Nature walk for Science class

The 3rd grade went for a nature walk today to learn about trees.

They learned to identify the acacia,  wild baadam, neem,  gulmohar, copper pod, mast tree etc. They saw how the bark, leaves and flowers were different even for these trees. They collected all sorts of leaves, flowers, seed pods. 

Then they made bark rubbing by tracing the bark's pattern onto a piece of paper. This was a new skill they learned. 

Coming back, the children had to arrange the leaves from the smallest to the largest - a trick question - how do you place the gulmohar's compound leaf? They had to sketch and label their leaves in their workbook.

I was truly impressed at the way they talk - plastic bag  recycling, leaves decomposing, etc etc. MashaAllah
