When learning about Asia Elementary 1 focused on India.
 
The children showed great interest in looking at different Indian artefacts and pictures.  The children made their own India maps when learning about animals and plants of India.
 
Outside in the garden, whilst sitting around the world map floor mat, we situated ourselves near the Buddha statue in the peace garden. 
 
Elementary 1 listened attentively to the story about Buddha's life. They learnt why, for many people, Buddha is a special man and why people around the world celebrate "Buddha day" which is the celebration of his birthday.
 
The children had a great time listening to Indian music and trying to meditate.
