To awaken curiosity and encourage children to ask questions fearlessly, an ‘Ask Why’ campaign was started in RISE School. Children ask questions about day to day phenomena. One question is discussed in detail each day during assembly. It is amazing to see the things which children notice. Questions like, ‘why does milk overflow on heating but not water’, ‘how do mosquitos see at night’, ‘why do we have eyebrows’… the questions are endless!
It’s an enjoyable ‘problem’ for the teachers who face this barrage of questions, and often educative too. We have planned to compile all the questions and answers and release a book, with teachers and students as authors.
