This is how we respire!

In connection with our unit of inquiry "Human body systems" Ms Sunitha, parent of Zara from grade 3A had volunteered to support and help children to understand the process of the Respiratory System through a manipulative that was made using balloons, straws and a plastic bottle. It proved that children can easily connect with the concept through experiential learning than by a mere theory.
The PPT presentation made the session interesting. She concentrated her discussion on what we eat, what we drink and what we make along with the consequences of choices made. In all, it was an informative and interactive session. 
We would like to thank Ms Sunitha for the valuable time she shared with us amidst her busy schedule.

Beyond The Classroom

Field trips motivates children to learn from new experiences.
Environmental awareness also occurs as children see, hear and feel new things.
Off to the BOTANICAL GARDEN...  We (PP2 B) go to learn about plants and how they get what they need from their environment. The bus ride alone was very exciting!! For the kids with caps and  colorful shades. While there, they take a walk and observe and explore the garden and discover different types of roots and leaves   and learnt   how they help the plant grow and survive. The kids  discovered the different types of plants and Trees like Aquatic, Wild, and Flowering Plants. Children picked few dried leaves to show their creations for the Hands on Activity.
