Unit of Inquiry – Students viewed a video about ‘The boy who never listened’ to comprehend the need for the sense of hearing. Link to the story is given below:
A treasure hunt was conducted in the classroom and students were given clues to
discover parts of the ear and its functions. They wrote the journey of how sound
travels through the ear by organizing jumbled sentences. They enhanced their
understanding by watching a video on the ears
Groups were formed to denote the divisions of the ear. Using i Pads, books, fact
sheets students researched information about the role of ear wax, how ears help in
maintaining balance etc.
Students discovered more about the nose through an experiment on how air
molecules reach the nose. They also watched a video related to it, the link for which
is given below
Students read the ‘The magic school bus’ to understand how different smells are
They also got to know about the structure and working of the nose. They
brainstormed and listed ways to take care of their nose.
During Math lessons, students were introduced to properties of multiplication:

Associative Property: When three or more numbers are multiplied, the product is the

Multiplicative Identity Property: The product of any number and one is the number
itself. For example 5 X 1 = 5.
Zero Property: The product of any number and zero is zero. For example 5 X 0 = 0.
Students practiced multiplying two and three digit numbers using different
multiplication strategies like repeated addition, array method, grouping and
multiplication on the number line. They are now in the process of revisiting the times
tables and revising the concept of multiplication through classroom games. They attempted a summative assessment on symmetry and a formative assessment on
During their English lesson, students learned about procedural writing. They started

During Hindi classes students enhanced their reading and writing skills by reciting a
poem sardi aai identified and wrote मिलते -जुलते शब्द (rhyming words) , विलोम शब्द
(antonyms) and engaged in वाक्य -रचना (sentence construction). Discussion on
how they can take care of the sense organs was held to enhance listening and
Students learned the numbers from 1 to 30 in Spanish and understood the pattern in which the numbers are spelled and pronounced. Students practiced the numbers on the white board and verbally. Students also watched a video based on the numbers to understand their pronunciation better.

Visual Art – Students gained an understanding of Wassily Kandinsky and his style of painting.Kandinsky was an artist who expressed his feelings and emotions through music and colours. Students expressed freely through colours while connecting to jazz music.

to the world around them. A piece of music was played and students explored working with oil pastels while listening to the music. Few closed their eyes to feel the
music, others moved their hand keeping the rhythm of the music while working
ICT – Students created a script for recording on sense organs. They used this information
to further create a video on Vittle app as an assessment thereby integrating the unit
Physical Education – Introduction to Yoga helped students to comprehend its relation to the senses.Simple definition of yoga is to bring together body, mind and spirit as a harmonious whole. Students were introduced to ‘surya namaskar’. They also played
