Flashcards are one of the classic study tools, and for good reason – they promote studying through active recall, which is one of the practices through which our brains learn most effectively. A ‘fun with fruits & vegetables’ activity was recently conducted for students of grade 1 to make them aware of Vegetables and fruits and enhance their reading-listening skills. The children were divided into two groups, Group 1 was given Flash card of pictures of vegetables and group 2 was given names of the vegetables. Children were excited to find their partner and match the picture with their correct name card. It was a fun-filled activity and also developed reading and promptness in the children.
