Plants gives us life directly and indirectly as they are the source of oxygen production, CO2 consumption and source of rain. They are most precious gift to the humanity on the earth from nature for which we must be grateful, give honour and preserve them for the mankind wellness. They are the real source of our health as well as wealth because they give us oxygen, cool air,fruits, spices, vegetables, medicines, water, wood, furniture, shadow, fuel to burn, houses, fodder to animals and other useful things. They consume all the CO2, refresh air from toxic gases and prevent us from the air pollution.
The story of “JACK AND THE BEANSTALK” was enacted by the PP2 facilitators to explain the children the process of seed germination and time consumed for a seed to build into a plant or a tree.
STUDENT ACTION: The geckos were very curious to know the growth procedure of plants and their benefits. They enthusiastically watched the skit and inquired about the essentials of a seed to grow. The geckos have sown the fenugreek seeds and observed the seed germination day after day. They acquired knowledge on the time consumed for a seed to grow into a plant and also the essentials required such as air, water, sunlight and soil. The geckos discussed about the significance of plants in our lives as they are the food, oxygen, clothes and many other necessary providers to humans and animals.
LEARNING OUTCOME: The children were able to practically grow seeds into a plant. They were able to express their views in regards to plants and their importance in our lives. Every child became knowledgeable and got aware of the great significance of plants as they being the food, oxygen, clothes, shelter, wood and many more providers to us. Through the enactment of the story “JACK AND THE BEANSTALK” children understood that nothing can happen magically, instead one has to work hard and await for the seed to grow into a plant. It needs dedication, devotion, and be focussed to achieve.
