Social Studies


The students are already aware of the basic concepts about living and non-living things

which have been dealt with in class II. In class III this concept would be further enhanced

by taking forth the topic in depth. The students would realise that living things have sense

organs which are of great signifi cance and they would further appreciate the fact that

sense organs are of great importance and it is very essen al to take care of each one

of them. The children will be exposed to the idea that any form of disability can be

transformed into an ability. They would be updated about the Braille system which is the

medium of instruc on for the visually impaired.

Teachers’ Notes

The essence of childhood development at the Primary level is to become observant and

develop the ability to correlate to their surroundings/environment, being judgmental,

and arrive at conclusions. The objec ve of teaching Social Science is to create and to

develop ap tude and an a tude, to create awareness about socio-poli cal-cultural and

environmental issues at the global level. The Unit on “Myself” deals with similari es and

diff erences between living and non- living things, taking care of sense organs, dealing with

the ear and eye problems, developing sensi vity towards hearing and visually impaired.

To induce curiosity, power of self expression and total involvement in hands on ac vi es,

these lesson plans have been designed with open ended ques ons, presenta ons and life

skill situa ons to make a child a “life long learner.”

To assist the facilitator, Unit-one “MYSELF” is equipped with Audio Visual aids , resource

material, visits ,trips and nature walks to cater to the diff erent needs of the students so

that “no student is le behind”. Further emphasis is given to diff erent groups of learners

like (Audio learners, Visual learner, Kinesthe c learners) to keep them con nuously

mo vated. The unit is supported with worksheets to reinforce the diff erent concepts

taken up in the lesson plans. At the end of each of the lesson plan, the rubrics have been

designed to help the facilitator to assess for herself that learning has taken place during

the teaching of the en re unit.
