UKG Children of Mount Carmel Central School celebrate a Veggie Day
Mangaluru: Hurrah! It’s a Veggie Day! Green, purple, orange, and red—all of these from the soil bed! Vegetables are an essential component of the food we consume, thereby being a vital contributor to our nutrition. To make the UKG students understand this concept, Mount Carmel Central School, Mangaluru, had a joyful veggie day celebration recently.
Children generalized their learning through their class project, when the plants of some vegetables were shown in their totality, followed by a video presentation to learn the benefits of vegetables for a healthy immune system and growth. Children were enthused as they were watching these videos, and some even had a few queries. This was supported by hands-on activities in art and craft. They enjoyed the day’s snack of green salad. A visit to the nearby vegetable garden reinforced their learning.
It was a happy moment to see the children singing rhymes related to the vegetables. At the end, they carried home a craft with the message “We shall grow our own vegetables for better nutrition and good health”.
