To share the study of varieties of fruits found in India and Russia highlighting the effect of climatic conditions on their growth, the nutrients found in them, a skype session was conducted in Gwalior Glory High School with Buturlinovskaya Secondary School 4 in Buturlinovka town, Russia. Students from both the countries displayed bowls of tempting fruit salad made with fruits found in their country. During the session, students of Gwalior Glory High School introduced the students of Russia with the importance of Ayurveda and Yoga through the characters portrayed of Charaka, Patanjali and Sushruta.
The students of classes III and IV have studied about fruits from various countries (India, Russia, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Japan) under an activity titled- ‘My Fruit Bag … Health with Taste’. Apart from the Skype Session , under the project a visit to an orchard was also organized that gave opportunity to the learners to know how fruits are grown, observed trees of different fruits and learnt steps of cultivating them.
