When one neighbour helps another we strengthen our Community

Little Kabirians were all set to start the day by exploring and enjoying the beauty of nature early in the morning at 7.30 on 4, August 2018 at Parimal garden. This trip was to develop a better understanding about different types of plants as a part of their Environmental Science curriculum and theme based project Neighbourhood and Community Helpers.

The students were excited and curious to know what they would be doing in the garden. Mrs Stella introduced the students to the community helper “The Watchman” of the garden and they were told about his duties. They were headed towards the Asoplava tree and were explained about the parts like the roots, trunk, branches and leaves. Few more trees were shown to them like the Neem , Coconut, Palm and Banyan. They were explained about various shapes of leaves by showing various specimens and the roots of the plants were even shown to them. The explanation was followed by showing an aquatic plant the lotus. They explained about the climber Bougainville and the students were surprised to see how they climb and spread out. The students were able to differentiate between Herbs and Shrub by actually looking at the plants. They were amazed after having a close look at the colourful flowers. Finally before ending the session the children were made to do few yoga exercises to rejuvenate them after the informative trip.

 The next Pitts stop was the Police Station. The Little Kabirians were inquisitive to know what’s going to happen at the Police Station. The students reached the Gujarat University Police Station by 9.00 am. They entered the police station with many questions in their mind.
