identify accurately the animals and plants that inhabit each layer of our Malaysian rainforests without having to camp there.
MNS is also encouraging a parent of the participating child to attend the classes together as a complimentary adult observer.
Parents will find the class ‘value for money’ as the RM89.00 nett will cover a total amount of 240-minutes of live lectures (through four webinar series), and the classes will be extended beyond – through another 7 days of facilitated activities via Google Classroom e-learning platform.
There, the kids will be able to recap the lectures via presentation notes, quizzes, tasks and discussion with MNS professional environmental educators.
The tasks will also empower the children to self-discover and investigate their own home and to get to know their ‘neighbours’ (neighbouring animals and plants), in addition to sharpening their curiosity and communication skills.
