Nature has inspired the imagination of some of mankind’s most brilliant artists. Keeping this in mind an activity called “My Imagination” was conducted for the students of grade 2. The students were asked what imagination meant to tem and what all they imagine in their dreams. The emphasis was on to make them think about what they can imagine out of box. This was first conceptualised in words then the students drew them. They also presented their imagination sheet in front of class. It was a wonderful experience to see how far they can imagine.
