Grade 6 visited The Spinning Wheel at Bellandur, where they had a delightful experience learning how waste can be judiciously converted into objects of treasure. Students were asked to carry waste products like old bottles, newspapers, rubber tubes, old wooden frames, metal cans or bottle caps from home. These were used to make creative and useable products.
During their visit they were asked to contemplate on various questions like:
What is waste? Are there different types of wastes? How do we presently dispose off waste? What is the impact of growing waste on the Environment? What role can you play to reduce this impact?
The students were very creative with their answers and their produce!
