5 Fun School Break Activities

Merdeka and Raya Haji go beyond their glorious intentions, to meanings deeper than mere holidays. Unfortunately,  bucket loads of homework and projects tend to hinder our freedom to enjoy these celebrations. Hence, making the notion, “back to school” seem less exciting. But hey, who said you can’t enjoy the break without ditching education itself?

1. Dinosaurs Alive

Ever dreamt of living during the times when T-rexes prowled the lands and Pterodactyls ruled the skies? Maybe that was too dramatic, but if you adore Jurassic Park, then you should definitely pay this exhibition a visit! There are plenty of fossils and dinosaurs to go around. It may probabaly help you in science projects when the new semester begins.

Family bonding is never limited to movie sessions and jungle trekking. Heck, some of us only do those things with friends. Say, perhaps convincing them to visit our endangered elephants. You may learn a thing or two about how nature and conservation share a specific connection in a parent-child relationship. And hopefully, it’ll boost your geography and strategic planning grades as well!

Venue National Elephant Conservation Centre (NECC), Kuala Gandah, Pahang
Ticket Price RM5 – RM10
Operation Hours Daily, 10 am – 4:30 pm
