Learning about Heritage Houses

The students of grade IV went on a field trip to Dakshina Chitra located on the East Coast Road. On arrival, the students drank a refreshing welcome drink that tasted like rose water. With the help of a tour guide, the students were shown different types of houses at display. They saw the Ikkat house, Andhra house, Chettinad house and Kerala house. Students also got to have a fun bullock cart ride. They also got to try their hand with pottery and made small pots. Towards the end of the field trip they watched a puppet show about Lord Krishna. The trip ended on a memorable note and students got to take the pots back home that they made during the pottery session, as a souvenir.
