Class II- Stay Fit
A healthy body leads to a healthy mind. The art of practicing yoga helps in controlling an individual's mind, body and soul. It brings together physical and mental disciplines to achieve a peaceful body and mind. It helps manage stress and anxiety and keeps us relaxing. Yoga asanas build strength, flexibility and confidence. Keeping all this in mind a yoga activity was organised for the children to stay fit and healthy, specially in these times of pandemic.

Class III – Quiz On the life of Gandhiji
An online quiz was conducted for the children of class III. By means of a quiz children were made to be able to learn about the life of Mahatma Gandhi. This was one of the research based activity in which children could willingly tend to learn about the life of Mahatma Gandhi and his principles.

Class IV- Be kind and keep the surroundings clean
It is important to learn by doing. To understand the importance of cleanliness children were made to take up the initiative to keep their surroundings clean. They conducted a cleanliness drive in their house as during this time of pandemic they should stay home and stay safe. To inculcate the good values of love and kindness for birds, animals and plants, it is important for the children to start caring for them at home. They also kept water pots and food for animals and birds.

Class V – Essay writing on the topic “Teachings of Mahatma Gandhi”
Essay writing is a great way of expression. By means of writing children can gather a lot of information about a topic. Keeping all this in mind children were given the task of writing an essay on the topic- “Teachings of Mahatma Gandhi”.         
Looking forward to a similar enthusiastic participation in the activities coming up, from all.
