Based on the responses children gave during phase I, teachers had an insight about the knowledge of children and thought that it was important for them to know about different types of animals, their food, habitat and young ones. Children explored these topics in detail through online research.

Adding our knowledge through online research
Finding out how animals are useful to us apart from giving us joy...
After exploring different types of animals and their uses, it was time for children to select an animal which fascinated them the most and wanted to know more about that animal. So the children were divided into two small groups where each group conducted an in-depth study on an animal of their choice.
Group 1 decided to do an in-depth study about a giraffe
Kiaan: "Wild animal Giraffe banana hai, because I love it, iski long long neck hoti hai."
Aarsh: "Wild animal Giraffe banaau che."
Darsh: "Ma'am maaru favourite animal Gorilla che orangutang bhi iska friend hai."
Group 2 decided to do an in-depth study about an elephant
