  • Distinguished some types of butterflies through their external characteristics.
  • Explain why: the trees fell down but were not removed – when the tree decomposes, the termites will be a food source for some animals like wild boar or add nutrients to the soil.
  • Provided knowledge about the life cycle of animals and plants: are the stages that a living organism goes through throughout its life. All plants and animals go through life cycles. Plant life cycle begins with seeds, then flowers and fruit. While animals begin their life cycle from eggs or offspring, they then grow and mate and continue to lay eggs / offspring.
  • Divided groups to draw the life cycle of Frog, Butterfly.
  • Knowledge of biological interactions: effects and relationships between organisms in the ecological community. In the natural world, no organism exists in absolute isolation and therefore all organisms must interact with the environment and other organisms. An organism’s interaction with its environment is the foundation for the organism’s existence and the function of the entire ecosystem.
  • Students gave examples of some specific species of flora and fauna found in Tam Dao National Park.                            B. Afternoon: Visit Tam Dao Bear Rescue Center
  • Learnt about the types of bears available here: Dog bears, horse bears through characteristics, living habits, daily food
  • Listened to stories of bears hunting and captive for bile and stories of some typical bears.
  • Visited 2 semi-natural captive facilities at the center.
  • Knowledge of biodiversity and current biodiversity situation.
  • Biodiversity: a term that represents the diversity of living organisms, species and populations, the genetic variability between them and all their complex assemblies into biomes and ecosystems.Biodiversity loss in the world is the disappearance of about 45% of species and habitats of species. Therefore, the conservation of biodiversity is very necessary.
  • Conservation of biodiversity starts with protecting the number of individuals and their environment and quality of life. Related to the facts about the bears that the students observed in the rescue center area.                                                                 3.  Feelings of children after the experience session: The children felt very sorry after listening to the actual stories of the bears. Children wanted to spread this story so that more people join hands to protect the bears from the dangers of illegal hunting and confinement for bear bile.
