Changes such as slow and fast, physical and chemical and reversible and irreversible. Changes affect shape, size, position, state of matter and internal structure.

“The only way of learn mathematics is to do mathematics”
Grade VII students explained Data Handling to Grade IV students through activities based on the topic. One of the activities was based on bar graph during which the students were divided into several groups, different types of chocolates and A4 sheet was given to them to represent a bar graph. Another activity was based on pictograph during which students used their favourite toy to make a picture presentation.

In the experiment, the resource persons demonstrated about red litmus paper and blue litmus paper, and tested them for vinegar, lime water, lemon juice, water and washing powder solution. They also explained about the changing color of the two litmus paper in different medium.

Children of Grade V themselves carried out the activity and experienced how the test for different acidic and basic substance takes place.
