As the extension learning of Inquiry Module -4 on the topic “Water is a resource and affects our daily life” a field visit to Ranadheera Kanteerava Park, Jayanagar was arranged for IK 2 on 12th March, 2019. It was organized to correlate the knowledge on the topic with the external environment. Change in seasons and weather conditions create field trip opportunities and outdoor activities for children. Summer time keeps the children busy playing in park and water.
The objectives of the field trip were:
- Reinforcement of day and night concept.
- Identify, observe the color of the sky during daytime.
- Identify, observe the heavenly bodies present in the sky during daytime.
- Activities done during day time.
Children were found excited to see the play area of the Ranadheera Kanteerava Park. They tried to correlate their prior knowledge with the environment. Children also correlated their knowledge of the number concepts, colors, and shapes and with the transportation theme by viewing the moving vehicles outside the park area. The session ended with a recap on the observations made by the children.
