PRESIDIANS LEARN ABOUT ELECTRIC CONDUCTION THROUGH LIQUIDS
Students of grade 8, across sections, performed an activity to check if liquids could also conduct electric current and classified the various liquids tested as electrolytes (strong and weak) and non-electrolytes. During the activity, they tested different liquids found at home like tap water, salt solution, vinegar, milk, honey, etc. by dipping two free ends of naked wires, which were a part of an electric circuit. As a tester, they took LED and a magnetic compass (used to test weak current). They wrote down their observations in a tabular form in their notebooks. Students concluded from this activity that some liquids conduct electricity while some do not. The LED glowed for the conducting liquids, and also these liquids showed a magnetic needle deflection. The students learned the concept of electrolytes and non-electrolytes and learned skills of observation and conclusion.
INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE: PLEDGING OF PEACE!
"Peace is a daily, a weekly, a monthly process, gradually changing opinions, slowly eroding old barriers, quietly building new structures."
The International Day of Peace, sometimes unofficially known as World Peace Day, is a United Nations-sanctioned holiday observed annually on 21 September. It is dedicated to world peace, and specifically, the absence of war and violence, such as might be occasioned by a temporary ceasefire in a combat zone for humanitarian aid access. The 2020 theme for the International Day of Peace is "Shaping Peace Together." Keeping this thought in their minds , grade 3 Presidians has marked this day of celebration through various discussions on 'Peace.' Wherein, they discussed India and China's present scenario and shared their views. They discussed, "What steps could be taken to ensure peace or tranquility between the two countries and their people." They have also stimulated their knowledge and thought on Peace by making cards and posters. This activity helped them to feel connected to the world as a whole and also enhanced their creativity skills.
