PYP 1 Students on Natural Resources

Our Children Are No Longer the People~ As We Were in The School

Our Children’s learning journey, in preparing them therefore, for the technologically advanced and multitasking, mind mapping world need to be different. Here is a small display of our 5 to 6 years old students of PYP I ~students showcased their love for learning.

Three champions of five (5) to six (6) years of age ~ IB PYP1 have shown their passion and zeal for learning by making model projects on wise use of natural resources. Kabir Jagwanee, Tanishka Tripathi, Nysha Guhagarkar and Elaia Durand in the unit, “Sharing the Planet” have created projects and charts by their own initiative. TOI Digital Coverage. 

At Victorious Kidss Educares, we encourage children to grow independently and be responsible of their own learning. Cultivating a ‘love for learning’ helps the children enjoy their work, want to learn more ~ because they do it by their own creative choices and are enthusiastic to show to the world that they ‘CAN’. Can what, any and everything! Says President of VKE ~ Shri Ghosh, “They do not have to be pushed. The principles of Vedanta coupled with International Baccalaureate (IB) teaching and learning pedagogy, are totally different and guided with joy and freedom.  The entire journey of learning, instead of traditional accumulation of enormous amount of data ~ facts, children are guided to discover, in their journey of self-discovery. This thrilling process is very challenging and yet the way a student learns, a teacher creates curiosity, in the hearts of learner becomes very exciting a learning journey for both the teachers as well as the child”.

With inquiry in their mind, after the topic, which was covered in class, students of PYP1 made models on different types of natural resources and how to use it wisely with their understanding. All four young students of 5 to 6 years of age, reflected on the entire topic, constructed the model and explained it beautifully to their classmates, teachers and our President Sir Robbin Ghosh.

In the model, Kabir explained about the following natural resources as-

  • Petroleum comes from the sea, then goes to the petrol tankers. The tankers take it to pump.
  • Water is used for bathing and drinking. Water on turbines gives electricity.
  • Fish is a sea animal, that we can eat.
  • Coal is used for keeping us warm and flies don’t come.
  • Wind produces electricity from wind mills.
  • Sun gives us sunlight and we get solar energy.

Elaia made a working model of how wind mills can generate electricity, and explained the process strikingly well.

Isn’t it the love for learning? We at Victorious Kidss Educares explore the hidden consciousness from within every child, that they can. That is how they become responsible lifelong learners.
