Saturday Activities - Secondary:
Class V to VIII
The session on gardening for Home Science was very special as it was a part of the Children’s Day celebration.
The session commenced with a presentation that explained how a baby plant and a human child have similarities. Just like plants have their needs for a healthy growth, similarly children need to be taken care of and looked after.
This was followed by a demonstration of the Kokedama technique of gardening. The video resource for the same was also uploaded on Google classroom for reference.
As a memorabilia for the children’s day this year students were encouraged to use the Kokedama technique of planting to grow a sapling named after themselves and nurture it with love and care to watch it bloom and blossom.
Students enjoyed doing an array of activities where the day started with a lot of zeal and zest doing "Minute to win it" Science games in the Everyday Science class.
Class VI and VII
The students of classes 6 and 7 combined fun with science on Children’s day by participating in a science treasure hunt.
The activity helped the children to think in a scientific way and find objects around them from a scientific point of view.
The children were given a list of clues related to science. The children had to find objects related to the clues within their house and take a picture with it and send it to the teacher.
The students had fun looking for the objects and were able to look at different objects from a scientific point of view.
