Helping the world Go Green!
To instil in children the value of conserving and protecting our natural resources for future generations and to inculcate in them a love for our earth and nature, we have the Go Green initiative for the Montessori students.
Following were the activities done by the Seniors in Semester 1 as part of Go Green.
In the month of June students were introduced to the Go Green initiative. They learnt about their responsibilities towards protecting the environment and how each one of us can contribute to this cause. Then the children sowed coriander seeds.
Children were shown a PPT on herbs and they sowed methi seeds.
Children were briefed on the three Rs – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle, following which they did their own newspaper bags to store their things. They were also shown a demo of pruning over-grown plants and repotting. The pruned ajwain stems were used for planting in the children’s own pots. The children took home with them their coriander saplings.
Children saw how seeds also come from flowers as they sowed marigold seeds and watched it grow. To show them how plants propagate from seeds in fruits, ripened tomatoes and seeds from chillies were used for sowing. Children took home their new-grown ajwain plants.
