Ask a question!

At the very initial stage of project ‘Contextualising Education with Farming and Ecology’, an activity was conducted with Upper Primary students wherein with the help of Inquiry-based approach, students were encouraged to think and ask questions on certain themes from their immediate environment. This list of questions was compiled and shared with team members. Some of the outcomes of the activity were developing thinking skills, framing of questions from their surroundings and understanding of a concept. Most importantly we got to know exactly what kids wanted to know or learn. The approach is an active form of learning where a learner can identify a gap, or a problem by himself and pose an inquiry around a theme.

An assortment of questions asked by the students asked are given as follows:


  1. why do we feel warm in light?
  2. The moon also produces light without any human efforts why can't we use that light?
  3. how are we able to see when light is on?
  4. why can't we catch hold of light?
  5. who made Jungle?
  6. who coined the term jungle?
  7. how do plants grow on their own in a Jungle?
  8. why don't stars sparkle on earth?
  9. why are stars so far?
  10. why do we feel hungry?
  11. why do people have a favourite food item?
  12. why is sky blue?
  13. why don't we live in the sky?
  14. who named different seasons?
  15. why do we see different birds in different seasons?
  16. how is a mountain made?
  17. where does water come from?
  18. what is soil made of?
  19. why are there stones in soil?
  20. why doesn’t plastic decay?
  21. how are you able to smell with your nose?
  22. why do we have two holes in our nose?
  23. why do we have two eyes?
  24. why is our tongue of pink colour only?
  25. why can we not see air?

 These questions and more are one of the many aspects that will form the base of our content development exercise in our ‘School Farm Project’.
