They expressed their views on the religion through a speech and reciting of “EK ONKAR.” Towards the tail end of the assembly, the children even enjoyed watching a video on the significance of Gurpurab and understood the meaning of the 5 K’s of Sikhism i.e. Kesh, Kara, Kachera, Kirpan and Kanga.
STUDENTS LEARN ABOUT POLAR BEAR & THEIR HABITATS
The climate around us keeps on changing. In order to survive the changing climate, animals are equipped with special features which help them in their adaptation. To understand this special feature of Polar Bear, an activity was organized for G-7. Under this activity, students were asked to explore Polar Bear- their habitat, features, etc. Students then created a poster that they presented to the rest of the class with the information they learned and depicting Polar Bear and its environment. This activity played an important role in understanding, especially in the case of the animals living in extreme climatic conditions who have to protect themselves against extreme heat or cold.
STUDENTS SHARE INTERESTING STORIES ABOUT THEIR NEIGHBOURHOOD
As humans, all of us live in a society that is bound to a neighborhood. It is an essential place that has a great impact on our lives. In TBL, under the Theme ‘Neighbourhood’ students of Grade 2 were engaged in an activity wherein students, after exploring their neighbourhood, had drawn and colored the different places that they know about their neighbourhood. They had also shared their drawings and told their classmates what makes their neighbourhood unique. Students prepared beautiful charts by pasting and drawing different places like temples, churches, police stations, schools, metro stations, etc., in their neighborhood. They also made charts on their favorite vendors and explained how vendors make special sounds about their arrival, what time they open and close their shops in their neighborhood. Every neighbourhood may not have all the similar places, but this activity helped students to get to know that such places also exist.
