Class 6@Wildlife

 

At VidyaniVidyalaya students of Grade 6 have researched on the Wildlife of UK, US, Japan, Africa and India .The students also researched on the steps taken for wildlife conservation by the Government Organizations and the Non-Government Organisations of these countries. Students have done a statistical research and plethora of activities on the given topic.

This topic was incorporated in all subjects taught in the class. Students researched and gained information on the extinct and endangered species of these countries. They also got to know about the Government and Non- Government organizations that work towards the conservation of the various endangered species. Students interviewed the people of UK, Japan and India to understand their view points regarding the wildlife of their countries. The students sensitized other fellow students to save the wildlife of their country by making posters, writing slogans and they also recited poems in Hindi and Gujarati.

Extensive research work was carried out by the students on the endangered species of different countries like UK, USA, Japan, India and Africa. This information was used to make tally mark table and the bar graph. With the help of bar graph, students compared the number of endangered species of five countries in 10 years (2004-2014). They were also acquainted with the working style of NGO’s to protect endangered species.From the school the students were taken to Wild Ass Sanctuary in Gujarat which helped them relate to what they had researched. A group of students interviewed a forest official there in Gujarati.This helped the students to understand the difficulties faced by the forest personnel in implementing steps to conserve the wild life. They took reason for the increasing population of herbivorousand the reducing number of carnivorous population.
The documentary film on aquatic life was shown to the students to improve their knowledge on this particular topic.

Students solved a comprehension passage. The topic was related to “Wild life”. They also prepared questionnaires in order to interview their friends and relatives living in UK, USA, Japan, Africa and India. This helped the students to understand the view points of the people living in those countries related to wildlife.

Students prepared charts on the given subject. Students were given questionnaires from which they gained more information about the endangered species and the work done by the Government Organizations and the Non-Government Organisations.

Students made models related to the science chapter and discussed on the measures that can be taken to conserve the endangered species in India.

Our ISA project was graced by Mr. Yasuhiro Saito San from Japan. He viewed the charts and models displayed by the students. He was explained the power-point presentation. Seeing the work done by the students he congratulated them and praised them for the efforts put in.

The exhibition put up by the students was appreciated by all. The charts, models and the power-point presentation prepared by the students were displayed. Students explained the charts and the power-point presentation to the visitors and the parents. In the process both the children and the parents realised the necessity to save the wildlife.

Evaluation:-

  • While researching the students learnt a lot about the wildlife of the various countries.
  • They were actively involved in all the aspects of the project.
  • Some of them were inspired to visit the nearby wildlife sanctuary.
  • The students as they were involved with the research work of five countries were not able to get an in-depth knowledge. Instead if anyone country would have been given to the students then we could have separated the sub-topics to make it more precise and reduce the confusion that few students faced.
  • Students were able to find details of the people who took initiative to protect endangered species and tried to collect the work but were unable to interview them.

   
Class 7@Media and Publish Opinion
 

At Navrachana Vidyani Vidyalaya it’s our constant effort to incorporate innovations in our classrooms teaching-learning process. As a part of it students of grade VII had been given the project, “Media and Public opinion”. The project included research work on events where media played a vital role in voicing public issues, inducing the government to take action and change its policies in following countries-UK, China, Japan, Germany and India.

After doing a lot of research work, the students presented the collected information in the form of newspapers which consisted events where media helped in highlighting the issues and bring forth a change, of allotted countries.

The students also prepared power point presentations depicting media’s role in different social issues. They also created a project space and live blog to share information with their e-pals and partner schools. People from different countries were interviewed about the role of media, which provided the students with lots of information. Apart from these, we were privileged to have among us Mr. Michael Schneeweish from Germany who had an interactive session with the students on the topic, ‘Media and Public Opinion’. The session helped the students to get a better understanding of the role of media.

The project opened vistas for our students to gravitate towards an experiential learning and gave them a global perspective about media’s role in forming public opinion.
   
Grade 5 @ Surviving Natural Disasters
 

The students of standard V engaged themselves in a month long project on disaster management and surviving natural disasters. They studied and researched on the different kinds of natural disasters affecting various countries like U.K, Japan, India and Germany allocated to the different sections of students of standard V. They used different techniques and activities to present a plethora of information and facts they gathered from various resources across different subjects. A number of activities like power point presentation, chart making, questionnaires , worksheets, slogan writing and street play was carried out to enable the students to develop out of the box thinking , analytical capability, creative and artistic presentation, oratory and stage presentation.

