EXPLORING MESMERISING ASSAM AND MYSTIC KERALA
(A follow-up session of Beyond Academics activity)
-Mrs. Shahnaaz Abbas
‘Learning by Doing is the best way to learn’
Beyond Academics team has this in mind when they conduct different activities on the school campus. For us here at Don Bosco Matunga, a follow-up session was held on 6 March 2019 for students of Std. IV on the topic ‘States and Cultures’ introduced to the boys of Std. IV by the Beyond Academics Team on February 23, 2019.
A Quiz was conducted in class on the two states of Assam and Kerala. The top scorers of the quiz were felicitated in class. This quiz helped the teachers ascertain the extent of assimilation of knowledge by the students at a similar activity conducted at the previous session.
The students also made colourful aeroplanes using popsicle sticks co-relating it with the fact that Assam is famous for its wood and bamboo products. The students enjoyed the follow-up session with all its activities.
The students had this to say about the day, “Recalling information given during the Quiz was a challenge. The activity done in class kept us really engaged.”
