Creativity is as important now in education as literacy and we should treat it with the same status. – Ken Robinson
In the present era, co-curricular activities have become the integral part of education. When students participate in co-curricular activities, they are exposed to a plethora of options. With this view, there were diverse activities methodized at MIS International School on 08.06.22 according to the cognitive level of the students. The purpose of such activities was to enable the students to understand their potential and show their caliber.
The Ocean produces over half of the world’s oxygen and absorbs 50 times more carbon dioxide than our atmosphere. Covering 70 percent of the Earth’s surface, the ocean transports heat from the equator to the poles, regulating our climate and weather patterns. Oceans are also an important source of food. They host 80 percent of the planet’s biodiversity, and are the largest ecosystem on Earth. Fish provide 20 percent of animal protein to about 3 billion people. Hence celebrating World Ocean Day is of great significance.
Students of grades 1 and 2 celebrated World Ocean Day by creating small aquariums. They pasted different types of aquatic flora and fauna, some stones, shells and cut-outs of fish for their aquarium which showed the real marine world. Their creativity was at its best. Students of grades 3 to 5 made a booklet on ‘Exploring marine Life’. The students selected their favorite marine creature, gathered information related to the diet, habitat, behavior and interesting facts about the selected creature. They beautifully presented the information in a booklet form.
The activities were conducted keeping in view the short term objectives that will definitely guide our students in the long run and help them to bloom in their future.
