This week we have been busy finding out and trying got understand the characteristics that made the civilizations.

Researching through the internet to know more about the lost worlds.

Taking our quest for knowledge further, we visited the Prince of Wales museum to learn more about the Indus Valley civilization.

Ms. Maya came along with us to understand the different words used in Hindi for the olden day commodities.
 Stay tuned to see what we churn up with all the information we have collected.

We moved on to looking at nets of 3D shapes. We discovered that 3 d shapes are actually made up of 2 D shapes.
