This workshop was conducted for some children of the assistants / help of a residential community, to acknowledge their value in making everyone’s lives easier.
It started with some games where children could try to identify a tree by just the feel of the tree. Then the children discussed about their experiences, and more about trees and nature around them.
The workshop went on to demo several science experiments, where the children wondered how they worked, and came up with different possibilities. The facilitator encouraged the discussion with questions, and finally explained the reason. Its always amazing how children come up with so many diverse kinds of theories when they’re curious!
Finally they had some breakfast and left with their tummies full and hopefully some more ability to observe and question the world around them!
