STATE TIMES NEWS JAMMU: Aquariums are great places for children. They teach them so much about the ocean, the world and even how different creatures can be. They also help protect and conserve the species they have. About 280 students of classes II and III along with their Class Teachers Gurjeet Kour, Suman Thapa, Meenakshi Sharma, Sumeet Ranyal, Meenakshi Gupta, Dolly Sharma, Bindu Bakshi and Bindu Kumari of Primary Wing, JK Public School Kunjwani visited the Aquarium at Bagh-e- Bahu, one of the city’s main attractions. It is the only Aquarium of its kind in Jammu & Kashmir which has more than 100 species of fishes from across the globe. The young kids were fascinated to see different kinds of colourful fishes of different shapes and sizes on display there. Children were given information about the aquarium’s special features like glass vision, sea world and an underwater sea walk. The aquarium is comprised of two sections-sea water and tropical fish section. The sea water section has turtles, sea horses, yellow frogs, etc. whereas the tropical section has fishes like angel fish, sword tail fish, red dragon and flower horn fish. Students also witnessed a video through which they got to know how the aquatic life is affected because of the growing water pollution. This was an opportune moment for them to correlate with the topics they learn in the classroom. The purpose of conducting this field trip was to help the children to attain more knowledge about aquatic animals. Educational trips help the children to have hand in learning experience in an informal and fun filled atmosphere.
