Learners celebrated World’s Tiger Day with fingerprint activity.
Educators narrated the short story of the tiger and also gave the explanation to the learners that “Unfortunately due to our carelessness, tigers are now on the verge of extinction. If we don’t realize they need to protect them right now, we might just lose them forever and the future generations will only know about them in books and in pictures. Today’s activity was an attempt to get our learners to take charge of the situation and disseminate the message further.”
