Developing the Project
We built on children's knowledge shared in phase 1, to help them conduct research and go deeper into the topic. Children got to know details about the classification of animals, details of extinct and endangered animals, their food habits, habitats etc., through videos, powerpoint presentations and child friendly kiddle.co website. A physical field trip with parents helped us to know their interest area, which turned up to be extinct and endangered animals. We explored details about extinct and endangered animals through videos, kiddle.co and visit of a resource person. Children shared their understanding through drawings, clay models, stories, rhymes and riddles.

We went to the aquatic gallery at science city. There were mama shark, baby shark, small fish, big fish, cat fish, snake fish. I wanted to see octopus but they did not have the octopus.
I visited Sundervan with my friends Shraya and Advik on 30th September, 2021.
I saw peacocks, porcupines,tortoise, crocodile, a big lizard, turtles, fish, pythons, ducks, guinea pigs, rabbits, roosters and colorful birds.
One python was moving slowly and the lizard was sleeping. Rooster was crowing loudly. Ducks were playing. I didn't like that the beautiful birds were in cage.
Ducks were eating mamra and seeds kept in a tub.
