Imagicaaaa!! O yaee yaee yaa….

Imagicaaaa!! O yaee yaee yaa….

Right from the beginning of the year, we have been eagerly waiting for the Force and Motion unit to begin. This eagerness to meet Newton??? Of course not!! This wait was for the coveted Imagica trip.

We started our trip in wee hours of Wednesday morning and reached Durshet camp by late afternoon. After a sumptuous lunch and a short break we started with adventure sports which included an exhilarating zip line and rappelling. Woohoo!! Fun all the way………

Next in line was a character dress up competition, wherein, each group had to cross dress a boy as a queen and a girl as a king. It was amusing!! This was followed by a DJ party and dinner. Nightfall brought dreams for the awaited trip…..

Early morning we started with warm up exercise and a long walk. Finally, by 10.30 we left for Imagica!! Yipppeee!! Many of us have been to Imagica earlier but this time it was with a different perspective. With high adrenaline levels we entered the first ride, Nitro, a roller coaster zapping, zipping and zooming taking us into a new space. We observed the chain lift and Newton knocked our brains out while observing the mechanism during various rides. What followed was a jubilant day!! Right from the Scream machine to Dare 2 Drop and from Alibaba Chaalis Chor to Curse of Salimgarh. We experienced a plethora of emotions. Shouting! Chanting! Jumping! This fun and learn day has been etched into our memories forever. Whoa!! Excitement at its peak. By the end of the day, our spirits were soaring and our bodies were experiencing crests and lows with equal gaiety.

Dinner, sizzling hot and delicious was served on large platters for us to enjoy when we returned to the camp site. Day ended with camp fire and dance.

The third day, came in with morning exercises, laddering and wall climbing. We left the camp after a prize distribution ceremony. All’s well that ends well! We left with a heavy heart but after a thoroughly enjoyed trip!!

Day 3 – Monday:

Settling task – Chanting tables.

LWE: Learners parsed the sentence for Week 10 – Day 1.

[Unit Of Inquiry] Students once again revised the concept of zones, hemispheres and location of a place in terms of Longitudes and Latitudes. They also located few cities and countries on the political map. The teacher took the students to explore the world map outside the library and explained each and every feature of the map along with mapping. Later the teacher gave one place to the students to locate it on the map, as role modeled by the teacher. She divided students into 5 groups and allotted different place to each group, where they have to locate and find out all the details about the respective place in their groups. [Eg. Australia is located between 10 degrees south and 46 degrees south latitudes and between 110 degrees east and 160 degrees east longitudes.]

Learning outcome:- To enhance students mapping skills.
