Glimpses of gallery walk [UOI]

TDT- Where we are in place and time.

Central Idea- Learning about previous generations helps people understand the relationship between the past and the present.

As a part of tuning in activity, the learners were taken for gallery walk where they saw pictures of different old and new things like vessels, phones, games,clothes, houses, vehicles etc. Few of them could share that some things they saw were used in past  i.e.” ye purana tv hai,pehle use karte the,  dada-dadi use karte the…” and some things are used by their parents as well as by themselves.
