KG – National Bal Bhavan
Education, away from the classroom environment is both productive and invigorating. This was seen clearly, when the students of class KG of Modern Early Years, Vasundhara went to visit the National Bal Bhavan, on the 25th October, 2018 along with their School Teachers and parent volunteers.
The objective of the visit was to provide a first-hand experience for students to learn and explore on their own.
They enjoyed the Mini Zoo and Aviary and got an insight about the birds – their habits and adaptations – beaks and claws.
At the Aquarium students were left awestruck at the vast collection of fish. Children were all smiles as they watched the tiny fish swimming in their glass cases.
After that, they were taken to the National Children’s Museum where they were delighted to see toys and dolls from different countries, traditional jewellery, utensils, musical instruments and turbans from different states of India.
The mirror section was a big attraction for children. The mirrors were arranged in a manner to reflect funny and distorted images. Children found them very amusing and funny.
The next stop was the popular Mini Train ride. The little ones screamed and clapped in excitement at the sight of the train. Hopping on to the vehicle, they took a joyride round the place. The train also passed by one of the star attractions of National Bal Bhavan, ‘The Culture & Crafts Village’. Children saw models of small huts, swings, a well and women standing to draw water, a cow with her young one, a bull and a farmer – recreating a perfect classic village setting.
The day after children will be doing a fun filled worksheet, where they will be making an aquarium of their own and doing a tearing and pasting activity in the visual of a train.
