ISA Activity – Fight Like a Girl

Inspired by the ‘Fight Like a Girl’ movement, our 6th graders have been learning about the importance of gender equality. Using a Google Form they identified the prevelant stereotypes in their local community and their impact on the lives of men and women. By studying various published studies students understood the gender discrimination and stereotyping prevalant in the US and UK too. Students understood how discrimination is present in the movies, pop music and the news as well. They also highlighted the women who are breaking the glass cieling and shattering the society’s pre-conceived notions.

Author Interaction Session!

Our 5th graders were overjoyed to participate in an interactive session with the author of their Reader Book – ‘So You Want to Know About the Environment?’ – Ms. Bijal Vachharajani. Ms. Bijal inspired our Brainzites with her love of books and by answering every question that they had to ask her.
Interaction sessions with authors is an excellent means of stoking young minds and promoting a love for reading in children. We thank Ms. Bijal for sparing so much of her precious time and interacting with our Brainzites!
