Beyond Academics-Around the World
-Mrs. Vailena D’Souza
‘The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page.’-St. Augustine
Travelling provides rich experience and teaches us about the country’s culture, traditions, habits and so much more. Keeping this objective in mind, the ever-innovative Don Bosco High School, Matunga, collaborated with Beyond Academics, a fun learning organization, and arranged an activity based, fun-filled learning experience for the students of Std. II, through the topic-Around the World.
On 16th September, 2019, the enthusiastic team of Beyond Academics came to Std. II and in their own inimitable creative way enlightened the students on four different countries, namely-Australia, Egypt, England and Japan.
Through a foot-tapping song on continents, colourful PPT, exciting activities such as making a bookmark, an envelope, dot painting, etc., and a word search worksheet, the team ensured that each child learnt about the above-mentioned country’s capital, its flag, the language spoken, the currency used and festivals celebrated. The highlight of the entire session was the issue of a passport to each child to do his work to replace the writing of relevant information in his staid notebook.
The students soaked up all the information and actively participated in the class discussion. The session was brought to a happy close with the class teacher again playing the ‘Continent’ song and finally thanking the wonderful team for their time and effort.
