“Monuments are for the living, not for the dead.” – Frank Wedekind
A monument is a type of structure that was explicitly created to commemorate a person or event or which has become relevant to a social group. Monuments have cultural, political, architectural and artistic importance. Reading monument gives a sense of wonder and makes children curious to know about past.
In this week during the Global Studies Class children learnt about different Monuments of South American countries.
They were actively engaged in an activity of drawing their favourite monument situated in South American countries they read about. They drew the pictures of the monuments and wrote facts about the same.Our SAIoneers enjoyed doing the activity and learnt about fine details about the monuments of South American countries. An interactive discussion held amongst them and they shared amazing facts about the topic.
It was overall a participatory and enjoyable class.
