Aashadhi Ekadashi on 20th July 2021
Children at Jumping Joeys celebrated Aashadhi Ekadashi on 20th July 2021. Preserving our culture and traditions and passing them on to future generations in a unique way was the main aim of this celebration. A variety of enriching experiences with STEAM learning modules were provided to the children, that they would remember for a long time.
Science– they learnt about the importance of parts of a Tulsi plant. They planted tulsi seeds in a pot.
Technology– they used the chop and churn machine. The technology of the use of a blade showed them how a lot of cucumber could be chopped uniformly and in very less time and effort.
Engineering– they built their own temple models with material provided to them, using their own imagination.
Art– they used zhanj and chipli as they sang hymns and chanted God’s name.
Math– they made a chanting garland out of 108 beads.
They relished sabudana khichadi, cucumber salad and rajgira ladoo after the activity.
