EduTrips are an integral part of the teaching-learning methodology at Manav Rachna International School. In keeping with the same, the students of Nursery were taken to see the Banyan Tree under the on-going theme ‘My Country My World’. The students have been learning about the National Symbols of India as part of the theme and have been doing various activities to strengthen and reinforce the learning that takes place in the class. The Banyan Tree is the National Tree of India. The branches of the tree root themselves like new trees that spread over a large area. The roots then give rise to more trunks and branches. This tree is considered immortal because of its long life and its characteristics. The students of Nursery were taken to see this magnificent tree which is considered sacred by the people of India. The children came back very excited and full of information that their teachers had given to them about the Banyan Tree – the National Tree of India.
