Insect Hunt

The first session was by Mr. Poochi Venkat, a well known insect lover fondly known as Poochi Venkat.

He started the session on how the color of clothes affected the environment..He suggested children to wear dark green or brown dress next time while trecking or during insect hunt. He briefed us on what we should do while hunting insects. Insect hunt started around 8.15 pm. The area selected for insect hunt was the KG block. Everyone started to delve deep into the fascinating world of creatures. We located different types of spiders, dome web spider, fibanoacci spider, crab spider both male and female, locusts, praying mantis, wasps and bugs, African snail, garden lizard, so many tiny insects and the list was endless. He also said that the ecosystem is well maintained which attract lots of insects.

He also explained the why, what and how of the behavior of insects. Insect hunt came to a halt around 9.15pm though their hearts urged them to stay on for some more time. He did a review of the entire hunt and asked children to draw and colour the insects which they had seen and had asked them to explore the word 'Bio pose'.

The session not only taught us about insects, but also fearlessness, patience and understanding of the sensitivity of insects. The entire insect hunt instilled a respect for small creatures and built curiosity to gain more knowledge and learn values from them.
