Nature Activity & Art with a Purpose  (Feb 2020) - Nature is all around us and deep within us. At Pallikkoodam, we are deeply committed to encouraging our next generation to appreciate and care for Nature, as we continue to implement Nature Activities & Art with a purpose.Our Pre- Kindergarteners (Explorers) at Lil Pallikkoodam, not only felt the joy of accomplishment as they climbed the tree, but it was an integrated fun drill in disguise to develop balance, strength, body control and activate all senses including feeling the tree, hearing the leaves rustling through the breeze, smelling the flowers up close, and seeing the world from a new perspective. This activity also helps build the basis for critical thinking while deeply connecting them to nature.More so, the Leaf Collage activities done by gathering fallen or dried leaves, ( collected during their nature walk) was a fun collaborative effort and a rich sensory experience that encouraged patterning for kids while improving their fine motor skills.Children were deeply engrossed in turning each leaf into a unique canvas by painting and creating patterns and designs on them. It was elating to watch Kids brainstorming and voicing out their thoughts strongly ‘To Save Trees’ as their curiosity led to a gradual understanding of ‘Why Trees were important to mankind and the world.’ - signifying the potential and promise of future ambassadors for a Greener World.Followed by a myriad of Nature Activities & Art that included painting trees and making impressions using twigs, small branches and dried leaves etc., the unusual paint brushes opened unexplored dimensions of creativity in children. Using clay dough, they also made their favourite trees such as Apple Tree, Orange Tree, Coconut Tree and Banana Tree in their own world of imagination…As a wholeschool initiative, we continue to emphasize on the 3 Rs – Reduce – Reuse – Recycle which motivated our Kindergarteners to use compostable cups with embedded seeds having their names marked on each cup, which can be planted in community gardens or designated green spaces in future so that flowers and plants can grow from it.Appreciating and Caring for Nature starts young!#savetrees #donotcuttrees #saveearth #savetheplanet #fightclimatechange #natureart #natureactivities #leafart #leafpainting #leafcollage #treeclimbingforchildren #lilpallikkoodam #rakspallikkoodam #childrenandnature #sustainablepractices #greenschool #bestschoolsincoimbatore #topschoolsincoimbatore #toprankedschoolsincoimbatore #outdoorlearning #naturewall #reggioinspired #creativecurriculum
