CMP Bala Vihar® Grade 8A
Class 8 : Summary
RAW review: Is one organ more important than another in our body?: This question was asked for kids to reflect on how the body needs every organ big and small to function as a whole. We related it to jobs and functions in a society and how differences of high and low in jobs is created by man. Society benefits from all workers.
Story: We narrated the story of the grand tournament organized by Drona to display his students' talents at the end of their education. We talked about Karna's intrusion and circumstances leading to a firm friendship being formed between him and Duryodhana.
Reflection: We analyzed the characters of Drona, Kripa and other elders. Kunti and her conflict. Karna and his pride, shame, stigma and gratitude to Duryodhana. Duryodhana's real intentions in offer of respect and friendship to Karna etc. Pandava's and Arjuna's emotions in all of this.
RAW: The theme for this week is 'You are the company you keep'. Kids have been asked to reflect and cite example characters and situations from a book or movie.
