Grade III students of Manav Rachna International School, Ludhiana, mesmerized parents by showcasing their learning of the Indus Valley Civilization
Manav Rachna International School firmly believes in helping students develop thinking skills. The School does so by delivering the curriculum in a manner that makes students put on their thinking caps about the topic in question. A subject like Social Studies is a subject of utmost interest to the students of Manav Rachna International School, Ludhiana, because of the way in which students learn it. The Social Studies class is about reflecting on a series of events, drawing inference from them, doing personal connect journaling to note reflections. It does not involve learning events in a chronological order.
The students of Grade III showcased their learning of the Indus valley Civilisation with confidence in front of their parents. They chanted the Gayatri Mantra to start the proceedings. The students prepared the audience about the flow of events through a brief introduction about how cultures flow from a river. The students played the role of an archaeologist. They displayed the model of Indus valley Civilisation and apprised the parents with the characteristic features of the Harappa cities. Through their melodious song, ‘Amazing Indus valley’, the students shared their desire to live in those times when Indus Valley Civilisation existed. They also displayed various artefacts, seals and craft work which they had created in the class with the help of their Paragon teacher. The parents were awestruck with the learning of Grade III students and were proud to see their wards walking up confidently to share their learning. Mrs. Shilpi Gill, Vice-principal, Manav Rachna International School, Ludhiana remarked, “I am extremely happy to see how students have developed the confidence to display their learning, public speaking and stage etiquette in a very short span of time.” She appreciated the students and teachers for working hard to put up the wonderful show. Ms. Gill also thanked the parents for their support and co-operation.
