A field trip to Dakshinchitra (“a living museum of art, architecture, crafts and performing arts of South India”) was arranged for the students of Grade IV and V on Wednesday, 13th November 2019. Children were awestruck by looking at the traditional culture of Tamilnadu, Andra Pradesh, Karnataka and Kerala. This exhibit took them back in time to relish and to live life of the Dravidians in the ancient time.
Children were taken on a tour through various houses at Dakshinchitra, the need for things in the various houses were well explained. They learned about different kinds of houses including Weavers’ and Potters’. Watching the potter making pot by just molding the clay on a wheel was indeed a learning experience for them.
The most exciting part of the field trip was the shadow puppet show. It was a memorable journey for all our students.