Teaching surviving natural disasters in all the subjects, at the same time, helped them to learn multiple dimensions of the topic. They got a holistic idea of the topic. Through  series of activities their learning on this serious issue became more enjoyable. These activities helped students to become more aware about steps that should be taken when natural disasters occur. During research they compared natural disaster systems of above mentioned countries and found that India needs more proactive and effective disaster management system. Better coordination between multiple agencies, more public cooperation, more investment in structural safety can make a robust disaster management system.


Students learnt to prepare for any natural calamity and how to overcome it. Through various activities, they learnt several life skills like they should run outdoors to an open area away from buildings. If they are indoor they should hide under a strong table etc. Through street play, they learnt that natural calamities are caused by natural factors and can not be controlled by humans but measures can be taken to reduce its effects.

Charts, power point presentation and model also helped them to develop following soft skills like
  • Assimilation of information
  • Creative and artistic presentation of information
  • Analysis
  • Language and vocabulary.
CONCLUSION
Students were very enthusiastic about the topic as it was related to their real environment. They got first hand information about the mitigation of natural disasters. Numerous skills were developed simultaneously through series of activities.

However getting linked to other schools was challenging as some schools did not respond. Life demos and mock drills occasionally conducted by the city’s disaster management squad can be showed to the children. This will help them to get better insight.

Grade2 – 3 @Celebrations
 

Students of Std II and Std III of Navrachana Vidyani Vidyalaya had a unique experience when they explored the culture of different countries like United Kingdom, China, Japan, United States of America and India. While doing the project, “CELEBRATIONS” they gained information about the celebrations in these countries on different occasions and also celebrated different festivals in school.

They made Tableaus on various festivals of the given countries like Halloween, Christmas, Tana bata, Chinese New Year etc. They also compared the contemporary art work, sculpture work, pottery and origami work. Celebrations like Highland dancing, dragon dance, Umbrella dance and Aloha dance of different countries were exhibited.

We hope this rich experience provided to the students at such a tender age will make them more confident and knowledgeable.

 
 
Grade1@Fairy tales
 

The topic for the VCAP Project for Class 1 was, ‘Stories of  U.S.A, U.K, Japan and China’. ‘Fairy tales’ was the sub-theme for the month of August. Students made a presentation on Fairy tales of U.S.A, U.K, Japan and China.

Charts and collages were also prepared by the students with the help of teachers. Innovative ways were adopted for making charts depicting various stories by using waste materials.

Stories like Jack and the Beanstalk (U.K), Weighing an Elephant (China), The Sagacious Monkey and the Boar (Japan) and Cinderella (U.S.A) were enacted by the students with the help of hand-puppets.

The students analyzed the positive and the negative characteristics of the various characters of the Fairy tales. Each presentation concluded with a moral.

 
 
 
Grade4@Natural Resources
 

In the month of September students of std IV took up the  project to study "the Natural Resources" found in  different countries. They also studied Resources imported by these countries for their industries and the predominant industries of these countries.

With the help of the teacher students carried out an extensive research to fetch the above information for US, UK, JAPAN, GERMANY and INDIA.  Students were supposed to research on the above topic and present their findings in different ways like preparing charts, Power Point Presentations, Journal’s, elocution, speech etc…

The first 3 weeks was research work and the last week of the month long project culminated with the presentation of the work.

The most effective part of the project was interaction with Mr. Michael Schneeweis from  Germany . He shared his views  about the Natural resources of Germany and the industries over there. Students were enthusiastic to interact with him.

It was a great learning in terms of Research skills, data handling , preparing a journal,  report, Power point presentation and sharing it with schools abroad .

 
 
 
Grade8-9@ Knowing the UN
 

Enthusiasm was running high among 8th and 9th graders when we started our research on the United Nations as everyone was interested to learn more about this apex international body.    As students went about gathering information about its Aims and Objectives as well as the functioning of the various   bodies that work under the UN umbrella, we discovered that the Border Security Force (BSF) was assisting the UN Peace Keeping Mission.

By way of expressing solidarity with the BSF and acknowledging the efforts of the UN Peace Keeping Force, we took the initiative of making Posters and Banners which were sent to the BSF to be taken by them to their Peace Keeping Mission meeting scheduled to be held in Congo this year.

Our posters and banners depicted the principles of World Peace and Unity – ideals promoted by both the BSF and UN. Thus, we students worked actively to show our moral support to the UN and its initiatives aimed at ensuring world peace.
