Through inquiry learning approach, students will experience the processes of inquiry, investigation, discussion, summarization and creation, to learn the species of nature.
During the course, students will separate in groups with a mission. Every group will have a treasure box, which contains a common species of plant. Students need to inquiry themselves to find out the information of the plant. Finally, they will collect the plant samples and create an Eco-product with the samples by themselves for the presentation.

Activities:
.Explore a plant sample in groups
.Investigate and collect samples in the nature environment
.Research and record
.Use reused materials to create a handicraft
