                                      A Departmental Activity was conducted by the Mathematics Department on 12th April , 2018, Thursday . The topic of the activity was MATHEMATICAL 3D SHAPE MAKING.

                                      A net is a flattened out three dimensional solid. It is the basic skeleton outline in two dimensions which can be folded and glued together to obtain a 3D structure. Students of class VII enthusiastically participated in the activity. They showed great interest and creativity in making various 3D shapes using the net provided to them. They showcased an excellent teamwork by working together in groups. Students traced the 3D shape with the help of NET provided to them on an OHP sheet and created the 3D shapes using cutting, folding and pasting method. Children also used various decorative materials to decorate the 3D shape. This activity helped them to learn about 3D shapes, their faces, edges and vertices and also developed their kinesthetic skills.

                                      Best 5 3D shapes were selected. The shapes were made by

Student volunteers of Class V recited verses of these poets with great fervour. The “Point a Poet” Spin wheel attracted many visitors to try their hand and claim a poetic bookmark made by the children as a takeaway. There was also a “What’s the Word” Crossword puzzle activity. The two “Poetrees” at the entrance had Acrostic poems on various trees written by children, hanging on them.

                                              Though a modest exhibition, it was an amazing array of literary knowledge and language skills.
