JIMBARAN - SD Widiatmika held learning outside the classroom through outing class activities. The activity carried out on Friday, September 23, 2022, was held in three different places in the Kintamani area, Bangli, namely the Strawberry Garden, Batur Geopark Museum, and Ayodya Oemah Strawberry.
The principal of SD Widiatmika, I Putu Edi Purwanta, said that this out-of-class learning activity is routinely held every year at the end of the odd semester. The participants involved were 290 grade IV, V, and VI students accompanied by teachers and school committees.
"The three places provide hands-on learning experiences for children. They not only learn in class but can also see phenomena in the themes discussed in every lesson at school," said Edi.
At the Batur Geopark Museum, students learn about volcanoes, especially Batur, volcanic rocks, to types of soil.
"Students can directly ask the experts at the museum, and it is contextual with real life," he said.
While at the strawberry garden, students were introduced to the strawberry cultivation process, from the process of preparing seeds, planting, maintaining, harvesting, and processing to packaging.
"They know that the strawberries are not only sold in fruit form but can be processed into juice, dried preparations, and jam. They can observe it directly," said Edi.
Meanwhile, at Ayodya Oemah Strawberry, the students showed their creativity through performances and games.
"Students can display their skills. Some sing, dance, and some play games," he said.
