People's Daily Comments: Chinese schoolboy becomes expert on breeding snails

(People's Daily Online)    08:37, October 11, 2017

To breed snails well, you need to spray water to the container every morning and evening, change soil every two weeks, and feed them with bok-choy and sweet fruits—this is what Sun Youxiang, a fourth-grade primary school student in Hangzhou, capital city of east China’s Zhejiang province, concluded after breeding snails for one year. From three white jade snails at the very beginning to more than 60 snails of four generations now, he has done a great job in his assignment for his Science class.

Witnessing the reproduction of animals is a precious experience for kids. Their creativity, patience, and respect for life will be stimulated as they learn to take care of animals on their own. Sun’s teacher said the assignment served as a good example of life education. Practice is an essential step in learning, which will benefit the kids for a life time.

Life education allows kids to know how to live with nature and creatures in a friendly way. Starting from this year, Science will become an equally important subject as Chinese and Math in primary schools, which aims to improve students’ knowledge about the surroundings. Drawn by curiosity, more kids will be willing to observe and think through practicing, which will add to our recognition of the world in the long run.
