Exploring the path of GIIS Creative Curriculum
The Creative Curriculum classes commenced with a lot of enthusiasm among the students.
Grade 6 conducted an activity in order to investigate Lung capacity. They were to ascertain how much air human lungs could hold. It was explained that there were a number of things that influenced a human lung capacity. The students tested their lung capacity by blowing the balloons and measuring its circumference. They did this activity after a series of physical movements like seating, jumping, running, doing push-ups and so on. Then they came up with the conclusion that different factors had different effects on a human lung capacity.
Grade 7 did an interesting activity called Diffy wherein they had to fill a number maze (in numbers and squares), with numbers which were the differences of their previous two numbers. The children were very enthusiastic as their concepts of addition and subtraction in numbers got better. They also sharpened their logical reasoning, pattern identification and mental maths calculations.
Grade 8 students did Dialogue narration. They were divided into 5 groups and each group was asked to decide unanimously four famous personalities chosen across the world and with whom they would love to have dinner. They were to write a narrative essay by including relevant dialogues that they had while dining with the eminent personalities. This activity boosted the students' written communication skills.
