  Welcome to the Fun Farm! We really enjoyed our field trip this year! For some of us, it was our first time to join a field trip. The Fun Farm is a natural playground wherein the children were given the chance to explore open spaces that have access to different types of plants, animals, and the natural world.

All of us were excited enroute to the Fun Farm. We sang songs along the way. We also got the chance to observe the different buildings and vehicles we passed by.

Our first stop was the animal-feeding station. We got to feed animals such as goats, sheep, guinea pigs, and rabbits. We got a little scared in the beginning because as soon as the animals saw the carrots we had, they immediately ran towards us in a big group!

Some of us were also able to catch fishes! We wanted to take it home with us to have it for dinner, but they were too small so we put them back in the water.

We also got to meet a very friendly animal named Choc-nut. He is a Carabao. Our teacher told us that Carabaos are considered as the national animal of the Philippines because they are good helpers in the farm.

Horse-back riding was so much fun! Some of us were even brave enough to ride the big horse!

Getting to the top of this net was such a big achievement! Our teachers were so terrified, but we were brave enough to reach the top and go back down. We did it over and over and over again!

The Fun Farm was filled with different types of obstacles and play areas made out of natural objects. Some were even made out of recycled materials, materials that people usually throw away but has been put to good and recreational use. The play areas tested our stamina, endurance, balance, and bravery, among many other things.

Exploring the different areas of the Fun Farm also helped us practice team work. We had lots of fun games and activities that required having to work either as a  team or with a partner. Teamwork is important in all types of communities.

It was an exciting time to learn different things beyond the four walls of the classroom.
