British Council ISA 4: Endangered  Species  - Shoot with Camera…Not Gun

There was this old, vile man with a beard
Who the African elephants feared,
“Bang, bang!” went his shotgun
For him it was such fun
The African Elephants disappear!

Animals are one of the most beautiful creatures existing on the planet but the irresponsible behavior of the human beings is troubling the existence of animals. Habitat loss, hunting and poaching are some of the major threats to the life of these creatures. It is the need of the hour to conserve these endangered species that are under the threat of extinction, for a balanced growth on the planet.

Endangered species can be stated to an animal if they are either disappearing fast from the face of the planet or are very sparsely populated, which is not good enough for survival of the animal community in the long run.

In order to make students aware about the importance of saving these beautiful creatures on earth and to help them understand and gain perspective on human issues that are continuing to endanger animals and threatening our global environment, the Prayaagians were made to develop an attitude of conserving endangered animals and their protection measures around the world by following activities.

SAVING ENDANGERED SPECIES: There was a collaborative activity which was conducted with the objective of making our children explore and gather information about different endangered species of the world and various reasons for their getting endangered. Students of Class III, IV and V did a plethora of activities in order to fulfill the objective, wherein Class V students collected data regarding the endangered species and their protection measures from magazines and internet and shared the same through video with Class III and IV students.

POSTER MAKING & QUIZ: Then, there was a very informative and creative activity wherein the students of Class IV came up with beautiful and expressive posters of various endangered animals. The Quiz Show enabled the students to undergo a brainstorming session, which helped them to widen their horizons about the significance of habitat on earth.

SHOW AND TELL: In this activity the students of Class III were prepared to participate in the activity in which students spoke about various endangered species depicting information of the same, whose evidences were displayed and uploaded on different online portals in order to spread awareness among people all around the world.

CIRCULARS AND FEEDBACK: Not only this, even the parents and guardians of the students were made aware about the importance of saving and conserving the endangered species for a balanced growth on earth through various circulars. Also, a feedback was taken from students, teachers and parents.
