Highlights and homework – Day 1 – August 11th

UOI : Learners discussed the statement, “Every system/organization needs to divide roles and responsibilities to efficiently run the organization.” Further, they acquired knowledge about 3 branches of government – Legislative, Executive and Judiciary.

As a class, they recited below poem

Government Branches song

Later, they explored the below mentioned roles and understood the branches in detail.

Roles :

Legislature : 1. The policy making body of India. 2.Controls all the money; taxes, borrows, and sets the budget. (executive branch cant raise or spend money without legislature’s permission) 3.Oversees, investigates, and makes the rules for the government and its officers. 4. also referred parliament

Math : Learners explored learning centres to understand the quadrilaterals. Through the engagement they concluded :

  1. Quadrilateral can be made using different polygons. Polygons can be organised in the desired shape.
  2. Size of the quadrilateral may vary but the angles of the quadrilateral remains the same.
  3. The sum of the angle of a quadrilateral is always 360 degrees. (At the end of the session, we still had the disagreement over the last point by some of the learners – hence more exploration is our short term aim)

Language : Learners were introduced to the new comprehension strategy – “Inference.” They understood that “Background Knowledge + Text/Visual clues = Inference” They, later, observed teacher inferring the text from the chapter 6 of Giver.
