Just like how our tour programmes are designed to cater to different age groups, learning neither only happen in schools nor stop when you graduate from it! Learning happens everywhere and is a life long process!
Very well then, can anyone guess what is Fracts? (Hint: A combination of what we do here in the farm and a source of learning)
The answer: Frog + Facts = Fracts (Please highlight on the blank space to reveal the answer)
Congratulations if you have guessed it right! Fun isn’t it?
Here in Jurong Frog Farm, we believe that education in a farm setting plays a crucial role in society. Education, apart from other things, makes up society. From reference to this article, one of the reasons why we behave and decide the way we do is due to ‘framing and anchoring’. In other words, every decision depends on information. For example, frogs are amphibians and without water in their natural habitat, they will die. It is this kind of information that tells us that we must conserve mother nature (by having the habit of 3 Rs) as much as we can so that we do not destroy the natural habitat of frogs and other animals.
Hence, by sharing knowledge about the wonderful history and life of frogs, as well as its threats, we can play a part to make informed decisions before behaving in a certain way, especially towards our dear friend, the Frogs.
(CROAK CROACK!) – “that’s right!” in frog language.
Basically, Fracts (a singular noun) is a weekly episode of frog facts combined with occasional humour and thought provoking articles that will make you muse and ponder.
So, stay tuned for Fracts #1!
