The students of Std IV visited the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangralaya on 1st October, 2016 formerly known as the Prince of Wales Museum of Western India. It is one of the premier art and history museums in India. Presently Class IV students are learning about the history of Maharashtra in EVS II; and hence the field trip provided an opportune moment for the students to acquire more information about the same through their visit to the museum. Yet another purpose of this field trip was to help students organize and document their thoughts and information by writing down what they have seen and learnt. At the museum, the students visited the following sections: Sculpture, Pre-historic section, Tools and weapons used by Shivaji, and Indian Miniature Paintings. The students were very excited to visit the place as they were exposed to the places and things they learnt in class. This not only assisted them in enhancing the learning process but also helped develop their interest in history.
