TO MA'AM WITH LOVE.....

Fed up with the cut,copy.... paste answers that my students wrote,I motivated them to be creative and write out answers in their own words.Little did I realize that their over- active little brains were actually mixing up instructions,that I gave them for the three different subjects that I teach them.
Sometimes, to motivate them and unblock their inhibitions,I ask them to write their essays without worrying about spellings or grammar.They follow that diligently in all subjects,including their exams and some proudly have even declared this to their parents.
(i had a tough time justifying my move to the authorities).
Likewise instructions, to be creative and think out of the box were applied to Science and social studies.

The nominations for the category.......MOST CREATIVE ANSWERS goes to.....

Livestock is ......

1.when animals are domesticated for our use and there is profit.



2.when domestic animals are overused for profit,they are called livestock.

(so much of truth here)

White revolution

........is the cultivation of cattle.


Pisciculture is

........actually bio gas,which is made from cow dung.



alternate source of energy is force.

(and this is going to be true in the near future)



Bi -product of petroleum is speed.

(profound indeed !!!! am sure this kid isn't from bangalore...coz the poor souls haven't had a chance to witness a phenomenon called speed at all)



fossil fuel is

...... when we use the remains of all dead and decomposed things.



blue revolution is......

motivating fisherman to produce more fish by themselves.



operation flood was .

......when a new breed that produced milk was introduced.
