Water play on a hot day at 'Earth House'

Today it was a hot day and perfect occasion for a 'Water Play'. Under hot, shining sun, kids enjoyed playing with water. The ground looked like a battle field where kids were shouting, running and throwing water at each other with their water guns.

We know that play is essential for children’s development and early learning. It helps children to develop and improve their gross and fine motor skills, co-ordination and concentration.

Importance and learning benefits of water play for kids:

Playing with water fosters learning in all developmental areas. It provides opportunities for children to experiment with math and science concepts, strengthen their physical skills, advance their social and emotional skills, and enhance language development.

An adventure and learning tour of Earth House School

Earth House- Kashimpur (Gazipur District) was created few years back "to be a place where learning in natural environment takes place" 
Learning can be fun when it is integrated with play or leisure activities and creating links with real life situations and 'Earth House at Kashimpur is the place where it happens.

Our Friday 8 May 2015, trip was part of 'Adventure Journey' program for 'Duke of Edinburgh Awards' and as being an award leader, I was excited too.
Earth House- Kashimpur
We left Dhaka at 7.30 am (morning) and reached there at 9.00 am and the first view of the place was enough to refresh our minds and souls. After breakfast we were ready to explore the place and do some educational activities. The first part was to gather the group of our children and ask them to follow teacher's instruction while following safety rules.

The climate in Manali is cold during winters, and moderately cool during summers. We visited Manali during first week of April, and it was cold there. Weather is very uncertain, as within few minutes, you can feel warm sun light and other few minutes, rain starts with cold wind.
