Playing with mud…making bricks and houses
Children love to play with mud. Integrating a learning experience with an activity that they like to do is what “Make your own house” from Small Science textbook, Class III, Chapter 12 does. We wondered how children actually carry out the activity in the classroom…We decided to carry out the activity ourselves and reflected on our experiences engaging in the task. Mud brick is one of the oldest as well as eco-friendly building materials and at the end of the building’s lifetime, the bricks will break down to earth again.
