Field Trip to Vinoba Bhave Ashram (Gr-2)

Field trips form an integral part of our curriculum. To give a hands on experience related to the the topic ‘More About Plants’ in EVS, Grade 2 students were taken to “Vinoba Bhave Ashram” on 17th September’ 2018.The objective of the activity was to reinforce the topic and to inculcate the love for the environment and to relish the beauty of nature. The students were briefed that the Ashram has a collection of a range of plants. Children observed and explored variety of shrubs, herbs, climbers, creepers, fruits, vegetables and colourful flowers. Dr. Viral Desai, the resource person addressed the students and talked about organic farming, chemical fertilizers, healthy life style, eating habits and effects on their body. The students eagerly interacted with him. They were curious to know about the surrounding and were excited to see the variety of plants that were grown organically.The little learners were responsible and refrained themselves from touching the plants and plucking leaves or flowers as instructed to them. This field trip sensitized the students towards caring for the environment and the importance of planting more trees.
