On October 11 and 12, the Grade 7 students of Shanghai Singapore International School (SSIS) embarked on an island adventure! Together with their teachers, students visited Chongming Island for two days to get to know each other better, to spend time in the forest and to find out some important information about plant cycles and organic foods.

One full day was spent getting to know their peers through team building games in the beautiful Chongming Forest Park. An exciting game of the "Amazing Race" had students running around the forest to get some exercise in the park as they race against the other teams to find as many hidden clues as they could around the park.

On the second day, students visited the Mahota farms to learn about where their food came from. The students took part in planting and farming activities throughout the day. Games on the importance of organic food and how pesticides affect the food chain were played upon returning to school. This excursion was also very closely tied to the science curriculum where students learn about ecology and plant cycles. Overall, it was a trip filled with laughter, fun and great learning experiences as SSIS students discovered the many sides of Chongming Island.
