Grade 2 students of The Modern School, went on a road trip to explore different types of buildings and structures of the city as part of the current class unit of the same name (Buildings & Structures).
The students travelled to Gomti Barrage, GPO, Vidhan Sabha, Hotel Clarks Avadh,Charbagh Railway station and at Bara Imambara, with quick stops at some of those places.
The students discussed history and other facts about the buildings and structures like construction material used and effects of the building on its surroundings, etc. The students had a lot of fun connecting classroom topics to real life.
Most importantly the students got an opportunity to develop many attributes (inquirer, caring, principled, communicator and knowledgeable) and attitudes (curiosity, confidence, enthusiasm and co-operation).
The stop at Bada Imambara was the longest with eatables provided by the school.
Field trips enhance student learning by providing opportunities for students to explore and connect classroom learning to the real world. With this idea students of Grade 4 visited the Science City, on 25th of October 2013.
The students visited different parts of Science City like ‘Energy section’, ‘Fun Science section’, ‘3D science show’, IMAX show and taramandal show.
Energy section had different exhibits on different forms of energy e.g. heat, light, mechanical, electrical energy etc. It also had exhibits on energy and its production, its practical application, environmental issues and many more.
In the Fun Science section kids experienced various complex concepts of science in highly entertaining form. There were various experiments on the concepts of light and sound.
The 3D, imax and taramandal show was the most fun for the kids and students wanted to see them again.
All in all students learnt with fun and real life connections.
