To give a hands on experience related to the theme ‘Plants’, Little Stafordians were taken to a nearby plant nursery “Sugandh Vatika “ on Thursday, 26/10/2017.
The objective of the activity was to reinforce the topic-plants and to inculcate the love for the environment and to relish the beauty of nature. The students were briefed that the garden has a collection of a range of plants labelled with their botanical names. Children observed and explored variety of shrubs, cactus, creepers, herbs palm, fruits, and colourful flowers and eagerly interacted with the gardener. They were curious to know about the surrounding and were excited to see the pots of varying shapes and sizes. It was told to them that fertilizers and manure are required for plant growth.
The little learners were responsible and refrained themselves from touching the plants and plucking leaves or flowers as instructed to them. This field trip sensitized the students towards caring for the environment and the importance of planting more trees.
