Indian display

Indian Display

Monday, December 22nd, 2008
Adi’s Mum and Dad are from India. They speak English and Bengali. They came to our class to tell us really interesting things aboutIndia…….
....Adi’s Dad had a great presentation to show us. He showed us the Indian flag and map, and told us that it would take us 8 hours to fly to India by aeroplane. He showed us photographs of the Himalayan mountains in the north, the desert in the west, the sea and beaches of the south, and the lovely bay and sea of the east. We saw pictures of peacocks, a tiger, lotus flower, cricket, Taj Mahal, traditional food, clothes, festivals, art andarchitecture, travel, and a really interesting piece from an Indian film. It was all so interesting.

Adi’s Mum showed us her everyday clothes, and also how to wear a sari. We were really surprised at how much material is in each sari. We saw Indian jewellery (it was lovely), spices, and home decorations. Adi and his mum and dad showed us how they say their prayers in Bengali, and they also let us try some traditional snacks. They were salty rather than sweet. They weredelicious. Thanks so much to Alok and Tanu for letting us experience India in such an interesting and fun way.
