Euro School, Airoli conducted a project ‘Unveil the Roots of Civilisation’ wherein students of classes V to VII, created monuments and articles which described the different stages of human civilisation. Students also worn the clothes of that period to create the atmosphere.
About 250 students executed the project in the last three months and each class represented a different period of civilisation. The project was part of the British Council ISA Action Plan, which was aimed at explaining the key elements including religion, philosophy, environment, culture, intellect, politics, and economy of the different civilisations.
“Students took part enthusiastically in the project and it was almost festival like,” said Geeta Aggrawal, vice principal of Euro School.
Students created monuments and articles such as posters, brochures, passports and scrapbooks among other things which were based on the different civilizations they had learned about. School teachers made the students aware about archaeological evidences from civilisations and explore and appreciate the historical legacy.
“During the project, the students first dressed as the early man and went out to the open field where they did fishing and hunting. They tried igniting fire by striking stones. They also enjoyed their meal on banana leaves like the early man did,” said Aggarwal.
Some students made attractive brochures and passports playing the role of travel guides.
