Day 2

Highlights

[Exhibition]

  • Students watched a play on a life of a girl named ‘Kavya’ who shared the memories of her life, like information about her family, loved ones, her mentor, teacher, her dreams, her identity, traditions followed in her family etc. But then all her memories were taken away from her by snatching the life maps created by students and she was left clueless about her identity. Students could empathize with the main character by grieving the loss of their memories in the form of photographs and the charts made by them. The drama was followed by a speech on the importance of Indian history and how it has been shaping the world around us, how it has given an identity to the residents of the nation and how important is history to a nation’s identity.

Math:  Homework discussion was done and students were shown the following video on Ratio and proportion:

Highlight and homework – Day 2 – March 3rd

PYP Ex : Learners watched a drama on personal memories followed by speech on inventions, discoveries and achievements of India. In the earlier sessions,  learners created life map using their precious pictures which were their personal memories and as part of Drama, their personal memories were snatched along with Kaavya’s memories.

Seeing their life map being taken away, there was quite a chaos. Learners were later informed that their life map will be shredded and recycled, thereby they will never get their precious memories back. This statement received variety of response, right from flood of tears to eruption of anger. One of their major concern was also their parents’ reaction.

The session progressed with the reflection sheet “Let’s Face It” wherein they expressed their emotions and supported the same with comments. We further took up the discussion about connection between Kaavya ma’am personal story/their life map and Speech on India.

Learners, through discussion, derived that “History is to the nation as memory is to the individual.” – Arthur Schlesinger, 2007

Math : Learners went out in the open to measure their shadow. They measured their height and further measured a shadow of another taller object. They have one ratio (height of their shadow : their height) and they have a part of another ratio (height of shadow of another object) Learners will attempt to apply their learning to find out the height of the taller object.
