Little ones learn about plants, how to nurture them
The senior KG children of Guru Harkishan High School, Santacruz, were introduced to the importance of plants and what they need to grow — food, sunlight and water. They were also explained the importance of oxygen in the air and how important plants are for our life.
The activity was taken up by the coordinator, Sangeeta Sharma, who told the children about the various uses of plants, for instance, in making medicine, procuring wood and fruits, etc. The children were inspired to love and nurture plants and nature around them and never pluck flowers and leaves.
Each child was given a used drinking water bottle and a few seeds. They sowed the seeds by following the instructions of the coordinator. The bottles were used to show how to recycle old things.
In this way, they not only succeeded in reducing the waste, but also added it to their creativity. It was an interesting and informative activity.
The children were very happy and learnt something new.
