“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.” - Audrey Hepburn
Young students are experiential, hands-on learners and can be motivated to learn through a ‘Garden’ theme. Theme gardens can promote learning, exploration, and discovery by using plants. So our students in these pandemic times too discovered flowering and non-flowering plants and showed each other what all they had at home. They also proudly shared about the various herbs they planted, or had in their houses, and discussed their uses. They shared their knowledge about trees and tried to gain more. They were given a virtual tour of the Mughal Garden and were amazed at the collection, variety, colour and the layout. The learning of the students was fruitful through the basic four learning styles- visual, auditory, reading and writing, and kinesthetic. They virtually saw, discussed, wrote about, and discovered more about gardens.
