Earth is called as a green planet due to presence of plants on it, without plants there can be no environment and human life on this earth. Their presence is inevitable for clean air, food and water.Plants are the main source of food for humans. Plants unlike like human and animals manufacture their own food. They do so by the process known as photosynthesis by use of sunlight. They can convert and store the light energy in the form of carbohydrates. This process takes place in the leaves (chlorophyll) by use of carbon dioxide and water. From this manufactured food, they consume some of it and store the remaining. This is stored in the form of fruits,seeds, tuberous roots etc. This fruits and other parts of plants are consumed by humans. The food is in the form of vegetables, fruits, grains, cereals, leaves, seeds etc.As the POI topic being “Plants” and the central idea being “Plants are food providers” we have prepared bhelpuri.
STUDENT ACTION: The geckos have enjoyed and actively participated in making the bhelpuri. They realised that the food we eat is been manufactured by plants. They acquired knowledge on how a seed grows into a plant and then further how it is useful to human life to survive as plants are food providers.The children co operated with each other and stirred the bowl of bhelpuri and got familiarized with ingredients used in preparation of bhelpuri. The bhelpuri was served to geckos and they enjoyed its taste too.
