An assembly of family pictures as a collage allows metaphorical representation of events and influences which have molded a child’s personality. It also takes one down a journey of one’s life with people who have special meaning in their lives and providing a view from different perspectives.
So we decided to take the students on a journey down the memory lane. The students were asked to collect and bring photographs related to their family and events to prepare Family Collage. The creativity of the students came to the forefront when they showcased their life with the help of photographs in innovative manners using mount board and thermocol. They decorated them with flower and decorative material. The children actively participated in the activity with full zeal and gusto. It was an enjoyable experience for us teachers seeing them interact and exchange information about their family with their friends. They also gave presentations on their collage and excitedly shared their memories with their counterparts. The class was a buzz of activity as the children animatedly babbled about the beautiful memories of their life .Their collage, a glimpse of their sweet memories marking their child hood events taught them the importance of their family in their life and taught them to cherish them.
