On the basis of collective observations of children from Phase one, Phase two explorations were planned. Based on children's emerging interests, an in-depth study was done through online research and some hands on exploration. Children came up with different ideas about their models and eventually came to common agreements through discussion, brainstorming and negotiation.

Ruhaan - "I can take Mishka for walk with mumma and daddy, I protect Mishka from mumma and didi, Mishka likes to eat it's bone, eggs and chicken."
